Hong Kong & Monaco : A model vessel for modern times

Friday, 20 August 2010


Check out the scale model for the MCC 38m Transocean Explorer, at the Monaco Yacht Show.

MCC - Maritime Concept and Construction (Hong Kong) Ltd. will once again be present at the Monaco Yacht Show. Visit them at the same location as last year in Tent Parvis Piscine, stand QP 55.  At the Fort Lauderdale International Yacht Show you can visit them on Marco Polo where they will be exhibiting together with Cheoy Lee.

With Mazu, the 46-meter sister ship to Marco Polo nearing completion and on schedule for an end of the year launch, MCC is now turning its focus on its new MCC 38m Transocean Explorer.  Conceived by in-house naval architect Kasia Milewska, this novel design expands upon the signature MCC theme of fuel efficiency. Taking its cue from the revolutionary Marco Polo series, this vessel will have the most economic single screw propulsion with electrically driven Schottel pump jets on the market. The range is a remarkable 5300nm at 11 knots using only 80 liters per hour. Additionally, in keeping with the growing trend for greener energy, the MCC 38 will forgo teak decks employing instead environmentally sound sustainable wood. Furthermore, the cap rails on the bulwarks will be composite rather than teak. The interior décor while infinitely flexible can be fitted with eco-friendly materials and textiles, such as bamboo, mango wood and recycled glass. Designer Milewska feels the inside should reflect the outside in terms of spirit and has sourced a number of interesting options for flooring, wall covering, tiles, countertops, fixtures, and fabrics.

The MCC 38, built of sturdy steel with a composite superstructure, offers a lot more volume than similar sized yachts. Despite her modest length over all, the 38-meter boasts generous accommodations for eight guests plus captain and seven crewmembers. While the master and VIP staterooms are practically equal in terms of luxury, at this stage, the owner can opt to have the master suite on the upper deck and the VIP and captains cabin on the main deck, or have both suites on the main deck. The other guest and crew cabins and galley are planned to be on the lower deck. Remarkably for her size, there is an elevator accessing all deck levels from lower deck to the sundeck.

This compact mini superyacht model will be on hand at the stand at the Monaco Yacht Show. The time is right and the price is right. Stop by to meet the MCC team and check out the new 38m Transocean Explorer.

MCC will also for the first time at the Monaco Yacht Show present their new project 48m Transocean Explorer.
