About the Constellation (1964) yacht Constellation is an American racing yacht in 12-metre class and was designed by Olin J. Stephens. Stehphens’ aim was to have an improved version of Columbia with a further refinement of the keel area and an improvement of the equipment as lightweight as was admitted by the rule. She was a quite elegant all-round boat, which was selected as Cup Defender over the large and powerful American Eagle , which was only superior in heavy weather. And she successfully defended the 1964 Amercia’s Cup by the victory 4-0 over the British contender Sovereign.
