11 superyachts spotted in Bermuda for the 2017 America's Cup


The much-anticipated 35th America's Cup kicked off on May 27 in Bermuda and hundreds of people have flocked to this tiny spot in the North Atlantic Ocean with their yachts for the occasion, which will continue throughout June. Additionally, Boat International hosted the America's Cup Superyacht Regatta from June 12-15, meaning that a number of the stunning participants are still being photographed across the island.

1. Jetsetter

The 38.6 metre superyacht Jetsetter has been spotted a number of times watching the racing in Bermuda since June 10. She is currently located at the heart of the Great Sound alongside Asahi, Rena and Musashi.

Delivered last year by Dynamiq, an official supplier of the America's Cup, Jetsetter can sleep up to 10 guests in four cabins and has an interior designed by Bannenberg & Rowell. She is currently for listed sale and was chartered by the ACEA from June 9 until the final race day.


After a few months cruising around the Caribbean, making stops in Tortola, St Thomas, Gustavia and a number of other islands, 54 metre Benetti Starfire is now in Bermuda, and will be there for the duration of the America's Cup. Currently, she's anchored in Hamilton, with 56 metre Rosehearty, 49.96 metre Jo and 52.36 metre Elfje nearby.

Delivered in 1998 and refitted in 2012, her art deco interior can accommodate up to 12 guests in six cabins, which includes a full-beam master suite.

Currently located in Caroline Bay Marina, the 46.94 metre  superyacht Rhino is moored alongside the likes of 47.7 metre Arabella, 31 metre Race For Water and 24 metre Aiyana.

Delivered in 1998 by Admiral Marine and last refitted in 2015, Rhino will most likely spend the summer months in Bermuda, the Bahamas or New England.

Caroline Bay sits within the Little Sound and can host yachts up to 90 metres. Its perfect positioning for viewing all the action of the 35th America's Cup makes it one of the best new marinas to discover around the world. The rest of the Caroline Bay development, which will include a hotel, restaurants, luxury residences and spa, is due for completion in April 2018.
