Holland Jachtbouw has announced the order for the construction of a replica of one of the most sensational J-Class yachts ever built. The contract for the 39.5-metre Yankee was officially signed by Simon Dierdorp, the leader of the syndicate, at the Monaco show and the race is now on to have the yacht ready in time for the J-Class regatta events in England in summer 2012.
The new Yankee has been redesigned by Dykstra & Partners Naval Architects by Gerard Dijkstra, following closely the original template of Frank C. Paine. In accordance with the latest J-Class Association regulations, she will be built in aluminium with a carbon mast and rigging and 3-DL sails. Constructed to Lloyds and MCA, Yankee will be used for both racing and chartering.
The build of the hull will begin in October 2010 at Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw in Makkum (NL) for delivery to Holland Jachtbouw in 2011.
