McConaghy: First order for the MC55 signed
Wednesday, August 14, 2019 10:10 AM
McConaghy is delighted to have received the first order for the all-new MC55; the latest addition to the award-winning McConaghy Multihulls series of semi-custom fast cruising luxury catamarans.
The owners have elected for a top level equipment specification and a number of custom features. These include a hydraulic, telescopic passerelle seamlessly integrated into the transom structure, aft deck lounge seating with built-in fridge and barbecue, and a modified saloon island with raise-and-lower television. These design innovations were conceptualised by the creative and progressive owner, then drawn and engineered by our in-house design team.
This range has been designed using a group of experienced owners and sailors (who between them have spent decades sailing and cruising multihulls), a highly experienced design and engineering team, and McConaghy’s 50 years of building yachts for the most demanding customers and conditions.
Powerful yet easy to manage under sail, the MC55 is the latest addition to the McConaghy Multihulls range. An extremely luxurious finish comes as standard and enhancements to the aft deck give a larger area for socializing, space for watersports toys and additional systems.
The MC55 not only benefits from McConaghy’s vast experience building performance boats but also from a carefully considered use of carbon, that sees her precise hull forms achieve an optimum strength to weight ratio.
As with all McConaghy Multihulls, the MC55 has dual helm positions on the flybridge, allowing for the greatest sight lines forward as well as an elevated position that aids more difficult in-port manoeuvres – making her an ideal choice for those new to multihull cruising.
There are two accommodation layouts to choose from; a four-cabin layout (all en suite) or a three-cabin layout, which allows for a large master suite, complete with private study, in the starboard hull.
The wide saloon offers a versatile and spacious living area that, with large windows running the full length of the hulls and fully retractable glass doors to aft, is exceptionally light and provides fantastic views. The galley is arranged open-plan to this area, which creates an apartment-like feel and is particularly well suited to socialising and family living.
The MC55’s interior styling comes from Design Unlimited, an award-winning studio with extensive experience in both large custom yachts and the production sector. Their attention to detail and innovative storage solutions allow living space to be maximised, with the client able to choose from an array of customisable options and a choice of three main interior colour schemes.
