J-class superyacht Rainbow transported to Holland Jachtbouw

J-class superyacht Rainbow transported to Holland Jachtbouw

Begun at Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw in October 2009, the construction of Rainbow's hull is now complete. The casco was transported on a barge to Holland Jachtbouw in Zaandam yesterday, where she will be fitted out.

The original Rainbow won the America's Cup in 1934. She was designed by William Starling Burgess, and built by Herreshoff, USA. In 1940, she was sold for scrap. Built in aluminium, the 39.95m Rainbow replica is based on the original design, with a modern update from Dykstra Naval Architects. Her interior will keep a 1930s decor accommodating 8 guests and 8 crew.

Rainbow's launch is expected for early 2012, to be ready for the J-class events in Falmouth and Cowes in June 2012 where she will compete against other J-class superyachts. Also, she will be available for charter during the 2012 Olympic Games of London.
