Builder McConaghy Boats has given a construction update on the first hull in its 23.3 metre MC75 sailing catamaran series.
The hull has now been released from the mould while construction on the interior furniture is also underway.
It comes after the yard commenced construction on the 23.9 metre MC82p in July 2021, which is set to be their largest yacht to hit the waters with a 2023 delivery date.
Speaking about the design, owner of m2atelier Marco Bonelli said: “We are honoured to have been involved in the interior design for the MC75, and to be working with such a revolutionary company [like McConaghy].”
With a beam of 9.3 metres, the MC75’s “apartment-like” open-plan interior features a large saloon lounge with a dining area and walk-around bar, while sofas and an alfresco dining space are located on the aft deck.
“The lightweight yacht is designed to offer contemporary on-water living. Lots of fully retractable windows and floor-to-ceiling glass create the perception of freedom,” said the yard.
The MC75 is estimated to reach 21 knots of speed in 20 knots of wind. Accommodation will be for a total of ten guests in five ensuite double cabins.
Construction on the MC75 began in June 2021, while a delivery date of autumn 2022 has been slated. McConaghy is best known for creating the iconic 42.6 metre trimaran Adastra, currently listed for sale with Burgess.
