- 21 American Eagle built in 1964 is Ted Turner's famous champion. Before
the young Ted Turner bought American Eagle and won most of the world's
greatest ocean races, she began her career racing for the America's
Cup in Newport.
Eagle was designed and built by A. E. Luders for the 1964 America's
Cup Defense. She won the observation trials, but by the close of the
season her rival Constellation had secured the right to defend the America's
Cup, easily beating the British Challenger, Sovereign. American Eagle
was subsequently Ted Turner's stepping stone to America's Cup victory.
