Owner Details & History

A Swiss project not built Following the 1983 Match, in Switzerland, the Association Suisse pour la Coupe de l'America was established in 1984. Jean Grobety, a dentist from Geneva and successful designer of 5.5m I.R. and 6m I.R. boats, was requested to draft two projects for a Swiss challenger for the America's Cup; Helvetia is the first one. It was followed by an improved version, Swiss made. Neither were built.
