Wild Oats XI

Wild Oats XI was built by McConaghy Boats in 2005 at their Mona Vale Facility, launched in December in readiness for the Rolex Sydney to Hobart the then, 98ft Maxi Yacht was built in only 9 months for winemake Robert Oatley.

Designed by Reichel Pugh, the Carbon/Nomex composite hull has a distinctively narrow beam at only 5.1 metres (17ft). She originally featured canting ballast twin foils which allowed her to carry a massive sail area without compromising on stability. Since her launch she has been constantly modified with a significant involvement from McConaghy Boats, now known in the industry as the "Swiss Army Knife".

Her debut in the 2005 Rolex Sydney Hobart was a momentous occasion, leaving Sydney Heads she led the whole way south to arrive in record time, breaking the race record. Not only taking home Line Honours and Race Record, Wild Oats won Overall IRC, the first boat to win the "Triple Crown" achievement since the inaugural race in 1945.

Wild Oats affinity with the Rolex Sydney Hobart has continued, in 2012, they broke the record which they set in 2005 by 16 minutes. In 2013 Wild Oats notably achieved their 7th Line Honour Victories, matching the race record for the feat

Wild Oats also holds the following Race Records:
CYCA’s Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race (22hrs, 3mins, 46secs, set in 2012) CYCA’s Cabbage Tree Island Race (12hrs, 15mins, 55secs, set in 2012)

Adastra is the 140foot (42.5m) Trimaran recently lanched in China, and was built at McConaghy Boats Zhuhai Facility, China for a Hong Kong client for long range ocean voyaging. Designed by John Shuttleworth Design.

“Adastra” is the result careful design, planning and discussion with the owners, to build a yacht that meets the needs of a very experienced ocean voyaging couple and their family, and to provide the level of comfort and style that would be expected in a yacht of this class and size. No effort has been spared in the challenge to produce a beautiful yacht that will have low fuel consumption and yet provide excellent sea keeping qualities and luxurious accommodation. “Adastra” takes the power trimaran concept further than has ever been attempted before, previous vessels like “Earthrace” and “Cable and Wireless” were stripped out record breaking machines. The challenge of turning this concept into a viable luxury yacht has led us to further research and to develop new thinking on stability and comfort at sea for this type of craft.  Extensive tank testing and radio controlled model tests in waves have been carried out to analyze stability and performance. Outrigger height has been optimized for ease of motion at sea, and a new outrigger shape has been developed to increase stability in waves. We have undertaken a state of the art structural analysis of all the major components in the yacht in order to achieve the light weight required for very low fuel consumption.  All this has resulted in the exceptional vessel that was recently launched by McConaghy boats in Zhuhai, China.

Adastra's 16 metre beam creates a spacious saloon area on the main deck which offers superb views through a panoramic window and accommodates a lounge area, dining table, and navigation station.  A forward facing door through the saloon window gives easy access to a large sunbed on the foredeck. The aft deck has a sofa and bar area to port and a dining area to starboard, further aft of this there is space for a 4.9 metre tender and directly below is a garage which can store a 3.1 metre tender.  The garage door has been designed to fold out and create a large dive platform.  Extra space has been created below deck by slightly flaring the central hull just above the waterline. This area has been split into two sections with a full-width master cabin located aft with access from the deck saloon, and two further guest cabins, accommodation for the crew, and the galley located forward of the engine compartment.  Adastra offers comfortable accommodation for nine guests and up to six crew members.  The main helm station, which has seating for two, is positioned in a raised pilot house situated between the aft deck and the saloon area and forms part of the cross beam structure.

The vessel has a fully automated fuel management system which includes an Alfa Laval system for cleaning the fuel.

The anchoring system is unique with 3 anchors all driven by carbon fibre drum winches run by hydraulics.  The primary anchor is a custom 130kg Bruce style anchor that deploys out of the starboard wing.  The bow anchor is 80kg and deploys out of the bow with a carbon fibre arm.  The third anchor is 60kg which deploys out of the port wing and will be used as a stern anchor.

The Superstructure is carbon fibre with Nomex honeycomb core, the hull is Glass/Kevlar foam sandwich and the interior is light weight oak cabinetry using honeycomb panels.  To help reduce weight, virtually every aspect of the boat is custom built. This includes carbon fibre hatches, portlights, ladders and even hinges, which are all built specifically for the vessel.

Steering Wheels:

McConaghy Carbon Fibre Performance Wheels fit most major pedestal brands and have always been the only choice for many pro-sailors. It is little wonder then, that seven out of eight yachts in the 2011-2012 Volvo Ocean Race featured McConaghy steering wheels and systems. Our wheels will not only offer some serious performance benefits to skippers on a lot of production boats, they really are a great looking piece of kit both out on the course and moored to the quay.

Light weight, ergonomically designed and warm to the touch McConaghy Carbon Fibre Steering Wheels reduce flywheel effect and put skippers back in touch with their rudder providing unprecedented rudder feedback and control.
