Yacht: Yankee

Submit Information on this Yacht



The third American J, Yankee, was the best all-rounder.   At 84ft on the waterline and 125ft length overall, she was solidly made of Tobin bronze and was extremely well balanced.   Designed by Frank Paine, Yankee had an almost straight sheerline and easy lines.   She was a powerful contender for defender, but not fine-tuned enough to succeed.   She did, however, take part in the 1934 America’s Cup trials and with alterations to her rig, to carry more sail, and bow, which was lengthened and made more of a V-shape, she then proved more successful, especially in light winds.
Dykstra Naval Architects have designed and optimized Yankee.
