DescriptionRedefining speed, luxury and elegance.
The experience of McConaghy, Banuls Design and Thomas Coville benefits the MC²78 making it a safe, easy to handle, high performance catamaran.
The MC² Catamarans range started with the MC²60. The concept was then extended to smaller and larger models to offer the MC²53 and MC²78.
The MC²78 is constructed entirely from the best composite materials, using premium cores (Corecell) and premium fibers (E-Glass and carbon) bound together with premium epoxy resin systems (as opposed to lower grade resin systems such as polyester or vinylester).
High-density cores are used in high-load areas. We do not use timber or plywood cores, which are too heavy and may be susceptible to rot nor do we use monolithic reinforcements that can be unnecessarily heavier. The entire structure is resin-infused and post-cured at an elevated temperature. Using the best premium materials available, proven McConaghy manufacturing methods and world-class engineering provides the MC²78 with an extremely high quality structure.
The MC²78 is a custom high performance luxury catamaran that will set new standards of speed, luxury and elegance.
She was born from the vision of designing an elegant, sleek looking, high performance cruising catamaran. Is not just a fast cat but a luxury cat, which represents the next generation of composite, high-performance sailing catamarans.
