Warbaby (Formerly Tenacious)

Design No 2089 pic
LOA 61 ft 5 in
LWL 46 ft
Beam 15 ft 8 in
Draft 8 ft 11 in
Warbaby's victory in the tragic 1979 Fastnet Race symbolizes much of the Sparkman & Stephens design philosophy. Although many of the other boats in that race, slightly built and overpowered, were destroyed by the violence of the sea, Warbaby came through unscathed because her designers admitted modernization without sacrificing strength or seaworthiness. Indeed, Warbaby represents the transition from old to new and demonstrates the continuity of S&S design. Her fine ends and solid construction recall the ocean racers of the 1930's, while her broader beam and reduced underwater profile are more typical of today's designs.

Finisterre

Design No 1054 pic
LOA 38 ft 6 in
LWL 27 ft 6 in
Beam 11 ft 3 in
Draft 3 ft 11 in (board up)
When first launched in 1954, Finisterre struck many in the racing community as too round and fat to believable. However, after winning the Bermuda Race three times in a row, the racing community was sufficiently silenced. However, Finisterre was not originally conceived as an all-out racer. Indeed owner Carleton Mitchell confessed, "My idea in Finisterre was to build a floating home for two people." Down below she was the ultimate example of the perfect use of space. Nothing was left out and her fit-out included a mechanical icebox, shower, depth finders, barographs and enough other gadgets to sink a normal boat twice her size. While no mention of rating was made during her design, her heavy construction and voluminous hull were seen as detrimental to speed. However, that same hefty construction, when combined with a slippery hull, good sails, excellent seamanship and an all-star crew resulted in a boat that sailed better than her rating said she should. In fact, she sailed faster than many boats her size and larger, without a handicap.

30' Cruising Sloop - Babe II

Olin Stephens was recently asked “if you could chose an older design and modernize it, which would it be?” Olin chose Babe, design number 97. We worked with him to make the modernization, which included modernization of the underbody, fin keel with bulb, spade rudder and increased sail area.
