After being the first team to bring an AC75 up on foils last year, American Magic sets a new record as PATRIOT is the first race boat to touch the water.

The official launch ceremony took place this morning at the team’s new base on Auckland’s Viaduct and the team revealed an AC75 that, as expected, is a significant evolution from their first boat especially in terms of hull shape.
