Commissioned by New York Yacht Club member Wilson Marshall, the Atlantic was launched in 1903.
Nevertheless, while Wilson Marshall wanted Atlantic to be the fastest schooner on the water, at the same time he felt there was no reason to compromise on comfort. During her first season Atlantic proved fast, winning both the Brenton Reef and the Cape May Cup hands down, but it was only in 1905 she made the headlines by winning the Kaiser's Cup, a Transatlantic race from Sandy Hook to the Lizard. Atlantic's story continued for another seventy-seven years with ownership passing through the likes of Cornelius van der Bilt and Gerald Lambert.
Although after World War II Atlantic would never sail again, she refused to give up her existence.

Intrepid was designed by Olin Stephens, and was built of double-planked mahogany on white oak frames. The Intrepid underwent a two-year structural restoration, the bustle area was reframed, the bottom replanked for several feet up from the keel, and the deck and deck beams were replaced.

The team was created by purchasing the assets of Paul Cayard’s AmericaOne syndicate which was the losing finalist against Luna Rossa in the 2000 Louis Vuitton Cup. BMW Oracle Racing was the Challenger-of-Record for the Louis Vuitton Cup 2007 which proceeded the 2007 America’s Cup which was held in Valencia, Spain. On May 20th, 2007 BMW Oracle Racing, fell to Luna Rosa Challenge for the fifth, and final time in the 2007 Louis Vuitton Cup Semi Finals. With the launching of their newest boat in January 2007, BMW Oracle Racing owns 4 IACC boats. She was used as a mother ship for other racing yachts like Vanity, for America's Cup defenders and the J-Class Yankee on her voyage to England. Somehow she was saved from the scrap yard on three different occasions, broke loose from her moorings, sailing back to sea without a man aboard and ended up used as a houseboat, a restaurant and a floating dock at a fuel station, until finally on 30th of January 1982, she was broken up at Newport Harbour, Virginia. Redesigned again, this time by her original designer Olin Stephens, the Intrepid was back again for a third time in 1974, captained by Gerry Driscoll.
Today the Intrepid is available for charter out of Newport, Rhode Island along with fellow America's Cup winners Freedom and Weatherly. The syndicate is backed primarily by Larry Ellison, who made his billions from Oracle’s database software. The syndicate got off to a rocky start with changes in the skipper position, going through Cayard, Chris Dickson and Peter Holmberg.
To date July 26, 2007 that challenge has not be accepted, and the Golden Gate Yacht has filed suit because of it. From the moment Atlantic went to sea, it was clear that she was an exceptionally fast and beautiful schooner. Fitted out with the finest mahogany panelling, she had two steam driven generators powering up the electric lights, refrigerators and a large galley. The legendary Captain Charlie Barr, who had already successfully defended the America's Cup three times, was hired to skipper Atlantic. Intrepid came within one race of becoming the only three time America's Cup defender in history, but lost the final race of the defender trials to the Courageous, which would go on to win the Cup that year with Ted Hood at the helm.


The team name was revised in August 2004 to Oracle BMW Racing a reflection of the German company's initial role within the team and subsequently revised again to BMW Oracle Racing to reflect increased involvement from BMW. BMW Oracle Racing and Larry Ellison have hired Russell Coutts to be the CEO of the 33rd America's Cup campaign. When a yacht in 1903 hits twenty knots during her sea trials, she is a promising yacht, but even then nobody could imagine two years later this yacht would set a record that would stand unmatched for almost a century.
Charlie Barr's determination to win was as legendary as his skills for driving the largest of yachts to the very limit. This new general underbody type, with relatively minor refinements, was used on every subsequent Cup boat until the 12-meter Australia II's winged keel of 1983.
Francis Yacht Club was unwilling to give Ellison the free hand he wanted in running the challenge for the 2003 America’s Cup, so Ellison took his money down the road to the Golden Gate Yacht Club. While this boat was initially believed to have a tandem keel, it is now accepted that the boat uses a conventional single strut keel.

She had two double and three single staterooms, a lobby, a large full beam saloon, a dining room, a chart & gunroom, three large bathrooms and in the deckhouse there was a comfortable observation room.
Above decks, Intrepid featured a very low boom, made possible by locating the winches below decks. She had retractable chimneys, so while under sail the below deck steam heating, lighting and refrigerating systems could keep running. Atlantic's fo'c'sle accommodated her thirty-nine strong crew and officers, who would live aboard throughout the year. Uncountable attempts were made to break this record but it would hold firm until 1998, the longest standing speed record in the history of yachting.
