This MC31 is hull #5, of course built by world renowned McConaghy Boats.

An easy life over the past couple of seasons, means she is in tip top condition and ready to race for the 2019 season.
Much more of a "boat" then her rivals at this size and the performance to back up the durability, make her a huge amount of fun.
A great toy for the HP30 class perhaps?
