Engineering & Design

Yacht building involves many details. It's obvious that those you see are important in your decision to buy. What you don't see, however, affects the long-term enjoyment of your investment. At McKinna Yachts, the objective is not to build boats, but to build better boats, made to mega yacht standards, both from a substance and style standpoint. McKinna's engineering and design set new standards for boats in this class. For example, take the basic construction.

Where many boat builders are satisfied with using plywood, we go a step further and use Nidacore as the primary material for the sloes and bulkheads. Nidacore, a high-tech composite, is lighter and stronger. It may be more expensive, but it allows us to take advantage of the reduction in weight to pass along fuel savings to you. Less weight requires less engine horsepower. Also, because the size of the engine is reduced, it changes hull design parameters, thereby improving speed and performance. What's more, Nidacore has excellent sound absorption properties which allows them to run very quietly. Efficiency is the key design parameter in a McKinna hull.

The construction methods we use are chosen to give maximum strength and minimum weight to achieve optimum efficiency. They are proven techniques using the best resins and composites, not experimental processes that may affect reliability. It's the proper blend of technology that results in safety and performance. The interior workmanship of a McKinna yacht is a superb melding of wood and fabric to achieve a rich, inviting feel. Shapes and contours soften the look. There is a mood inducing sensuality.

We utilize cutting edge technology in applications where it will best benefit the performance, operation, and most importantly, the safety of our boats. Irradiated thermoset boat cable is a recent innovation of the Berkshire Electric Cable Company. It has a number of advantages in marine applications, but most importantly, it dramatically reduces the chanc·e of an electrical fire onboard. When you look at a McKinna Yacht, look very closely. There's no cookie-cutter construction here. There's attention to detail, and attention to you. See how much better a luxury yacht can be.

Howard Apollonio &. Espinosa

The design of the new McKinna Motoryachts has been an evolutionary process combining the talents of two renowned naval architects, Howard Apollonio and Juan Carlos Espinosa, plus the expertise of experienced McKinna personnel. Howard Apollonio Hull Design His firm Apollonio Naval Architecture offers leading-edge yacht and commercial craft design, engineering, styling, and space planning for a wide range of diverse and advanced craft, including modern and traditional monohulls, catamarans, trimarans, SWATHs, and hydrofoils. They are all versatile and flexible specialists in hull form, ride comfort, propulsion, structure, and noise control.

Apollonio has been a Licensed Professional Engineer (Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering) since 1977, and is a 1969 graduate of the University of Michigan (NA & ME). He is a native of Maine, where he had designed and built three boats by the age of 17, then subsequently worked as a professional boat builder before attending college. His 35-year professional career has included twelve years with propulsion and builders of advanced commercial and military craft. He has spent 23 years running his own firm, which has primarily focused on the design and engineering of motoryachts of all types.

His firm's yachts have been built in the U.S., Canada, Holland, Taiwan, and China, by such firms as Christensen, Westport, Diaship/Heesen, West Bay/SonShip, Queenship/Caribe, McKinna, Heisley, PAMA, Rayburn, and Canoe Cove among others. Design projects have included custom and production motor yachts from 42'-160', built in Europe, Asia, and North America; fast passenger, fire, fishing, and military vessels from 17' to 170'; and consulting on sailing and fishing vessels from 32' to 11 0'. Particular emphasis is given to custom yachts, high-speed vessels, including SWATHs (submerged hull catamarans) based on their very successful 87-footer. His designs are highly regarded worldwide for their accomplishments in vessel performance, propulsion, arrangement, and styling.

Apollonio vessels operate as a professional engineering entity, able to meet the most stringent requirements for safety and seaworthiness, as well as structural and mechanical integrity. At the same time, Apollonio insists on producing vessels that are very good looking, well proportioned, and of long-·lasting style. They all incorporate important human engineering factors that make each boat a pleasure to be on, easy to move about and featuring nice aspects of light and visibility. Because Apollonio was an artist before becoming an engineer, great versatility is offered in themes and appearance. He deals primarily in custom projects that are tailored exactly for each owner, preferring to meet the client's needs without trying to sell him something that is not right for him.

Exterior Styling and Interior Layout

Juan Carlos Espinosa is a licensed, registered Architect in both the states of Florida and Illinois. He received his Bachelor of Architecture and Urban Planning degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1985. Mr. Espinosa was first exposed to the field of yacht design while employed by a Chicago firm commissioned to design what would be, in 1985, the largest aluminum mega-yacht in the United States. Ever since, JC, as Mr. Espinosa is known in the industry, has dedicated his efforts exclusively to the exterior and interior styling of the custom yacht and production boat industries.

The firm's design work is published regularly by the most prominent publications in the field. McKinna Yachts and JC Espinosa began collaborating back in 1997 when McKinna Yachts decided to give their whole line of production yachts a "fresh start". To that effect, Espinosa provided a new modern-elegant look that was followed by a complete re-engineering of the product line including: systems, materials, workmanship and above all the implementation of stringent quality control to guarantee the complete success of the "new line" The directive to JC was simple, to provide a modern-stylish exterior design that would house a functional and open arrangement. Furthermore, the interiors should sport finely detailed joinerwork, exotic wood veneers, leathers, stones and appointments usually found on much larger and more expensive yachts.

Given JC's experience in the megayacht field, the new McKinna yachts reflect the elegance and attention to detail that is commonly found in "megayachts" such as those he has designed in the past. McKinna and Espinosa are producing new models on an ongoing basis and look forward to producing the best value yachts in the market place.
