With nearly 20,000 man-hours and over six months to build, the original Emirates Team of New Zealand (ETNZ) racing yacht finished the 32nd America's Cup at a very respectable second place and won the the 2007 32nd Louis Vuitton-Round Robins Ranking.
Thunder Tiger is authorized to replicate the America's Cup yacht ETNZ in a 1M model with high-quality fiberglass hull, tear-resistant racing sails and low drag steel ballast.
If you are looking for a challenge, the ETNZ is most certainly all you'll ever need!
Note that mid to light winds are suggested when sailing the ETNZ. At 25:1 scale, the ETNZ's sail area is much larger than most 1m RC racing yachts and proper adjustment of the sails is crucial with this model.
