WSA-winning sailing yacht Rainbow JH2 for sale at YPI

WSA-winning sailing yacht Rainbow JH2 for sale at YPI

Ever the opportunist, Mark Duncan at Yachting Partners International asks me to point out that, fresh from her triumph at last week's World Superyacht Awards, the 39.85m sailing yacht Rainbow JH2 remains for sale with William Bishop.

The original J-class Rainbow won the America’s Cup in 1934 and was designed by William Starling Burgess and built by Herreshoff in the USA. Built by Holland Jachtbouw in 2012 in aluminium, this 39.95m Rainbow JH2 replica is based on the original design, with a modern update from Dykstra & Partners.

‘We are very proud to be able to offer Rainbow JH2 for sale as part of our sailing yacht fleet,’ says Will Bishop. ‘We are excited to see the renewed interest being generated today by the iconic J-class fleet.

Built for an experienced sailing yacht owner, she’s the first J-class yacht with a complete hybrid propulsion and power system. This means fuel savings of up to 30% as well as a reduction in sound. She can sail underway in silent operation and has ample hydraulic power in racing mode.

Lloyds classed and MCA compliant, Rainbow JH2 has a mahogany-panelled interior with a classic 1930’s feel and offers accommodation for up to eight guests and seven crew. Guest accommodation consists of three cabins: a master, double and twin with two Pullman berths.
