    SAMARIC is designed and built to get you where you want to go, easily, quickly, comfortably and safely. Or if you prefer, you can just cruise, discovering all the islands and inlets in-between where you left and where you are going I brought her from Southampton to Palma across the widest part of the bay of Biscay and she was a perfect motor yacht to sail with 4 crew for the trip. She behaved impeccably.


    Timeless design, classy and comfort combine with efficiency and handling, the Monte Fino Yachts F-class Flybridge motor yacht range will never fail to impress. It offers everything you need for luxurious cruising with family and friends. The large exterior decks spaces are perfect for entertaining and enjoying the sun and sea.

    ‘’Large signature main deck window lines running along each side provide a sleek, dynamic profile and plenty of natural light for the main deck saloon and dining area.

    This stylish motor yacht designed by the internationally renowned Rob Humphreys, delivers the finest cruising experience to owners who relish the thrill of controlling their yacht from the fly bridge. Large exterior deck spaces on the fly bridge and aft deck allow plenty of space for alfresco relaxation and entertainment.

    Sliding doors lead from the aft deck to the spacious and light-filled single level saloon with relaxing and comfort furniture and a dining area. Forward of these lie the galley and main steering position with helmsmen door to allow crews to access these areas from side decks. Ensuring the utmost privacy for you and your guests. The lower deck features a full-beam master suite with three guest cabins, all ensuite.


    The Monte Fino 78 is the first in the Monte Fino series to benefit from a comprehensive review from Humphreys Yacht Design. The exterior and interior have benefited from a complete redesign by HYD. The all‐new superstructure now boasts a streamlined and powerful aspect accentuated by the tapered effect of the main saloon window, while a pair of large viewing ports, inset into the hull just above the waterline amidships, gives occupants of the owner’s suite a stunning position from which to view the world outside.
    Powered by twin CAT C‐32 1550 HP diesels, the Monte Fino 78 has a top speed of 24 knots, and at her cruising speed of around 12 knots has a range of 580 nm. Owners tend to cruise at 10 knots consuming less than 50 litres per hour per engine.
