And that is why the rural Storm King Art Centre became the definitive Young America home port; a choice venue for an exceptional piece of art to rest. With the aim of repelling the 1995 America’s Cup challengers, three American teams dashed into the fray to take up the defence. But beyond the educational posting, the major axis of PACT 95 was to produce a credible and effective defender, capable of winning the ultimate race. Built in four and a half months at Goetz Custom Sailboats in Bristol, Rhode Island, the boat was christened with its emblematic mermaid painted on the side of the hull on January 7th, 1994.


On October 1994, in San Diego, USA-16 finished fourth out of the seven boats competing in the IACC World championships.
But in just eight days, the team succeeded in repairing the boat and were ready for the first day of racing. But during the defender finals, Stars & Stripes made good an unexpected comeback that was vintage Dennis Conner. But it was the opinion of nearly every observer that Stars & Stripes was the slowest and Young America the fastest of the three candidates. So Conner convinced PACT 95 to give his crew Young America to sail in the America’s Cup Match. First nicknamed Blonde Mermaid or Mermaid then, after January 4 1995 and after suffering damage from a tornado, Dorothy. In the first defender round (January 12 – January 20), Young America won five of six races.
It was an astonishing reversal of fortune as although Young America had the best overall won-loss record of 24 wins against 12 losses, it was eliminated.
The evidence for thiswas so strong that Team Dennis Conner requested the PACT 95 boat to race and defend the 1995 America’s Cup. On May 5th, when USA-36 was craned out of the water, its bulb touched the ground and came off the keel.
Both Young America and Spirit of Rhodes Island were shipped to Auckland for training on the America’s Cup course.
The Storm King Art Center of Mountainville, NY, buys Young America USA-36 (alias Mermaid, Blonde Mermaid or Dorothy). Sceptre wins the early matches, but once Sovereign is tuned, she starts to beat the older yacht, just. Two Australian brothers, Frank and John Livingstone, offer to build a second yacht, so the Royal Thames files a second challenge with the New York Yacht Club. Before the two yachts leave British waters, they compete in 19 trial races over May and June against Norsaga, Sceptre and Flica.
The yacht is based in Toulon on the Mediterranean, then in La Trinité in Brittany, France.
We have many to choose from, including Americas Cup Racing Yachts, plus other nautical decor ideas and gifts.
This is done by shaving off pieces of the wood with the modeling knife to form a point at one end of the model boat. Then use the staple gun to attach the other end of the string to the hull, this will create the boat’s rigging. A lot of plans and designs are displayed by its members that can be used to create your own model sailboat. For the San Diego Yacht Club, it was a question of defending the trophy re-won in Fremantle by Dennis Conner in 1987. The chief designer of Young America, Bruce Nelson, benefited from the contribution of the Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), and the sheer horsepower of their great Cray supercomputers.


Carrying the nicknames Mermaid or Blonde Mermaid, Young America now picked up yet another appellation from the tornado: Dorothy! At the conclusion of the first four Citizen Cup round robins and semi-finals, the PACT 95 team was at the top of the table, looking strong with a 21 - 7 record.
Rechristened as Spirit of Rhodes Island USA-39, it was used as a sparring partner to Young America. The boat is considered to the largest piece of art by Roy Lichtenstein and possibly his final one as Roy died in 1997. Limited Quantities Available!Production time of most custom ship and submarine models is 8-10 weeks. Dennis Conner went with Stars and Stripes USA-34; Bill Koch supported the unforgettable female team with his Mighty Mary USA-43. Other American industrial leaders, Boeing, Ford, and MIT among them, made contributions as well. But they were effectively prepared aboard Spirit of Unum USA-16, ex-Il Moro di Venezia IV by John Marshall, who used seven campaigns of experience to bolster his leadership. But just one week before racing, the PACT 95 syndicate had to deal with a calamity that could have ended the entire campaign before racing even began. This would not be the last ordeal the boat would experience…on March 12th, 1995, USA 36 was struck by a wave of more than three metres causing extensive damage to the entire structure. Team New Zealand (also known as Black Magic) NZL-32 skippered by Peter Blake and helmed by Russell Coutts crushed Team Dennis Conner and Young America, sweeping the America’s Cup Match by five races to none. The boat is certainly the only America’s Cup contender to end its life as an art masterpiece in a Museum. Even though the art of making one is not as popular as before, the information on methods of construction are still available and the tools and materials are very accessible.
