A perfect match
Local brokerage Ensign Yachts strikes a partnership with world-beating
Custom yacht builders McConaghy have appointed Ensign Ship Brokers as an ambassador for their products. The partnership will focus on the Mc38, Kerr40, and Kerr46 models.
Tony Ross, Managing Director of Ensign Yachts comments “It really is a partnership that makes sense. McConaghy are recognised as being number 1 in both custom and class racing yacht builds and coupled with ENSIGN’s market presence and expansion plans, this means big things for the future”.
The popularity of both the Mc38 and the Kerr40 indicates that buyers are interested in the concepts of one-design and rating rule racing. Ensign Yachts believe that McConaghy have got it right when designing a boat to one-design specifications whilst ensuring it is enjoyable to sail.
With the first Mc38 class regatta scheduled for October this year, this class is building with international interest what will surely be a strong fleet for the inaugural event.
Ross is sanguine about the possibilities. “It’s all very exciting really. The McConaghy product range is absolutely first class, both in design and build aspects. We look forward to a great partnership in building the strength of all of these models”.
