The new McConaghy Classic 57 and the McConaghy Classic 67 combine the classic styling of Hoek Design, with the benefits of a performance cruising yacht, all built will some of the world’s most advanced production methods and materials.
These two yachts will be built in semi-production, but allow a level of customization and owner involvement to ensure every yacht is unique. The yachts will be built at McConaghy’s state of the art facilities near Hong Kong, the same facilities that build many of the worlds leading race yachts.
Andre Hoek commented, “I visited the McConaghy yard last year and was impressed by the quality of their composite work and experience in series production and robot systems. We then immediately initiated discussions on a range of hi-tech composite production yachts starting around 60 feet with an aim to develop Composite Superyachts as well.”
Andre Hoek added, “We are delighted to work together on these special craft with an experienced team of people on both sides of the globe and being able to serve both the European and Asian markets.”
The composite hulls employ carbon for structural reinforcement, carbon will also feature in items including the clear coat carbon wheel, pedestal and deck features.
Hoek Design hallmarks are evident in both yachts including long overhangs, attractive sheer, an open bulwark, a counter stern and low profile superstructure with wraparound windows.
Hoek Design has optimized the hull for fast cruising with a modern keel fin and bulb. In addition, the boat will feature optimized foils to bring an extra element of performance.
The yachts will be outfit with carbon rigs and both sailplans employ self-tacking jibs for ease of handling.
The interior is a fusion of classic styling with modern equipment and outfitting. All joinery is built and finished to McConaghy’s high quality standards. The interior is constructed using a mix of painted surfaces with timber laminate and soft fabric liners, and can be tailored to the client’s requirements.
