In St. Maarten, our classic sailing thoroughbreds, nearly seventy feet long with masts the height of an eight-story building, take you on a duel of a lifetime for that split-second advantage and the glory of being the first to cross the finish line!
12 Metre Class race yachts were built between 1907 (when the class was defined) and 1987 when the last America’s Cup was sailed on this specification. Approximately 170 12 Metre Class vessels were built, of which only approximately 100 of exist in the world today. We are lucky enough to count four of the beautiful 1987 “great 12’s” as our fleet, including Stars and Stripes (US-55) – considered among the most famous sailing vessels in the history of the America’s Cup.
Our America’s Cup race yachts represent the zenith of the 12 Metre marquee. They are maintained in pristine condition and kept in authentic race format, with only minor modifications to ensure guest safety. Learn more below.
