Race Winning Builds

From Fastnet record breakers to America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race contenders, the McConaghy name is synonymous with race-winning, high-performance regatta champions and competitors.

With a fleet of over 150 yachts of 30ft and above, designed by the world’s leading designers, our reputation and experience building One Design fleets for the Olympics, J-70’s for J-Boats in Asia, and our own MC31 and MC38 One Design yachts is second to none.

The Rolex Sydney Hobart Race is one of the largest and most iconic events in sailing.  McConaghy has always had strong connections with the race, whether in building these ocean-going race yachts or providing last minute optimisations and alterations leading up to the Boxing Day start. Over the years McConaghy-built boats have had some extremely impressive results and, since 1983, there have been 64 podium finishes.

McConaghy build composite yachts for the world’s toughest conditions and most discerning customers.  McConaghy is the builder of choice for competitive sailors all around the world.
