The new AC40 team will be similar to New Zealand’s Test wrestling Te Kahu, which was crucial in their defense of the USA Cup.
The New Zealand team has confirmed a path for women in the US Cup using a new 40 million goal monohole.
The boat will also be used for the Youth America Cup, and the syndicates can use it as a test platform for their new full-size AC75s to travel to the next edition of Yachting’s premier event.
A design boat will carry four sailors – two on each side – and will be used in the early America’s Cup warm-up regatta.
It is hoped that private owners will also be able to use the AC40 design to develop a class on its own. The design, which is now being worked on, includes an automated pilot for sheet trimming.
The wrestling team resembles New Zealand’s impressive Test Boat T Kahu, which was an integral part of their development in the successful defense of the Old Mug this year.
The team continues New Zealand’s reputation for innovation and technology and is at the forefront of thwarting hydrogen-powered chase boats, the first of which is in Auckland.
Teams participating in the next USA Cup should field women’s and youth teams, although they will likely come through their backing yacht clubs.

“They’re going to be incredibly fast. Our test boot was incredibly fast. It wasn’t as fast as the AC75, but it wasn’t much different. It’s just a ratio of power, but its speed is the same. Will be.
“We want to make it a multipurpose boat. It has the potential to reach Wednesday night’s race.
Team New Zealand and their supporting club believe that the AC40 will be an ideal route for women in the USA Cup.
He sees the boat as a huge development on the nine-meter filing monoholes that were developed for the last USA Cup but never participated in because the New Zealand government does not allow MIQs to overseas teams. This event was canceled after giving.
