AMERICA – This magnificent sailing vessel is a replica of the 139-foot yacht (AMERICA) that won the historic, Royal Yacht Squadron’s “100 Guinea Cup” race around the Isle of Wight in 1851.

AMERICA | San Diego Boat Charters, SD Harbor Cruises
Join us on America for an amazing sail around the georgous San Diego harbor as we provide a history of this famous America’s Cup yacht, the America’s Cup itself and where the ‘cup’ competition stands today. All of our guests have the opportunity to help in raising the huge sails, try your hand at the helm and take as many photographs as you wish of the many San Diego sights throughout the harbor.
The original America Low Black Schooner was designed by a young genius who combined the best of Old World theory and New World practicality. Her later career was equally as colorful – conveyor of secret agents, Confederate blockade runner, Union warship, Naval Academy training vessel, and pride and joy of a famous Civil War general and politician. By her end in 1945, she was one of the most honored vessels in the United States.
The America sails quite fast for her size but at the same time is incredibly stable. Elegant dining events and sunset cocktail sails are a regular activity on this beautiful vessel. Be assured that we are very serious when we mention our ‘No seasickness guarantee’.
