Thought this thread was worth keeping alive. The MC2 is built by McConaghy Boats in Hong Kong
, an Australian boat builder
. I believe he built the 2 Yendys, the first one went on to win the Sydney
to Hobart in '99, a Farr 49 weighing 6.7 ton and then a 56ft IRC rated boat that has now been sold. Plus many Sydney
to Hobart boats that have run the race
and done very well.
Is McConaghy the fastest cruising cat out there? We don't know till we see it compete against the other leading designs around the world. But this designer
has come up with some incredible mono-hull designs, that have won races and still winning around the world. We're yet to see a McConaghy MC2 60 come up against an Outremer
, G-Force or a Gunboat of similar size, but they are definitely lighter with a big sail plan. So the jury is still out till we see them compete against each other, but we all look forward to seeing how they go.
