The first MC²60 is nearing completion at McConaghy Boats and will be launched in February in Hong Kong where the boat will be permanently based. With some fine tuning on the initial design, the MC²60 now boast larger aft cabins.

From the drawing board of Bañulsdesign, the MC²60 is a semi custom catamaran offering the possibility to suit owner’s specific requirements.

While the MC²60 number one was designed specifically for single handed sailing, the second boat has a different cockpit layout with the helms located further forward, closer to the bulkhead with additional winches to accommodate fast boat handling with a crew of 5-6 rounding marks when racing. The MC²60 number two will leave the yard in April.

Like all boats built by McConaghy, weight saving is always critical and the interior has been manufactured using light weight core panels, similar to what was made for the custom 140ft (42.5 m) power trimaran Adastra that McConaghy Boats launched in April 2012.

The high modulus carbon masts for both MC²60 in production have arrived from Lorima in France. McConaghy Boats have manufactured the carbon beams, longeron, martingale, daggerboards and rudders.
