A truly evocative boat credited with defining an entire generation of America's Cup and Offshore sailing, she is seriously for sale to the discerning individual or partywho wishes to continue as caretaker of one of the great American racing classics.

Her offering includes the opportunity to continue with a Syndicate Charter (with their own suit of racing sails) in place through to the 2019 World Championships.

Serving a central role in the America's Cup Charters organization in Newport, American Eagle along with her stablemates Weatherly, Intrepid, and Nefertiti has introduced tens of thousands of vacationers and enthusiasts to the history and thrill of Twelve Meter sailing on Narragansett Bay and beyond for over 30 years.
