McConaghy are consistently on the forefront of innovation and technology in the yachting world so when we were presented the opportunity to work with a brand such as Infiniti Yachts the collaboration is a no brainer. The Infiniti range all push the evolution in yacht racing performance by harnessing DSS foils in parallel with cutting edge hull lines creating a super light and strong yacht that has distinct righting moment and power advantages. With McConaghy’s track record in yacht construction the end product will turn heads in speed and performance.
The Infiniti 52 is the first racing yacht to be designed, engineered and built to take full advantage of Doyle Sails’ Cableless technology. Built around a highly efficient transverse DSS foil, the Infiniti 52 provides proven performance without the risk and cost of more complex class-driven foil solutions. The DSS foil provides the Infiniti 52 significant righting moment allowing the Infiniti 52 to be sailed with a smaller crew, sometimes half the number of a comparable yacht, increasing competitive efficiencies.
The 52ft yacht has been proven to be an ideal size, performing successfully at both inshore racing and coastal/offshore racing. It is large enough to sail comfortably for an overnight, but light enough to exhilarate and excite.
The Infiniti 52 has been designed and engineered to deliver next level offshore racing performance. An ergonomic deck, complete with Harken air winches and deck gear is complemented by a refined interior, making oceanic and offshore racing an experience to be enjoyed rather than endured. With a strong emphasis on watertight and reliable systems, comfortably sized bunks for off watch hours, and impeccable ergonomics, the Infiniti sets a new offshore standard in the 52 foot range.
The Infiniti 52 provides owners with a highly competitive and comfortable yacht that can raced without a full professional crew of 13-15.
