Luna Rossa reveal their AC75

Official boat for the 37th America’s Cup launched in Cagliari

The sea in Cagliari was tinged with silver: the long-awaited launch of Luna Rossa AC75 Foiling finally happened.

The official boat with which the Italian team will be competing in the regattas for the 37th America’s Cup, scheduled in Barcelona, Spain, starting from 29 August, was unveiled at the Molo Ichnusa base on Saturday 13 April. An incredible challenge in terms of technological innovation and sailing skills on board, which has witnessed Unipol “sailing” together with Luna Rossa as the team’s official sponsor and insurance partner since 2022.

Twenty-five years after the launch of the first Luna Rossa, Miuccia Prada christened the vessel by breaking the fateful bottle on the bow of the extraordinary silver hull of AC75 Foiling, which immediately after touched the water for the first time.
Its sharp and powerful lines, enhanced by a bold “Metal K” metallic livery, are a declaration of intent and reveal the enormous effort behind this radical project which incorporates design solutions, technological innovations and experimental materials tested on the LEQ 12 prototype in the last 2 years.

Conceived by the team’s design area and built at the Persico Marine shipyard in Nembro (BG), Luna Rossa required over 70,000 working hours and 3,500 m2 of carbon fibre. It features a 26.5 meter mast with 2 twin mainsails plus a bow sail (jib), for a total sail area of approximately 220 m2 mainly in carbon. Two foils (the yellow wings) allow it to fly over the water at speeds of up to 100 km per hour.

The crew on board includes 8 members: two helmsmen, two trimmers and four cyclors.

A perfect synthesis between form and function, Luna Rossa is the top expression of innovation applied to boating. Technology, beauty, passion and competitiveness for an exceptional vessel, which has now started its challenge at the 37th #AmericasCup. And we at Unipol will be with her and the whole team.

Silver soul, yellow wings, Italian pride. Forza Luna Rossa!
