About the MC52

The MC52 might be the smallest multihull in the McConaghy range, but this cat is no kitten. The MC52 not only benefits from McConaghy’s vast experience building performance boats but also from a carefully considered use of carbon, that sees her precise hull forms achieve an optimum strength to weight ratio. As with all McConaghy Multihulls, the MC52 has dual helm positions on the flybridge, allowing for the greatest sight lines forward as well as an elevated position that aids more difficult in-port manoeuvres – making her an ideal choice for those new to multihull cruising.


Three-cabin layout, with a large master suite, complete with private study, in the starboard hull, and two guest en suite in the port side hull. The wide saloon offers a versatile and spacious living area that, with large windows running the full length of the hulls and fully retractable glass doors to aft, is exceptionally light and provides fantastic views. The galley is arranged open-plan to this area, which creates an apartment-like feel and is particularly well suited to socialising and family living. Air conditioning, reverse cycle, throughout.

Fully retractable centreboards giving a draft of between 1.35 and 3.75 metres. Unique to McConaghy, the centreboards are operated at the push of a button from either helm station to give maximum upwind or downwind performance with minimal effort. Three pre-set positions; flush with hull when retracted. With safety in mind, the pivots are fitted with a “fuse” which allows them to kick up should they come into contact with an underwater obstruction.
