The teams competing in the 35th America’s Cup will race in the new America’s Cup Class boats. The 15-metre foiling catamarans are the fastest boats to ever be sailed in the competition, reaching up to 50-knots on the water.
Each team must design and build its own America’s Cup Class boat. These boats are built to a design rule, but that rule allows designers and engineers to express their creativity in their designs. All racing in 2017, from the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Qualifiers to the America’s Cup Match, presented by Louis Vuitton, will be match racing in ACC boats.
