Choose from two engine options
Is it possible to look backward and forward at the same time? MCC’s newest design does just that. “I took my inspiration from the ships that were built early in the last century, [their] no nonsense efficiency [and] the shape of the bow,” says naval architect Kasia Milewska. And that inspiration is obvious in the profile of the 150' (46m) yacht. Milewska, naval architect of the recently launched Mazu, is a staunch advocate of single-engine vessels. Yet, while it has more than proven its reliability and efficiency in commercial shipping—to say nothing of MCC’s first build, the green-hulled Marco Polo series—it’s a setup the yachting set still seems reluctant to embrace. So MCC, which builds its vessels at the Cheoy Lee shipyard, has developed the concept for both conventional twin engines coupled to twin props or the more fuel-efficient single-prop design. The new 46m has a maximum speed of 16 knots, but is designed for long-range cruising at 14 knots. The first design in the Neo-Classic series will accommodate 10 guests in luxurious staterooms and will also include a sun deck with a Jacuzzi, sun pads and a bar, a foredeck garage accessed by a portside shell door and expansive outdoor living space. Another really nice feature of this new design is that it allows for versatile use of space on the main deck. While most yachts have a formal dining room, few use them. So the main deck can be configured for dining or as a salon.
