Emirates Team New Zealand need no explanations and are the design partners for the new AC40 One Design Yacht.
This yacht is a culmination of 6 years experience and development from the ETNZ design team and is a yacht that has been in consideration ever since the concept of a foiling monohull was born.
Designed and built as a test platform for the current group of AC teams, as well as being the selected boat for both the Women’s and Youth America’s cup in 2024, the AC40 is quite simply the fastest and most exciting 40ft yacht ever built and is now offered to private owners.
