So what sets the McConaghy 77 catamaran apart form the rest ? Lets start with the safe, push button control, high aspect ratio centerboards. Unlike many other high-performance catamarans – the MC77 has been designed and engineered with safety as its core parameter. Potentially hazardous daggerboards which could create a hull breach have been avoided and replaced by a simple but highly effective push-button centerboard system – a first in this luxury multihull market segment. In the retracted position the centerboard is completely flush with the hull, yet full deployed a high aspect draft of nearly 9’ rivals the most efficient windward foils. In case of striking an underwater object, the centerboards will automatically raise and avoid damage to the hull structure.
The McConaghy 77 catamaran also has no front crossbeam. Similar to the last generation of America’s Cup foiling catamarans which are so strong and light that they do not need a fwd. crossbeam, the McConaghy 77’s stiffness and full carbon longeron also allow for this elimination of the forward crossbeam, which further lightens this amazing yacht.
