“The AC40 is the culmination of 6 years’ experience and effort by the Emirates Team New Zealand design team since we first came up with the concept of a foiling monohull. The AC40 is particularly satisfying for us to see come to fruition, as this class is designed to be raced by AC teams and the private market. The AC40 will also be the perfect class for the Youth and Women’s AC as it brings performance and sailability. I truly believe the private market will love this boat, giving the owner the incredible sense of efficiency that foiling brings. You just need three other great sailors onboard and you can start sending it!
The AC40 class will have amazing racing for the private owners. There is Strong interest in the AC40 and prospective owners are planning a stand-alone circuit. We care fully supportive of this, and we will work with owners and McConaghy to achieve this goal.”
