Introducing the new AC40
Your Opportunity to Fly
In conjunction with Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) and McConaghy Boats, the new AC40 is now available to buy from Ancasta Race Boats.
A scaled-down version of the AC75, the AC40 gives private owners access to the latest America’s Cup technology and performance for the first time in sailing history as a new One Design circuit is born.
Designed and built as a test platform for America’s Cup teams and the boat of choice for the Women’s and Youth America’s cup in 2024, the AC40 is the fastest 40ft sailing monohull yacht ever built.
Presented by Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) and McConaghy Boats, it is the culmination of six years of experience and development from the ETNZ design team. Ancasta has a long-term relationship with McConaghy Boats, selling their innovative race boats and multihulls for over 20 years, so is the perfect partner to help develop this exciting new class.
“With foiling here to stay in sailing, there is no better time to bring the AC40 into the private market, particularly when it has huge backing and technical support from ETNZ, McConaghy Boats and the wider sailing audience.
One of the newest and most exciting areas of foiling is the collaboration between sailors and computational power, whereby sailors work alongside technology to assist them with flight. This technology makes the AC40 appealing to a new breed of owners like never before.”
