“Furthermore Emirates Team New Zealand will be launching another 3 boats as part of its 37th America’s Cup defence from their new base in Auckland.”

So, no McConaghy built boats at least for TNZ

Nonsense. The AC40 will be built by McConaghy in China, then shipped over to Auckland + fitted out and then launched by Emirates Team New Zealand themselves. That's how I understand it. The first of the initially 8 commissioned AC40 will leave the McConaghy Boatyard in China on July 22nd 2022 and will be launched by the Defender sometime at the end of August/early September I am hearing certainly before the Sept 17th Non-Sailing Period closes.

Get your facts straight!!!

They will be "launching" 3 boats.

But those boats will be 2 x McConaghy built but NZ finished AC40's and 1 xhomebuilt AC75.
