The task required skillful craftsmen hundreds of hours to accomplish. The Ranger won the 1937 America's Cup, defeating 4-0 the Endeavour II of Britain, raced at Newport, Rhode Island. In the last Race, Ranger had set a new Cup record over the triangular course, previously set by Endeavour I in the second race of the 1934 challenge, in 3 hours 9 minutes 1 second that is to say 1 minute 12 seconds less than the 1934 challenger. It would be the last time huge J-class yachts would race for the America's Cup.
Harold Stirling Vanderbilt funded construction of the Ranger, and it launched on May 11, 1937. It was designed by Starling Burgess and Olin Stephens, and constructed by Bath Iron Works. Tank tests were carried out with various models and they finally agreed on the model 77C of their designs, and tried to improve it, but in vain: the model was perfect. The choice of the model of Ranger astonished Burgess: without the test results no-one would have dared choose such a design. During the 1937 season, between June and September out of 37 races, including the America's Cup races, Ranger won 35 times.
