"Courageous" was the third boat to win the America's Cup twice, in 1974 and 1977, after Columbia in 1899 and 1901, and Intrepid in 1967 and 1970. All three of these boats won for the New York Yacht Club and thus the United StatesCourageous was the first all aluminum-hulled 12-metre class yacht.

Courageous successfully defended the America's Cup for the USA in 1974 with Ted Hood at the helm. After the 1974 cup, Hood built a new boat which he thought was faster than Courageous, and sold Courageous to Ted Turner. Turner won the 1977 America's Cup defender trials in Courageous, beating Hood in the process, and then went on to successfully defend the America's Cup later that year
