Il Moro di Venezia V ITA-25
Plan download

The new IACC class made its debut in 1992. Il Moro di Venezia was the italian boat used to compete in the Louis Vuitton Cup, the races to select the America's Cup challenger. Designers were facing for the first time the new rule; this made it necessary to build five versions of Il Moro to have a really competitive boat. Results came soon: Il Moro V won the Louis Vuitton Cup and raced the America's Cup where it was defeated 4-1 from Bill Koch's America3.

The model I designed is a 1/20 replica of the boat that is in my opinion one of the most beautiful IACC yachts. The distinctive features of this boat are a rather pronounced maximum beam and sections with sloping sides that become vertical near the bow. I replicated all of this aspects in my design, trying to merge a realistical look with the technical aspects needed to have a performing hull.
