We always looked forward to taking a sail on the America II. We are very sad to hear that the boat now lives in NY.

The America II lost it's permit due to the passing of its owner. It did NOT go broke. I will miss it and the many wonderful sailing adventures.

If you want to stay dry, get a seat on the "high side" of the boat. How? Ask if they will be on a port (left) or starboard (right) tack going out.... More

We make a point of taking the performance sail on the America II every time we come to Maui, at least once a year. It is beautiful and thrilling,you meet a lot of nice people and it's probably the most economically priced attraction on the island. Keep up the great work.
