Mcconaghy’s MC38 is yet another bit of proof that a beautiful design and good value don’t mean shit when it comes to selling boats. We raved about the super sportyacht when she first launched, but without an organized international marketing plan and the ridiculous ouster of Jono Morris, the quick one-design never caught on outside of Sydney. It is also worth mentioning that the idiots who now run Mcconaghy won’t even return our e-mails regarding advertising with us. A sad state of affairs of a once great builder
Fortunately for some of New South Wales’ best-known team owners and the hotshot pros and amateurs they fill them up with, most of the boats ended up racing in a nice little fleet in and around Sydney, and Bob Fowler caught this shot of one of them during the first MC38 Winter Series event in Pittwater over the weekend. Croaky took the win with Maserati.
A long, weird video from the regatta is over here.
