VIM, this famous America's Cup vessel, was commissioned by Harold S. Vanderbilt in 1938 and designed by Olin Stephens.She was built by Henry B Nevins in City Island, NY
Probably the most innovative 12 meter built prior to WW 11 and the first 12 meter equipped with rod rigging and aluminum spars.
Even though she was built as an all out race horse, VIM provides a light and airy, open interior in light colored wood and white panels.
VIM was to remain the standard by which all other 12 meters would be measured for the next twenty years.
Completely refitted and restored with no budget limits in 2003, she is in immaculate condition and still racing in the classic yacht regattas.
