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.
The MC52 might be the smallest multihull in the McConaghy range, but this cat is no kitten. The MC52 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 MC52 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 arrangements offered as standard; 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.
Typical cruising catamarans feature an aft cockpit, usually protected by a soft enclosure, with a separate saloon accessed through the main bulkhead. The McConaghy MC50CAT steps away from this tradition with a saloon that extends all the way from the front windows to the aft passageway, creating one single, uncluttered space. This can be partially or fully opened with sliding clear panels, making the area both beautiful and versatile.
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 MC52’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.
