Built by Goudy & Stephens of Boothbay, Maine it is the first replica of the most famous yacht of the world ,the legendary America  of 1851 . It was  built for Rudolph J.Schaefer Jr. head of Schaefer Brewing .  

Her hull design is the original George Steers plan and all the drawings of the re-creation are of Sparkman & Stephens : design n° 1897

Last refit 1996 Flag: Bermuda

America  needs  a thorough restoration 

HISTORY :

Olin Stephens, one of the yachting world’s foremost designers, and Everett Morris, a prominent sailing historian met with R. Schaefer at NY Yacht Club in winter 1966 and gave birth to the idea, deciding that the yacht not only would  have the same design and specifications of the “America”,but it would be constructed by using many of the original materials and tools   that existed at that time. Of course, below deck would be a slightly different story, engine,  systems  and the usual 20th century comforts and conveniences.

 This replica was launched on the 3rd of May 1967, 116 years to the day after the original was launched. 

Attention:  This boat should not be confused with the replica that was built and launched in 1995 by Scarano Boatbuilding of Albany, NY for Ray Giovanni and was operated by him for commercial events until his death. The replicas had several modifications from the original design including widening the beam by 4 feet to accommodate interior layouts. The original design had only one  skylight so three were added to bring light into the interior of the yacht. A third replica was built in Varna, Bulgaria in 2005. Christened Skythia, the boat's home port today is Rostock,Germany
