Audi MedCup 2011 - It was all hands on deck at McConaghy Boats in Sydney when they were commissioned to build the brand new TP 52 for Jochen Schümann and Stephane Kandler’s All4One syndicate. Powered by the sponsorship from Audi this latest yacht to be built will compete in the 2011 Audi MedCup.

The yacht was masterly crafted by McConaghy Boats in record time taking an amazing 72 days to build! The order for the Rolf Vrolijk designed yacht was received in late November 2010.

Hull construction begun on January 5th and the yacht was finished on the 8th March 2011.

Jochen Schümann commented overnight: 'We are very proud of the excellent work and coordinated effort of the build team at McConaghy. They have proven that it has been the right decision for a European team to build their new Race boat down under.'

Boat Captain, Paolo Bassani commented whilst observing his brand new craft leaving the McConaghy facility, 'There has been a lot of effort that has gone into this yacht. It has been an incredible experience working closely with McConaghy’s; they have a great team of skilled craftsmen that worked very hard and long hours to finish this boat in time. Nothing has been compromised in the build, under enormous time constraints; they have done a superior job. We believe it will be a great boat, now it is up to us as a sailing team to make it fast on the race course!'

The normal build time for such a race boat is more like 5-6 months. General Manager of McConaghy’s Richard Stanning said, 'It has been a very concerted effort by all of us here, it is a great achievement to build a boat in this amount time and still maintain our high standards that will be required for a race boat of this caliber. That only occurs when you have a good supply of design drawings and a capable team to implement it'.

McConaghy’s Managing Director, Jono Morris added, 'The sailing team, design team and build team have done a remarkable job on this project, it’s a credit to everyone involved. We are looking forward to following the success of the Audi all4One team in the Audi MedCup over the next 3 seasons.'

The clock is still ticking as the first race of the Audi MedCup starts on May 11th in Cascais, Portugal.

The sleek red hull, with the Audi logo emblazoned down the topsides, was carefully loaded onto a road transporter and then left in the early hours of the morning through Sydney to Port Botany, where it will be shipped to Valencia, Spain, for commissioning.
