MCC’s new 38m ‘Transocean Explorer’...

Design

Just like its first China-built 45m Marco Polo that launch in '07, this one’s a single screw motoryacht with electric Schottel azimuthing thrusters bow and stern to ‘get you home’.

MARCH 2010

Honk Kong-based MCC (Maritme Concept and Construction) launch its original Ron Holland-drawn steel/ali 45m (148ft) Marco Polo was highly economical, not only in terms of build price, but also in operation. Now the 38m − the first MCC designed by new in-house creative Kasia Milewska − goes even further; her range is a whopping 5,300nm at 11 knots at which she will only consume 80 litres/hour.
The main engine is a CAT C32 and her generators are Northern Lights.
She has many large-yacht features. The galley is below on the crew deck and there are two guest cabins, owner and VIP, to be found on the main deck; then there are two more below.
Also extremely rare on a yacht of this size is the elevator that connects lower deck to sundeck and serving all decks between.
For the first time on an MCC yacht he will tread upon kebony wood decks. Kebony is a wood impregnated and heat treated to offer teak performance and looks, yet using an environmentally sound, sustainable timber. The bulwarks are topped with composite rather than teak handrails.
MCC also has a 33m (108ft), 46m (151ft) and 60m (197ft) developments to the theme.
