Kealoha, the Claasen Jachtbouw/Hoek 27.5m sloop and Nirvana, the Vitters/Dubois/GCA 53.5m ketch (and Monaco Yacht Show winner of the “Prix du Design”), both won their categories at the International Superyacht Awards during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. MCM were Construction Managers for Kealoha and partially for Nirvana, as well as two other nominees, Red Dragon (52m Dubois) and Angel (25.4m Langan).
Nigel Ingram who oversaw both projects in The Netherlands says “It is quite a challenge to produce a relatively small volume, classically styled yacht such as Kealoha, including all of the interior and systems features that are expected of today’s Superyachts while maintaining truly sparkling performance under sail. Congratulations to the Hoek/Claasen team for achieving this. The technical set up of Nirvana was one of our most challenging projects to date with many new extraordinary features incorporated in this high volume, shallow draft hull form. Again congratulations to the Vitters/Dubois teams on this magnificent yacht and to GCA for her truly remarkable modern, interior”.
With over 60 yachts behind them in 20 years in business, the majority sailing yachts, Nigel Ingram and Peter Wilson, MCM’s founding directors are recognised in the industry by owners, designers, builders and captains as the ‘heavyweights’ who really know the business inside-out and add value to new build projects and ongoing operations management.
Two MCM new-build projects, motor and sail, will launch in 2009 and a further four in 2010.
