MC50 CAT to debut at La Grande Motte

There’s a new cat on the block

The MC50 CAT is currently in Marseilles, with preparations underway for her much anticipated debut at The International Multihull Boat Show in La Grande Motte, April 18 – 22, 2018.

This dream performance multihull is already creating a lot of buzz… When Jason Ker designed the McConaghy MC50, his primary focus was to deliver a performance multihull with more space and more accommodation that goes fast – very fast!

Speed, safety, comfort and luxury define the MC50.

As John Cowpe noted after viewing the MC50 at the factory in China, “McConaghy has an amazing pedigree for building high quality, strong, racing boats. We went to inspect the interior of hulls 1 and 2, as they’re targeting the luxury end of the market – and what we saw did not disappoint.

What was impressive with the fit and finish, was that there was no sign of any fibreglass in the interior, it’s all finished, upholstered and detailed to a high level. The door framing, the doors and handles, the headboards… the whole package has come together beautifully with the help of Design Unlimited.”


Advanced composite materials are used throughout. The use of a 3.5m fully retractable centreboard – as opposed to conventional keel ballast – results in a lighter boat that will regularly sail at 20 knots+. And the minimal draft allows the boat to cruise in shallow waterways and moor closer to shore.

A built-in helm station on the flybridge affords a commanding 360-degree view of your cruising area. Great visibility means maneuvering and marina berthing is a breeze.

The optional hydraulic swim platform creates your own private terrace with easy access to the water for swimming and water sports. Spacious uncluttered non-slip decks provide safe, easy access to the foredeck area and composite carbon longeron – an impressive statement of this multihull’s prowess.

The use of light modern timbers and soft fabric finishings ooze style and sophistication. The galley provides ample space for even the most discerning chef. All accommodation options are bright, light airy spaces with fine lines and designer touches – there is a sense of richness and high-quality throughout.

The MC50 CAT ticks all the boxes.


The International Multhihull Boat Show

Launched in 2010, the International Multihull Boat Show presents multihulls afloat in exclusive surrounds.

The diversity of the multihulls on show; catamarans, trimarans, sailing and motor yachts, marks this as a major event of the nautical calendar for professionals and enthusiasts alike.

Ole John, Director, McCONAGHY Multihulls Europe explains “We have 2 boats available this year, MC50 hull one and two. Hull one is the one present at the show, which is for sale with delivery after Cannes Boatshow in September. MC50 hull 2 is more than 50% finished, and will also be delivered in September. Both are 3 cabin owners versions.”

If you miss the chance to see the MC50 at La Grande Motte, she will be on display at the Palma Boat Show in Mallorca at the end of April.
