McConaghy is pleased to announce we will release our new line of sailing catamarans at Boot Dusseldorf 23 January 2016.
The first yachts to be released in the series will be 50’, 60’ and 90’ high performance cruising catamarans.
Naval architecture and styling is by Ker Yacht Design. McConaghy and Ker have collaborated for many years on racing and cruising yacht projects. Ker’s experience with BAR Racing (Britain’s America’s Cup race team) have put them at the very leading edge of multihull design, which combined with their undoubted styling ability, made them a natural choice.
The series is aimed at the sailor who wants performance, safety, comfort and aesthetic design. Based on an "open plan" layout, ensuring versatile use of the boat in all conditions. The boats are designed by sailors for sailors, to attract the established catamaran sailor who just wants the best, and the performance-oriented keel boat owner looking for added comfort and volume - and a desire for speed!
McConaghy's expertise and know-how in lightweight, high strength, composite construction – combined with our existing expertise in multihull builds (140’ Tri Adastra, 60’ MC2, 53’ Banuls Tri) and 45+ years of race boat experience will benefit the multihull sector – where weight has a big impact on performance.
