The MC63P is a foil assisted power catamaran, the result of an enquiry by renowned Kiwi Yachtsman Grant Dalton.
In addition to continuing our normal MC Multihulls' features and styling, there were bespoke requirements including:
- 1600 miles Range at a 20kts cruising speed
- A 19m squared indoor gym
- 32kts top speed
- An extensive collection of toys stored on the flybridge, including two motorbikes, a foiling catamaran dinghy and a rowing skiff
- Capacity for a 6.5m Amphibious RIB
After extensive design loops and CFD analysis, we ended up with the foil assisted MC63P hullform .
The hydrofoil allows the hull to lift up and use the lower chine, considerably reducing effective wetted area and drag,
while also improving seakeeping behaviour. Interceptors at the transom provide control over the trim angle.
Careful shaping of the forward bridge deck creates the large gym volume yet keeps it from slamming in a seaway.
The Key Design Features:
- Large Interior Saloon: As with her sisters in the MC Multihulls range, the large interior saloon space can effectively become an outdoor space, due to huge
sliding side windows and bi-fold aft doors
- Light Weight: Considerable weight has been saved through advanced engineering and the use of carbon fibre composites,
substantially improving performance at higher speeds.
- Foil Assisted: A Carbon fibre hydrofoil, carrying up to half the weight of the boat.
- Semi-Custom Layout: Some owners might prefer to use the gym as a large master cabin, potentially using the full width of the yacht, others may use it for multiple
bunk rooms, or a generous office space for two.
