Team New Zealand has revealed the boat it hopes will win the 2021 America’s Cup.

The second generation, AC75, was unveiled in Auckland’s Viaduct last week.

The boat has been named Te Rehutai, meaning sea spray.

Te Rehutai is the last America’s Cup boat to be launched with the three challengers Luna Rossa, American Magic and Team UK all unveiling their boats last month.

There is plenty that is different looking at the overall shape of Te Rehutai. The strange shape points to the clear aerodynamic emphasis given to the design.

The sailing team have been off the water for close to five weeks. they have spent that time in the gym, and even more hours in the shed helping prepare Te Rehutai for launch.
