There is almost nothing as exciting as being at the helm of an America's Cup yacht steering it upwind or trimming the spinnaker on a close reach. Imagine yourself in a match racing start, or making a close quarters mark rounding as you battle the opposing crew. If you would like the ultimate experience in sailing and team building, Lionheart K-18 is for you. This boat is ONLY available for half-day races.
Lionheart K-18 is a modern America’s Cup class 12 meter yacht designed by Ian Howlett and built by Joyce Marine Shipyards of Southhampton, UK in 1978 for Peter d’Savary’s British America’s Cup Challenger syndicate for the 1980 America’s Cup in Newport, R.I.
Usually this boat operates around Greenwich, CT.
Explore the Western Long Island Sound - the area from New Haven, CT west to City Island and the Throgs Neck Bridge. There are plenty of things to do in Oyster Bay and the neighboring harbors on both the NY and CT side - try one of our Long Island fishing charters, or indulge yourself at one of the waterfront restaurants in Stamford or Greenwich, CT. Go for an Oyster Bay sailing leisure trip, or plan a sunset cruise in Northport Harbor past the Willie K. Vanderbilt estate.
