Hull Design | Speed | Power | Performance
While McKinna Luxury Yachts are perfectly at home cruising the inland waterways, it is offshore where they really hit their stride. That is where McKinna’s unique design and engineering shine. Uncanny balance. An unbelievable steadiness of ride. Incredible response. McKinna Luxury Yachts run level and sure-footed in demanding seas and never cease to impress as they make their way into port.
At McKinna Yachts, the objective is not just to build luxurious yachts, but to build better (THE BEST OF ALL) yachts. Superiority rules in all aspects of building a McKinna Yacht.
We use high-tech composites as the primary construction material for the hull, soles and bulkheads providing additional strength and sound absorption while reducing weight and offering fuel saving advantages. Efficiency and excellence are key to the design of a McKinna hull.
We utilize cutting edge technology in applications essential to performance, operation, and safety. Propeller pockets reduce the shaft angle and provide fluid power transfer while reducing the draft.
Attention to interior ergonomics and the use of an expanded beam create volume and open layouts usually found on much larger vessels. In every way, art and science collaborate on the new “experience tested” hulls, designs, and tooling.
