Спроектированная Вильямом Старлингом Бургессом и предоставленной Харольду Вандербилту для защиты Кубка Америки в 1934 году. В борьбе с яхтой Endeavour Кубок Америки был взят!

On May the 15th 1934, the William Starling Burgess Design J Class Rainbow was launched at the Herreshoff Yard in Bristol, Rhode Island, USA. She was built to defend the America’s Cup against “Endeavour” in 1934. The first 2 races were tough for Rainbow but the last 4 races she beat the Challenger Endeavour. Owner Vanderbilt laid Rainbow up in a dry dock and then refitted her. In 1937 she was sold to Chandler Hovey and contended for Defence of the Cup. Sadly for her, Ranger won and became the new defender for the next Cup. In 1940 Rainbow was sold for scrap.

Dykstra Naval Architects were chosen to give Rainbow a new life. A repeat client, the former owner of Windrose of Amsterdam, showed his trust in the Dykstra team to be the Naval Architects and designers for this new J Class yacht. The 46 meter schooner Windrose of Amsterdam set the Trans Atlantic schooner record at 10.5 days in 2005, the previous record of 12 days was set by Charley Barr with Atlantic in 1905.

The 40 metre J Class Rainbow is built in aluminum and designed according to the JCA (J Class Association) maximum performance rules. She launched in 2012.

After 78 years the famous J Class yacht ‘Rainbow’ sails again. This replica of the America’s Cup winner from 1934 was built by Holland Jachtbouw in Zaandam.

Rainbow was designed by Starling Burgess in 1933 and re-designed by Dykstra Naval Architects. She sails under the number JH-2.

Since her launch, Rainbow has won multiple awards, including Sailing Yacht of the Year (39m+) at the Superyacht Awards and the European Spirit of Tradition class at the inaugural 2013 Classic Boat Awards.

The award-winning J Class yacht Rainbow was launched at the Holland Jachtbouw shipyard in 2012. Based on William Starling Burgess’ lines of the original 1934 America’s Cup winner, this spectacular J features a classic interior true to the 1930s and a modern hybrid propulsion and power system specifically designed and engineered for Rainbow. Her luxury accommodation has not in any way compromised her performance, illustrated by her proven track record on the race course.

Designed by Dykstra Naval Architects, Rainbow is true to her original lines plans and built in aluminium to Lloyds Register and MCA Classification at the same time complying with the rules of the J Class Association. She carries carbon spars and EC6 rigging.

Her stunning finish is down to the Holland Jachtbouw craftsmen who worked tirelessly to provide exactly the correct finish both above and below decks, giving her a unique appeal. Unlike the original Rainbow, her interior is fully fitted out for elegant comfort and Dykstra partnered with deVosdeVries on the design, which features beautifully detailed profiles and panelling giving a 1930s Art Deco impression.

Компанию Dykstra Naval Architects попросили модернизировать 40-метровую Rainbow, близко придерживаясь оригинального плана, однако это уже была алюминиевая яхта с карбоновой мачтой, гиком и вооружением, а также с роскошным интерьером от deVosdeVries. Яхта была построена согласно регистру Ллойда и классификации MCA с той целью, чтобы ее владелец мог участвовать в гонках, а также использовать ее для чартера.

Классический вид этой яхты скрывает в себе применение самых современных технологий, используемых на суперяхтах сегодня. Ее гибридный двигатель и пропульсионная система, созданные верфью Holland Jachtbouw в сотрудничестве с Whisper Power, дают яхте способность вырабатывать большое количество энергии только лишь с помощью аккумулятора. Все это позволяет ей бесшумно ходить во время круизов и гоняться без использования генераторов.

Гоняясь под номером JH-2, она соревновалась летом 2012 года в регатах яхт J-класса в Фалмауте и Соленте против Velsheda, Ranger и Lionheart всего лишь 4 месяца спустя после спуска на воду!
