The main deck is one huge interconnected area of around 40 square metres. The saloon extends right back to the hydraulic swimming platform aft (an option: where your tender goes when you are under way) and folding doors at the rear of the saloon gives this yacht a Manhattan Apartment feel.

All the sailing is done on the flybridge which you access via steps from the back of the saloon. The lines feed back to the twin helms which have impressive views forward and aft.

The coachroof covers the whole of the interior, so there is plenty of space for solar panels and there is a big skylight running the length of the roof creating a light interior with great visibility of the sails from inside.

The MC53 comes fully loaded with a rotating carbon rig, a self tacking jib and plenty of head sail options to hook onto the end of the longeron, like an overlapping genoa, code zero and gennaker. The chined hulls set this boat up for speed through the water while giving you plenty of space above it. You´ll also notice that the MC53 does not have a forward crossbeam. With its carbon construction providing the structural rigidity, there is no need for one.


The galley area is enormous and is centred around a big island. Opposite is a saloon chill out area with a big L shaped sofa around a coffee table. Forward in the saloon is another (smaller) sofa and a forward facing nav station on the port side. Electric sliding windows open the whole area up aft to the breeze. The whole feel is light and area with a modern stylish design.

The sofa to starboard and the table will extend to accommodate up to 8: you can convert it into a lounging space by dropping the table and filling in with the cushion.


With an carbon mast with a single spreader, and a giant square top mainsail, the MC53 certainly looks like she moves. She will consistently sail at 75 to 100% true wind speed, so yes she moves alright. Polars from the manufacturer point to speeds of over 10 knots in 25 knots of wind at 30° off true. Come off the wind onto a broad reach and she´ll manage 21 knots-plus if handled well. Performance on a close reach is helped by those 3.5m hydraulic centreboards that swing into the hulls: a cleverly engineered solution to leeway.

The MC53 comes equiped with a square-top 104 m2 mainsail and a 50 m2 self-tacking jib. With Ker’s sculpted hulls and all that carbon, this translates into serious speed on the water. Owners have reported that this flybridge-equipped luxury cruiser exceeds true wind speed from time to time.

The designers have set a new design benchmark in luxury cruising with this catamaran: it´s a cleverly designed yacht.
