Currently McConaghy Boats employs 190 staff worldwide and remains the world leader in Race Boat manufacture.
McConaghy Boats are recognised as world leaders in composite technology. The skills and techniques they employ have seen many yacht designers employing the established expertise of their builders, to ensure their own products have the very best possible chance of success in today's highly competitive industry.
Forged partnerships have led to the Ker, MC and Botin ranges of modern high performance racing yachts. These boats from the outset have had huge success across the race boat scene worldwide, and with their vast new manufacturing facility in China, McConaghy Boats is very much on the front foot when looking forward on the race boat scene.
More recently McConaghy has entered the cruising catamaran market with the S49, utilising their engineering prowess to produce another great looking boat that fast yet capable of take a cruising family around the world in comfort and in safety.
The exciting line of Jason Ker designs has been taking the racing circuit by storm and their reputation for success now precedes every event in which they partake.
Designed, developed and built in house, the MC range offers the highest performance, one design raceboats anywhere in the world.
Riding the wave of popularity in the recent development of Fast Forties, Botin Partners and McConaghy have just teamed up to offer the Botin 40, the latest in this 40-foot genre which offers the high performance and high technology of a custom design and build, but at the great value of a production price.
McConaghy Boats has spent the past 3 decades perfecting them after founder John McConaghy became the first marine manufacturer to adopt and pioneer the aerospace industries developing lamination technology.
We are pleased to present our new range of Ker designed catamarans.
McConaghy and Ker have collaborated for many years on racing and cruising yacht projects. Ker’s experience with BAR Racing (Britain’s America’s Cup race team) have put them at the very leading edge of multihull design, which combined with their undoubted styling ability, made them a natural choice to work with.
We are pleased to announce the release of two new modern Classics. 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. Constructed with 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 customisation and owner involvement to ensure every yacht is unique. The yachts will be built at McConaghy’s facilities near Hong Kong, the same facilities that build many of the world’s leading race yachts.
Ancasta feel privileged to be the European dealer for McConaghy Boats, having establised an excellent working relationship with the company who we consider to be the unriavelled world leader in composite yacht manufacturing.
Since the release of the McConaghy Ker 40 , Sam’s attentions have been focused on managing and sailing the class in both European and UK based campaigns.
Knowing the pedigree of the Ker and McConaghy, Sam said that when the opportunity came up with Ancasta to represent this brand and their extremely impressive race boat catalogue, he immediately recognised the potential to take the Ker class and other grand prix boats to the next level of sales and service.
The Ancasta Group MD, Nick Griffith, obviously comes to the party with a wealth of experience under his belt regarding all of our brands, but his personal passion is and always has been racing, which he has been doing since a young man in Australia. Arrving on our shores ..
