In 1935, when the New York Yacht Club was looking for boats to replace the "Thirties" created by Herreshoff, their requirements included blue water seaworthiness in addition to grace and quickness. Olin Stephens and the Nevins Yard met the challenge, specifying oak frames (1 5/8" on 8" centers), heavy Philippine mahogany planking, and a low, solid deck house, all without sacrificing speed or beauty. Originally priced at $11,000, the New York 32's have stood the test of time, with about two-thirds of the original fleet still sailing.

New York 32 Class 70th Birthday Celebration

On August 2 the Castine Yacht Club and Sparkman & Stephens will host a gala 70th Birthday Celebration for the New York 32 Class. The Celebration will include a Symposium led by Olin Stephens focusing on Rod Stephens Mustang and the early days of New York 32 racing. We expect at least five NY 32's to be in Castine and hope that present and former NY 32 owners and crew -- and other NY 32 fans -- will join us to share reminiscences and good cheer.
