About this McConaghy MC85

The Makara 85 sailing superyacht series features subtle intricacies and perfectly proportioned style, that’s benefitted from the full scope of McConaghy’s experience in the build of high-performance carbon fiber race boats. The Makara 85 is a lightweight luxury yacht series, which brings the superyacht lifestyle to the racecourse in a way never seen before.

The Makara 85 series features subtle intricacies and perfectly proportioned style. Her exterior lines incorporate a defined hull chine and low profile superstructure, with dark glass giving a dynamic and striking contrast to the teak deck and paintwork. McConaghy designed her hull to glide with the lightest of breeze delivering the highest levels of sailing performance with minimal effort and maximum comfort.

Constructed using prepreg carbon and structural foam cores, this model has a lightship displacement of just 48 tonnes. The rig package for the Makara series has been specified by Southern Spars, and a client can hone their racing and cruising preferences with the optional additions of a bowsprit and a lifting keel. Advanced systems and sail handling technology deliver push-button performance with effortless ease, and confident blue water cruising even for a solo sailor.

The MC85 is able to offer four different layout options with a three or four cabin layout, all en suite, as well as separate quarters for a 2 or 3 live-aboard crew. Also, available with Telescopic Keel System.
