New McConaghy 38 will feature Tacktick performance electronics McConaghy Yachts
The new McConaghy 38 performance racing yacht is to fit Tacktick’s wireless Maxi electronics system as standard.

The new light displacement yacht will fit the full Tacktick Maxi performance electronics system including 3 super large Maxi wireless mast displays as well as Remote Display unit.


Tacktick’s Maxi range of super-large wireless masthead displays are designed specifically for performance yachts and offer an impressive array of innovative racing features including a start line function to indicate whether to speed up or slow down when approaching the start line. The displays use high contrast LCD screens with super-large digits to give maximum clarity. With no wires to run through the boat or up the mast, and super-thin, lightweight displays, Tacktick’s instruments offer the most weight efficient package for race boat owners. The displays offer reliability as well as sophisticated functions and full interface possibilities.

Rob Brown, General Manager at McConaghy commented, 'We are excited by this new one design yacht which is a combination of unique design and state of the art building techniques. It utilises the best materials and equipment including a standard fit out of Tacktick wireless instruments. We picked Tacktick because of their performance, affordability, and more than anything, they are functional.'

Tacktick’s range of wireless marine electronics are distributed in Australia through Coursemaster Autopilots. www.coursemaster.com
