The foiling AC75s won’t be the only boats catching the eye of America’s Cup fans and viewers around the world this summer. De Antonio Yachts, one of the world’s iconic day boat manufacturers based out of Barcelona, unveiled its stunning D37 Alinghi Red Bull Racing Limited Edition this weekend at the Düsseldorf Boat Show designed in collaboration with the Swiss Challengers for the Louis Vuitton 37th America’s Cup. Youth & Women’s America’s Cup sailors Anja von Allmen and Joshua Richner represented Alinghi Red Bull Racing at the boat unveiling to celebrate the partnership.
The limited edition model will feature design elements and hardware details that speak to the look, feel, and values of Alinghi Red Bull Racing as a team and will have a production run of only 37 units.
As part of the D37’s unveiling, the boat has been named an official spectator boat of Alinghi Red Bull Racing for the America’s Cup campaign. The team will have two D37s, alongside two electric D28 boats.
“To see our team’s colors and ethos represented in such a unique yacht design like the De Antonio D37 Alinghi Red Bull Racing limited edition is very special for our entire campaign,” said Michel Hodara, Alinghi Red Bull Racing co-general manager. “Having such a premium boat builder as partners will elevate the America’s Cup experience for guests who get the chance to experience the Cup atmosphere from the deck of a De Antonio. It also provides us the opportunity to showcase alternative energy solutions with the electric powertrains on the smaller D28.”
The D37 Alinghi Red Bull Racing is a model based on the award-winning D36 introduced in 2022. The new limited edition is equipped with two Mercury 400hp Racing engines. Both the exterior and interior have been redesigned for the D37 incorporating the team’s official navy blue with red accents. The design touches include special upholstery finishes with bucket seats and steering wheel in navy blue leather and red stitching. The new version also features many details in the carbon fiber such as inscriptions with the Alinghi Red Bull Racing logo.
“The new D37 Alinghi Red Bull Racing is a collector’s piece designed for lovers of sailing, passionate about the team and the competition. A very special model for its finishes and high performance that will only be marketed during this year,” said Marc de Antonio, co-founder of the brand.
Alinghi Red Bull Racing now has the D37 – alongside its race boats – as another innovative craft that will inspire fans and team members alike throughout the Cup year.
