2023 McConaghy Makara
MAKARA LUXURY SUPER SAILING YACHT The series comprises the Makara 85, Makara 105 and the Makara 120. The 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.
Benefitting from the full scope of McConaghy's experience in the build of high-performance carbon fibre race boats, the Makara is a lightweight luxury yacht series, which brings the superyacht lifestyle to the racecourse in a way never seen before.
The Makara series has been designed by Malcolm McKeon, and Pure Design have been engaged for the composite engineering. In bringing this design to the market place, the team set out to devise a monohull that whilst able to comfortably accommodate a family, can be sailed and raced short-handed.
Constructed using prepreg carbon and structural foam cores, the 25.9m 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.
The sail plan for the Makara 85 features a 189sq.m mainsail and a 149sq.m blade. The mainsheet trim comes with push-button functionality, thanks to an in-boom hydraulic ram and a hydraulic press system serving the blade.
This level of control offered to the helmsman brings single-handed sailing capability to the yachting mass-market place in an incredibly beautiful package. Mainsail Area - 2, 034 Feet Furling Jib - 1,603.82 Feet Semi-Custom Design Model options are from 85' to 120'
