Malcolm McKeon new 75 flybridge

Malcolm McKeon has managed to slot a comfortable fly into his new 72.5-metre sloop without compromising its slender lines and chic profile.

He did slyly too, positioning the fly much further aft than is normally the case and extending it to cover the cockpit. He also gave the deckhouse a curved sweep of glass forward to soften it.   The 75 flybridge even has fold-down bulwarks on either side of the cockpit which create large balconies and a completely open arrangement at anchor.

The same applies to the beach club which opens out to form a water-skimming platform. The tender well converts to a large foredeck exercise pool, integrated with a recessed seating area. A lifting keel, square top main sail and a jib and genoa locker on the deck all hint at the fact that the sloop does not skimp in the performance stakes either.
