MC62 Top Class Design and Engineering
The McConaghy 62 multihull is the bigger sistership to the MC55 and was designed from the ground up by Jason Ker.

Overview of the McConaghy 62 multihull
The entire McConaghy catamaran range from 52 to 100′ were designed as super-flybridge yachts that can approach sailing at wind speed.

One of the World’s Safest Catamarans
Unlike many other high-performance catamarans – the McConaghy 62 has been designed and engineered with safety as its core parameter. Potentially hazardous daggerboards which could create a hull breach have been avoided and replaced by a simple but highly effective push-button centerboard system. This is a first in this luxury multihull market segment. In the retracted position the centerboard is completely flush with the hull. Consequently when fully deployed the MC62 has a draft of nearly 9’, which rivals the most efficient windward foils. In case of striking an underwater object, the centerboards will automatically raise and avoid damage to the hull structure.
Highly Engineered and Built to Last
The McConaghy 62 is crafted in a controlled vacuum infusion process of E-glass, Epoxy and Carbon. This makes the much lighter and stronger than similar length catamarans. Consequently she can have an open concept salon and is immensely stiff. Just as America’s Cup foiling catamarans the McConaghy 62’s stiffness and full carbon longeron also allow for her forward crossbeam elimination.

The McConaghy 62 multihull has a streamlined “super-fly”-bridge like much larger vessels. Dont be fooled, she is still a true Grand Prix style yacht with exceptional light air performance. She has a multitude of innovative features, such as a completely opening, all glass aft salon doors and giant sliding side salon windows. This means that most of the time, even in pouring rain you can enjoy an “open” platform with full protection from the elements. The MC62’s flybridge provides not only a perfect social gathering space, but also lets the helmsman fully control this thoroughbred from one single control station.
