America's Cup: Images of AC75 surrogate construction and roll-out

by Sail-World.com/NZ 16 Dec 2018 16:20 PST

The New York Yacht Club's entry in the 2021 America's Cup, American Magic was the first to launch a full-size surrogate yacht (12metre overall or 38ft).

Originally code-named "The Mule" - we guess as the team's work-horse - now rebadged as the more appropriate AM38, American Magic has released some images of the 38fter under construction. (See the second gallery for sailing shots)
