  • The second J Class competing in the Menorca Maxi regatta is now in Menorcan waters.

    Back in 1937 the original “Endeavour II” was built in steel at the Nicholson’s Yard and designed by Charles Nicholson. “Endeavour II” was built to battle the J’s in the America’s Cup Race that year, maximizing the waterline to 87ft she challenged “Ranger” but did not beat her. The original Endeavour II was scrapped in 1968.

    Dykstra & Partners from Amsterdam took on the job to design the replica of this biggest J ever built to date. Hanuman was built in Alustar with a carbon mast at Royal Huisman Shipyard, no stranger to the J Class yachts. She was the first new J to be built in the Netherlands and launched in 2009.
