1985 Custom Americas Cup 12 meter Cruiser Sailboat in Simpson Bay

Stock #125664

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

Update October 2017:

Sadly, Azzurra was on her mooring in St. Martins during Hurricane Irma. She stayed afloat and attached to the mooring, but suffered a dismasting and multiple collisions by boats that broke free during the storm. She has a slow leak that has likely resulted in the engine being submerged. The first 6 pictures shows her current condition.

The seller is looking for an "as is" sale and will consider any reasonable offers for this unique vessel.

The following describes Azzurra prior to being damaged by Hurricane Irma.

S/V Azzurra is offered for sale as a truly unique and exquisitely historic vessel. Designed by Andrea Vallicelli as Azzurra II, the Italian Challenge for the 1987 America's Cup, she is a 12 Metre class yacht, converted after her cup debut to a cruising-capable performance vessel.

She has had a very recent overhaul of nearly all systems, including a 2015 Beta Marine 90hp diesel engine (with shaft, strut, and J-prop) all new running rigging and backstays, improved sheeting systems, roller furling headsail, galley, head, and cabin amendments, and new electronics, autopilot, and fresh water systems.

Currently able to be sailed shorthanded, Azzurra is unprecedented among fellow 12 Metre yachts, yet still, maintains her stallion reputation and ability as a performance sailboat. In the last year alone, she has blasted from Florida to Antigua, and cruised the Caribbean magnificently. While ready for an updated paint job, Azzurra still stands proud and reliable - a genuinely capable yacht ready to be cherished under new ownership.

Azzurra has a large wing keel, with aft-mounted trim tab rudder, and generously sized spade primary rudder. Her rudder post, steering cables, and trim tab shaft were serviced and inspected in 2015, with new turnbuckles and tightening, as well as u-joints installed on the trim tab shaft to accommodate her new engine.

Previous ownership modified the deck layout extensively from the original America's Cup 12 Metre racing format to accommodate more comfortable offshore sailing capabilities. Azzurra kept her Lewmar 3-speed jib sheeting coffee-grinders and pedestal, but moved all halyard, mainsheet, traveler, and running backstay lines into one tastefully teak-lined cockpit.

She has Lewmar65 winches for running backstays and Lewmar48 winches for the mainsheet, boom vang, and traveler. An electric powered Quick Winch assists with mainsail halyard hoisting.

There are numerous jib/genoa traveler tracks still present on her deck; however, her current 120% roller furling jib sheets to only one of these sets, with cars attached. A Harken MKIV roller furling unit was installed in 2015, with modified forestay.

Azzurra was outfitted with a custom designed interior for cruising by her previous owner. Moving aft-fore, she has a cozy galley area to starboard and pilot station w/ berth to port. Next a single head w/ electric toilet to starboard, and fridge unit w/ prep station to port. Continuing into the main salon, the primary navigation station is to starboard and another single "coffin" berth to port.

The salon hosts a large table and couch settee to port and single couch/day bunk to starboard. Continuing into the forward cabin, a double bunk to port and single to starboard, with storage below each. In the forepeak, a spacious storage area exists with foul weather gear rack, storage shelves, tool space, and sail lockers in the bow. New LED lights illuminate the main cabin area.

Her engine occupies a sizable region forward of the companionway steps, and a box housing the new Beta 90hp was constructed to serve concomitantly as table space.

Her mast is the original sans hydraulics, with the upper spreaders fixed to a conservative and moderate bend tension configuration. The original rod rigging shrouds are attached and have been dutifully inspected and lubed regularly.

Her boom was modified to an aluminum custom size and design in the 90s but facilitates three reef points in the mainsail. Azzurra has an original spinnaker pole on deck, although presently she is not rigged for flying a kite.

Dinghy included: 10ft Caribe dinghy w/ 5hp Mercury outboard

Information On Condition

The vessel is currently sitting on her mooring in St Martin, partially dismasted and awaiting repairs to be done sometime in the future.

In 2015 Simrad electronics were professionally installed and integrated in Jacksonville, FL. The new motor was installed.

Presently, her hull requires attention to several areas upon which the paint & fairing are separating from the aluminum (see photos). Built of solid aluminum top and bottom, the project to revitalize her hull cosmetically poses a mild hurdle, and she is capable of shining brilliantly again with moderate effort.

New running rigging for the mainsheet, jib sheet, traveler, vang, backstays, main & jib halyards, and furling lines were installed in 2015.
