This will be the first America’s Cup World Series event to be hosted in the United States.

The HBI 30 is designed and built by Portsmouth, R.I.-based Hunt Yachts to be a luxury tender and sport boat for use in demanding conditions, precisely what is found when serving as a spectator boat for the racing AC 45 catamarans.

HBI Boats, of the Noank section of Groton, Conn., is providing the HBI 30s, continuing a tradition it established in 1992 of America’s Cup service when its craft supported America3.
