An international 12 mtr class yacht - the 12 mtr class was a formula for producing a yacht which could compete on an even footing with other yachts built to that formula, the formula started in the early 1900's and went on to be used in the Olympics and finally the America's cup races.
Inspite of being called 12 mtrs it has nothing to do with length, in fact some of the boats built to the rule were over 20 mts long
