About VIM: Harold S. Vanderbilt commissioned VIM, a classic 12-metre class yacht, in 1939. Renowned designer Olin J. Stephens of Sparkman & Stephens was tasked with her design. Vanderbilt envisioned a yacht capable of winning the America’s Cup. While narrowly missing this goal in 1958, VIM nonetheless secured a lasting place in sailing history. Since then, she has remained actively in service, sailing in some of the most prestigious regattas in the Mediterranean today.
