Original owner-skipper Harold Vanderbilt (1884-1970) successfully defended the America’s Cup three times with Enterprise (1930), Rainbow (1934), and the mighty Ranger (1937). He helmed for all three defences, with tactician Sherman Hoyt. By the end of 1941, Enterprise and Ranger, which had been laid up with all the other US Js, were scrapped.
The Ranger that sails today is a replica built to the original lines drawings in steel and launched at the Danish Yacht shipyard in Skagen, Denmark in 2003. More information from http://www.jclassyachts.com/yacht/721
