In 1981 McMullen & Wing presented the first New Zealand racing maxi yacht Ceramco. She was designed specifically for Sir Peter Blake's (then still Peter Blake) participation in a round-the-world race. This boat brought the shipyard worldwide fame, marking the beginning of many years of collaboration between Blake and the shipbuilder.

In 1987 the company tried a new material, fiberglass, and built a yacht Kiwi Magic to participate in the America«'s Cup. Then the New Zealanders did not win, but were able to pass on her to the final.
