MCP releases more details of 92.5 RPH yacht
by Chris Jefferies
This 27.74 metre in-house design is being built entirely from aluminium with a 7.15 metre beam and a maximum draught of 1.85 metres. As these new images show, the exterior styling of the 92.5 RPH has evolved in recent months, the most notable change being a bold new colour scheme, replacing the classic blue finish that was originally proposed.
Elsewhere, the wheelhouse windows are now vertical and a cut-out section in the superstructure hints at a fold-out superyacht balcony.
Interior accommodation on the MCP 92.5 is for up to 12 guests split across six cabins, including a main-deck master suite, two doubles and three twin cabins. Cream furniture and light woodwork lends a relaxed atmosphere to the on-board décor.
The yard adds that it will be offering a four-cabin and a five-cabin alternative on any future models. The crew quarters allow for a staff of up to three people and features separate access on the portside of the engine room.
MCP Yachts can fit the 92.5 RPH with a range of engine installations from 2,030hp to 3,800hp, and the owner of the first hull has opted for the most powerful twin 1,900hp Caterpillar diesel engines, which are predicted to deliver a top speed of 25 knots. When cruising at 10 knots, the MCP 92.5 will boast a maximum cruising range of 3,000 nautical miles, thanks to its total fuel capacity of 8,796 litres.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Brazilian yard include the 43.28 metre MCP 140 Hemisphere and the 30.5 metre Silver Bullet 100, both of which are due to hit the water before the end of the year.
