Meet the Boat: The AC45

The AC45 is a lean, mean, speed machine. Held down by a crew of five, this 44-foot long catamaran can cruise at speeds of over 30 knots in the right conditions. Designed by the defending team ORACLE Racing, the AC45 has already helped to make sailing a more visual and exciting spectator sport--plus, these boats can each fit into a 40-foot container!
