Grant Dalton to build a McConaghy semi foiling multihull
Grant Dalton, New Zealand round the world yachtsman and CEO of America’s Cup Defender Emirates Team New Zealand, has a new 63-foot power catamaran in build at McConaghy Boats in Zhuhai, China.
This carbon Power Cat will have fixed foils and will be a particularly fuel-efficient vessel at her 20-knot cruising speed, yet the MC63P will be able to achieve a top speed of 36 kts and offers a range of 1,500 nautical miles.
Grant said: “Working together with McConaghy Boats and Ker Design, we have developed this exciting fuel-efficient semi foiling power multihull.” The shipyard confirmed the build is in progress, though no more details have been released about the yacht yet. More information is expected later this Spring.
