It is a known fact that F1 drivers somehow garner a fondness for yachts in time, with Kimi Raikkonen, being one of the prime examples. Similarly, his Ferrari successor, Charles Leclerc, managed to become the owner of a classy-looking yacht.

In 2020, the Monegasque was one of the known faces to visit the world’s biggest boat show and trade fair, the 2020 boot Düsseldorf, and may have gained interest in the Docleriva yacht, built by the world-class brand, Riva. Eventually, Leclerc managed to become the proud owner of the open yacht, in August 2020.

What’s interesting is that Leclerc left Monte Carlo after this year’s Monaco Grand Prix on the very same yacht, which grabbed the fans’ attention. So, take a look at what the yacht has to offer.

About Monza – the yacht owned by Charles Leclerc

Leclerc may have been born in Monaco. But, his love for Italy has been quite evident on several occasions, with the yacht being one of them.

Leclerc opted to name his yacht after the world-famous Italian racing circuit, Monza. What’s more, the Monegasque also has the name engraved on the back of the substantially huge cruiser. The Ferrari driver does hold a race victory to his name around Monza, having won the 2019 Italian GP.

Coming back to Leclerc’s water cruiser, the yacht is about 15m in length, which is approximately 48ft, and weighs around 25 tons. It also holds a powerful Volvo D13-800 engine, which helps the yacht speed up to a decent 35 knots. The engine also withholds a power of 800 HP, with a V-drive transmission.

This medium-sized cruiser can accommodate up to 10 members on board. Monza also possesses a cabin underneath, with a sleek-looking bathroom.

The interior of Monza

The open deck has white couches on either side of the yacht, with two more facing the back. This is primarily to offer a great view of the surrounding.

The lower deck has an L-shaped couch, with a coffee table in the middle. Alongside the living area is a tiny room with a massive king-size bed, along with a bathroom. What’s more, there is also a mini kitchen with wardrobes to hold required utensils and also clothes.

Leclerc managed to get hold of such possession with possibly over 10 years of racing left in hand. So, with the future suggesting that the Monegasque will likely earn more than he does at the moment, will he seek a much bigger yacht than Monza at some point?
