Buy a Rapido – free shipping / delivery to America’s Cup 2021 OR carbon upgrade

October 04, 2019

Free Rapido delivery to Americas Cup!

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (RNZYS) will host the 36th America’s Cup from 6-21 March, 2021 in Auckland as it celebrates its 150th anniversary.

Auckland is also home to the Rapido 60, Romanza and so we think that requires a celebration – particularly when designers of the Rapido 40 / Rapido 50 / Rapido 60 , Morrelli & Melvin have had such a distinguished history with previous America’s Cups (think BMW Oracle Racing and Emirates Team New Zealand).

Free Rapido delivery to New Zealand for America’s Cup

If you purchase a Rapido 40 / Rapido 50 / Rapido 60 from now until further notice, Rapido Trimarans will ship or deliver the trimaran to Auckland for the America’s Cup events*.

Or, if you prefer, we will ship / deliver your Rapido to Sydney so that you can join the Sydney to Auckland Race on 30 January 2021.

It is true that the boats competing in the 2021 America’s Cup aren’t trimarans (gulp, they are monohulls…) – but they are amazing and utilise cutting edge technology. See Team New Zealand’s entry, which was christened just a month ago, in the clip below.

And to really whet your appetite, check out the America’s Cup Official Race course for 2021.

OR a free carbon upgrade!

If free shipping to New Zealand for the America’s Cup doesn’t float your boat, would you prefer a lighter Rapido with a free carbon upgrade (excludes mast)? OK, we can do that!

Update from Romanza’s co owner, Dougall Love

With regards to the America’s Cup (AC), there is quite a support program that will mean a lot of boats and people will be in town. RNZYS is basically running the events and the AC coincides with the RNZYS’ 150th anniversary so there’s full Events Program around it all.
