The Makara superyacht series is the new breed high performance luxury racing yacht brought forward by McConaghy Boats and designed by Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design.
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.
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.
Advanced systems and sail handling technology deliver push-button performance with effortless ease, and confident blue water cruising even for a solo sailor.
