Black Magic (NZL30, NZL32) - new build
After leaping onto the America’s Cup scene in spectacular style in 1987, New Zealand quickly became the challenger to beat. After some dramatic but ultimately unsuccessful challenges for the America’s Cup in 1988 and 1992, New Zealand regrouped under the leadership of the late Sir Peter Blake to challenge again in San Diego in 1995.
New Zealand put together a near faultless campaign, dominating every stage of the the event with superior boat speed, crew discipline and yacht reliability.
McMullen & Wing is proud to have been chosen to build the triumphant NZL38 and her sistership NZL32 and to have helped New Zealand make history in winning the world’s oldest sporting trophy.
