  1. McConaghy Boats launch 42.5-meter "Adastra" Trimaran

    During April, McConaghy Boats launched the radical-looking "Adastra", a 42.5-meter long Trimaran. She was built at McConaghy Boats Zhuhai Facility, China for a Hong Kong client for long range ocean voyaging. Designed by John Shuttleworth Design. 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.

    Adastra's 16-meter 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. 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-meter tender and directly below is a garage which can store a 3.1-meter tender.

    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 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.
