SOLD OUT & DISCONTINUED
 
FAMOUS TRANS-ATLANTIC RACE WINNER "DORADE"
Read the new Wall Street Journal Article About DORADE Below!

 
 
DORADE DIMENSIONS: 28 L x 35 H x 5 1/4" W WEIGHT 1 1/2 Lbs                                                                          
 

We proudly present the famous ocean racer of the 1930's, the famous Sparkman & Stephens yawl, DORADE. She is built using the same quality plank on bulkhead construction as all of our models. Dorade sets a new standard for the larger size perfect reproductions of the famous American designed vessels for which we are noted as the source. She is a welcomed addition to our collection. Dorade features a beautifully shaped hull with spoon bow and stern overhang, glistening in white enamel, varnished masts, decks and cabin houses. She is yawl rigged and is flying a 110 percent Genoa, staysail, main and mizzen. The running rigging, including carefully stitched sails complete with battens, is authentic down to the last detail. She makes an incomparable model and will be a perfect addition to your home, den or office.
 
By comparison to other models, she is a big model. 28" overall, 35" tall (base to the top of mast) with a beam of 5 1/4" 
 
Everything about Dorade is outstanding. She is exceptional in all respects. I hesitate to use the term, but this is a near museum quality model, at an unrealistically low price.
 
If you've been browsing through all the boat models offered on eBay, you will be hard pressed to find something that represents boats that are North American in design, and are executed as finely overall. You can spend a lot more money for so called "museum quality" detailing, but you can get the same satisfaction from our new line of moderately priced,  high quality models.

In addition to DORADE, don't forget that we are the source for full hull models of the Schooners Adventuress, America, two sizes of Bluenose, the three master Wawona, a Chesapeake Bay Skipjack, the much admired Herreshoff 12.5, the New York 30 and the famous "S" Boat. A Friendship sloop, and S&S's Dorade and Odyssey. The Marshall Sanderling and Beetle catboats. In motorboats, we offer Chris Craft's Barrel Back, 1942 Twin Cockpit runabout, a Triple Cockpit runabout, and the 17 foot Utility. In other motor vessels we have the GarWood Speedster, a classic 1920 motor yacht, a lobster boat, and a 1926 Dreamboat. In sailboats we have the Crosby cat, the Marshall 18, and Beetle cats, two different sizes of the Schooner Bluenose and the Gertrude L. Thebaud. Our collection of J Class includes Rainbow, Endeavour, Enterprise, Shamrock, each as full models or half hulls.
 
As a retired professional Master mariner, we take pride in offering high quality models of boats known and loved by American sailors at a reasonable price that will give you lasting enjoyment, and pride of ownership. Therefore, please don't confuse our models with others you see on the internet. All MODELS are NOT CREATED EQUAL. There is no comparison to our replicas at near this price. Before you buy, make sure to look at all photographs carefully. Ours will show a model of unparalleled quality and faithfulness to the original builder's plans. Give-always are the rake of the masts, fit of the sails, the proportions of the hull, and the cut of the bow. If you're in doubt, email us!
 
SPARKMAN & STEPHENS YAWL DORADE HISTORY:
 
L/B/D: 52 10.2 7.6 feet.
 
Tons: 19 disp.
 
Hull: wood.
 
Comp.: 7. Designer: Olin Stephens (Sparkman & Stephens).
 
Built: Minneford Yacht Yard, Inc., City Island, N.Y.; 1929.
 
One of the first yachts designed by young naval architect Olin Stephens, Dorade was a racing cruiser ordered by his father. Her inspired design helped launch the careers of both Olin and his brother Rod Stephens, one of the premier yachtsmen of the mid-century. On July 4, 1931, Dorade sailed from Brenton's Reef at the start of the Transatlantic Race with a crew that included the Stephens brothers. Dorade swept the field of ten boats and arrived off Plymouth's Ram Island on July 21, 16 days, 55 minutes out—two days ahead of any other entrant; on corrected time her margin of victory was four days. Later that summer, Dorade won the Fastnet Race. Dorade returned to the United States via steamship and upon their return to New York, the crew were given a ticker-tape parade on Broadway from Battery Park to City Hall.
 
The next year, Dorade finished first in Class B in the Bermuda Race, and in 1933, Rod Stephens took her back across the Atlantic. After cruising in Norway, she won the Fastnet for a second time before returning to the United States under sail. One of Dorade's most enduring contributions to yacht design is seen not in her hull but in the Dorade ventilator, developed over the course of a few seasons, which by means of discontinuous air spouts leading from a traditional cowl ventilator allows air to circulate below while keeping out water.
 
In 1935, Dorade was sold to James Flood of San Francisco, who sailed her to victory in the 1936 Honolulu Race. She has remained on the West Coast ever since—picking up an auxiliary diesel engine along the way— Mike Douglas of Deer Harbor, Washington sold Dorade to Italy. Later, Peter Frech of Copenhagen, Denmark purchased Dorade in Bologna, and raced her from 1999 to 2005 on the "Med Circuit". Edgar Cato of Charlotte, NC bought the boat from Frech in 2005 and has once again campaigned her with success in ocean races.
