The McConaghy Boats Zhuhai Facility in China has launched Adastra, a 42.5 metre Trimaran built atfor a Hong Kong client for long range ocean voyaging. She is designed by John Shuttleworth Design. Adastra is the result careful design, planning and discussion with the owners, to build a yacht that meets the needs of a very experienced couple, and to provide the level of comfort and style that would be expected in a yacht of this class and size.
The superstructure is carbon fibre with Nomex honeycomb core, the hull is Glass/Kevlar foam sandwich and the interior is light weight oak cabinetry using honeycomb panels. To help reduce weight, virtually every aspect of the boat is custom built. This includes carbon fibre hatches, portlights, ladders and even hinges, which are all built specifically for the vessel.
Adastra's 16 metre beam creates a spacious saloon area on the main deck which offers superb views through a panoramic window and accommodates a lounge area, dining table, and navigation station. A forward facing door through the saloon window gives easy access to a large sunbed on the foredeck. The aft deck has a sofa and bar area to port and a dining area to starboard, further aft of this there is space for a 4.9 metre tender and directly below is a garage which can store a 3.1 metre tender.
