A Look at the New J-Class Rainbow

Expected for final hand-over to her owner this month, Rainbow is undergoing final sea trials in Holland. The 131-foot (40-meter) megayacht is a replica of the same-named America’s Cup winner from 1934.

Rainbow launched at Holland Jachtbouw earlier this year and will serve as both a racer and a cruiser. If you’ll be attending the J-Class Regattas in the UK this summer, look for Rainbow to sail as JH-2.

Here are some of the first images of Rainbow on the water and her crew putting her through her paces, taken last month.

  1. Congratulations to Rainbow and her crew for the succesful training week.
    Rainbow is originally designed by Starling Burgess in 1933 and re-designed by Dykstra & Partners Naval Architects. We look forward to see all the J’s re-designed by Dykstra & Partners Naval Architects (Shamrock V, Velsheda, Endeavour, Ranger, Hanuman and Rainbow) racing in the UK soon!
