  General Condition
America's Cup yacht Stars & Stripes (sail number 34) is probably most famous for not winning a Cup. It wasn't because she didn't perform under pressure, but because she never got the chance. While the 24 meter yacht, designed by David Peddic and built in 1994 by Goetz Boat Works, won the right to defend the Cup, Dennis Conner chose Young America (US 36) over Stars & Stripes. The new choice was no match for Team New Zealand's Black Magic, which beat out Team Dennis Conner four times in a row.
  Actual Condition
It is reported that the boat is in overall good condition and had been used for tourist day trips in Chicago area for a few years. There are dings in the carbon fiber on the bow and stern mainly due to bumping into the dock...other than that the boat appears to be in good shape.
