Boatyard Update: Heritage Gets an Updated Shine!

This winter our America's Cup contender, Heritage, has been getting an updated look at Bristol Marine in Somerset, Massachusetts!  In 2014, she will feature many, many, many updates including a new bottom color, new deck color and a new shine.  Heritage was stripped completely down to her bare wood topsides and will have a completely new varnished shine this sailing season!

Check out the team at Bristol Marine working on our bright hulled beauty in the photos below.
We can't wait to see the finished product, can you?  We start sailing in early May, contact us today to book your America's Cup 12 Meter sail!

#BostonStrong Newport Style!

The 12 Meter Charters team had the pleasure of having Newport's Heather Abbott sail with them aboard our America's Cup winner, Columbia, last August.  On this Marathon Monday, the 12 Meter Charters team is thinking of Heather and are so thrilled to have have had her sail with us aboard Columbia! #HeatherStrong
