Owned and operated by Vagabond Cruises, The Stars and Stripes is an original 12-meter America’s Cup boat. This grand and celebrated sailboat is the historical America’s Cup winning vessel designed and skippered by the famous Captain Dennis Conner, also known as ‘Mister America’s Cup.’
The Stars and Stripes offers two exceptional trips: one departing in the afternoon for a 90-minute sail and the other based around the sunset for a two-hour sail where you are sure to see a breathing Carolina sunset. Trips are conducted under full sail with fabulous views of dolphins and the gorgeous Lowcountry.
The Stars and Stripes measures 65 feet in length, hosting a 92 foot tall mast. All of the wenches & grinders are original from its competitive sailing past. Modifications have been made to the vessel to conform to commercial standards required by the Coast Guard.
Aboard The Stars and Stripes you will find seating on the deck of the vessel, and while under full sail you are welcome to move about the deck. When tacking (changing direction of the sail) you simply take a seat if not participating in the tack. The Stars and Stripes is Coast Guard approved to carry 45 passengers. It features a full crew, cold libations, a running head.
Whether you are a very experienced sailor or new to the water you will always remember your experience aboard The Stars and Stripes, a true living piece of American history. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
