    [Source: Emirates Team New Zealand] The much anticipated Emirates Team New Zealand AC72 Boat 2 has been delivered from Cookson’s Boatyard to the team base in Auckland’s Viaduct.

    After months of continuous hard work and over 40,000 man hours the second of the teams AC72′s has been completed.

    The job now is to piece it together then fit it out with all of the complex systems and get it out on the water in the next few weeks to be load tested, tuned and resume the sailing program to get it up to speed in final preparations before shipping it to San Francisco for the start of the Louis Vuitton Cup in July.
