About this Nicholas Potter New York 30

Built for Pacific Coast yachting, the California 32 has the reputation of being a formidable racer and a comfortable cruiser - designed by Nicholas S. Potter, AKA the "Herreshoff of the West". Eight of these sloops were built between the mid 1930s and the mid 60s.

The California 32 was often a cover girl in the US West Coast yachting press. CHOLITA, ALTAMAR, TEMPEST, ESCAPADE and AMORITA were built before World War II. They were succeeded post war by ATORRANTE and ANDALE – then finally PEGASO in 1965.

The first seven California 32s won 14 out of 16 “Sir Thomas Lipton Cups” from 1948 to 1964 and subsequently dominated most other West Coast races.

AMORITA has been sympathetically restored and successfully raced on the classic Med circuit – so far ahead of her 1930s timeline, this is a design that can be easily raced by a family crew and also cruised as her designer intended. She is in our view one of very few yachts from this period that appears to be sailing at 10 knots tied to the dock! Fast and furious to sail it is only if you study all her original detail and gorgeous simplicity along with her purity of line, the game is given away - vintage yacht designed before World War II.

History


AMORITA is the last of five boats of this design built for the founder members of the California 32 One Design Class, founded and run under the supervision of the designer and the first owners. The boats were all launched on the same day in spring 1937. Built using a construction method developed by Herreshoff, they were built upside down over a mould, then turned right side up for completion with tremendous savings and greatly improved construction. This was the first time on the US Pacific Coast that a major class had been so constructed.

AMORITA was first owned by Bruce Beardsley of Newport RI. Subsequently her ownerships appear to have shuttled between the North American East and West coasts. Nevertheless until the 60s the California 32s raced in many important events on the Pacific coast with excellent results in races such as the Acapulco Channel Race, Transpac, and Seattle’s Tri-Island. In both 1959 and 1960 AMORITA won the Californian Lipton Cup.

Brought to Italy in 2005 from San Francisco, AMORITA was restored by Cantiere Navale dell’Argentario in Porto Santo Stefano Grosseto for the present owner and launched in June 2007. AMORITA won the Mediterranean Panerai Trophy in 2007 and came in second in 2008. She also won the Puig Vela Classica Barcelona that same year.
