Restored at MPG of Mystic, Connecticut, USA and started racing again on the Eastern seaboard in 2011. Spartan is the only surviving New York 50 design.

2016

In August 2016 Spartan took on her first Mediterranean regatta at the Vela Clasica Mallorca event based out of Club de Mar. She raced against the smaller gaff cutter, Marigan, and after two races each had a 1st place. However the last days racing Spartan raced against the two 15-Metre yachts, Hispania and The Lady Anne, to play against yachts her own size and beat them both.
