Wild Oats XI

Mark Richards, Skipper

“It’s a freak of a boat, you just don’t get 10-year-old boats in our sport even being competitive, so it’s just a freak to still do what it’s doing.”

Deepsea Challenge

James Cameron

“They came up with incredibly innovative solutions to the problems…. they sought new techniques, things that had never been done before” continued Cameron. “I owe myself, my safety in their hands and I trusted them, when they bolted the hatch closed and I descended, I knew the vehicle was right, it was well designed and well executed…I could not be prouder of this team, they made history” said Cameron.”

Finn N53

Clint Clemens

“I couldn’t be more pleased with the design and the build. The team at McConaghy really embraced the project during the build and really supported the boat through delivery and commissioning. The boat fulfils all my vision for the project in terms of handling and superb performance. The team definitely broughttheir composite and race boat skills to Finn.”

Shearwater 57’

Guido Belgiorno-Nettis, Owner

“When an owner embarks on the great journey of building their dream vessel, it’s critical to make the journey enjoyable. My wife and I had the pleasure of commissioning not one but two performance cruising yachts with McConaghy Australia. Both have exceeded our expectations.

McConaghy build beautiful, strong, light, fast and reliable boats. That was proven with our first yacht Satori– launched in 2001, so we decided to ask McConaghy to build us our second yacht ,Shearwater – a 57-foot performance cruiser. Shearwater is ALL carbon. McConaghy explored all areas to reduce weight, while allowing all the creature comforts.

I cannot oversell the pleasure we experienced building Shearwater with McConaghy. Eric and his team are quite extraordinary to work with, professional and talented – to observe what they can produce on the workshop floor was a wonder.”
