McConaghy focuses on superyacht sector

Australian composite yacht builder McConaghy is establishing an office in New Zealand to support an increased focus on the superyacht sector.

McConaghy has previously been involved in high profile superyacht projects such as the award-winning 42m trimaran ‘Adastra’, built at McConaghy's yard in China, and Mike Slade’s 30m racing yacht ‘Leopard 3’.

The company now wants to build on this experience and actively market itself as a builder of high quality performance-focused carbon fibre composite superyachts, to complement its ongoing work in the sub-30 m sector.

Part of this new strategy includes the setting up of a New Zealand office. This will be run by experienced superyacht personnel Rodney Martin and Paul Vivian, both formerly of Fitzroy Yachts, who will be joined by 6-8 design and engineering staff. 

The New Zealand team’s focus will be on marketing the company within the superyacht sector and working on design programmes for the McConaghy Group.
