Bella Mente Launches 72-footer

The team from Bella Mente, which last year announced its bid to return the America’s Cup to the U.S., will be launching a new Maxi 72 yacht this summer.

The new boat is being built by New England Boatworks in Portsmouth, R.I., and was designed by Botin Partners. It is the fourth yacht to race under the Bella Mente name and is due to be launched in July. The boat will be shipped to Porto Cervo, in Sardinia, for the 2018 Rolex Maxi 72 Worlds in September.

Bella Mente, which is affiliated with Quantum Racing, will compete under the colors of the New York Yacht Club.
