The race boats of the St.Maarten 12 Metre Challenge are exclusively boats that were designed and built for the last America’s Cup using 12 Metre Yachts, the 1987 America’s Cup in Fremantle, Australia. In the knowledge that the winds in Fremantle would be far stronger than previous America’s Cups, the 1987 boats were designed and built larger, more powerful and stronger than ever before. These are the last of the legendary “12’s” and represent the zenith of the marque. Maintained in pristine condition, and kept very authentic, the yachts have only been modified to improve guest safety.
