The yacht features a spacious saloon complete with a dining area and an open plan galley.Her aft deck is accessed via glass sliding doors and features sofas and an al fresco dining space, while an additional lounge is situated at her bow. Her flybridge offers panoramic views, an informal dining area, sun loungers and freestanding furniture, making the space multipurpose. The space is shaded by a fixed bimini.
The yacht can accommodate up-to eight guests between four double staterooms, which are situated in each hull. There is the option to convert two of the staterooms into twin accommodations. Each of the staterooms is en suite.The MC82p features a flexible interior layout, which can be modified to accommodate an owner’s needs. Mark Evans, the CEO of McConaghy, notes, “The general arrangement of any McConaghy multihull can be configured to specifically suit each client’s requirements. Some clients like to have a master suite on the main deck, while others request fewer but larger guest suites and some place greater emphasis on crew accommodation and layout versatility. We pride ourselves on being able to meet any client request – this is production boat building with full-custom possibility.”Photo: McConaghy BoatsThe yacht can store a 5.7-metre tender, which is carried on a hydraulic aft platform. When her tender is deployed her transom can serve as a swim platform. She is equipped with twin Yanmar engines and is able to reach a top speed of 17 knots and a cruising speed of 10 knots. Due to the lightweight nature of her hull, her builders estimate a reduction of fuel usage between 30-50%, compared to other vessels in her class.
