At the recent Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show MCC introduced their new MCC 38m; a yacht design in harmony with the times. Like the existing and soon to be completed 45m yachts the 38 has the most economic single screw propulsion in the market with electrically driven Schottel jets for "get you home" security. The Schottels normally act as bow and stern thrusters easing manoeuvring.
The original 45m Marco Polo was highly economical not only in price but operation as well. Now the 38m - first MCC design of new in house designer Kasia Milewska - goes even further with an astounding 5300nm range at 11 knots for only 80 lph.
The owner will not only enjoy significant savings but will be confident he owns a green vessel. For the first time on an MCC yacht he will tread upon kebony wood decks. Kebony is a wood impregnated and heat treated to offer teak performance and looks yet using an environmentally sound, sustainable wood. The bulwarks are topped with composite rather than teak Handrails.
The yacht has many large-yacht features. The generous galley is below on the crew deck, two guest cabins Owner and VIP are on the main deck with two more below.
Possibly very unique at this size is an elevator connecting lower deck to uppermost sundeck and serving all decks between There is even a separate radio room adjacent to the generous and professional bridge. The MCC 38m interior is customisable with finishes available raging from a broad selection of eco-friendly timbers, fabrics, wall covering and stone. She has significant exterior spaces with the yacht’s tender stored safely in a hard covered well on the fore deck and has a hard Bimini top.
Aft a massive lazarette gives onto a spacious beach-style stern door and swim platform, ready for the enjoyment for the guests in minutes as tender and toys handling will be performed by the crew on the foredeck.
The yacht is in MCC's signature steel hull with composite superstructure used since their first 2007 build. Its generous proportions house 7 crew and captain with the 8 guests in their charge in greatest comfort.
The main engine is a CAT C32 while generators are Northern Lights. The Naiad at anchor stabilisation ensures calm aboard in all types of anchorage and sea conditions.
The MCC 38m then is a yacht for times and clients demanding: top quality; innovation with economic and planet-friendly operation as well as lowest maintenance requirements; timely delivery and last but not least highly competitive pricing.
The success of that formula is amply illustrated by the number of serious enquiries received in the short time since the Miami show. There is no doubt that she will make her way as another leader for the market.
