Amorita is quite possibly the most famous and successful of the venerable 18 New York 30’s built.  She won nearly every Classic Yachting event in Southern New England and has become a fixture in New York Yacht Club events.

In 2007 she gained unwanted notoriety when she was the victim of a horrendous crash that sent her to the bottom.  She was rescued and underwent a full rebuild at MPG in Mystic, Connecticut, USA. She is a credit to those who have spent their time and energy in bringing her back from the deep.
