McConaghy’s 'Singularity'...

Recent Launches

She’s a 24m canting-keel sloop required to win on the maxi circuit, as well as cruise comfortably.

JUNE 2010

Australian performance yacht builder McConaghy of Sydney, New South Wales, recently launched the 24m Lutra 80 Singularity.
She was drawn by Adrian Konynendyk of Lutra Yacht Design to win on the race course and cruise comfortably. Critical to that brief was her interior scheme, which was created by Design Unlimited to a Scandinavian/teak theme, plus carbonfibre details such as heads and shower trays etc. The interior had to adhere to strict weight limits in order not to compromise racing performance. She still includes the essential big yacht amenities – AC, refrigeration, proper mattresses etc. But plenty of weight was saved. For instance, most of the interior makes use of Nomex-cored panels, the Corian used for work surfaces in just 6mm thick instead of 12mm. And there is no sound insulation anywhere.
She launched a few months ago and just recently arrived in Europe for the season.
