Design 108 - Dorado


This 55' fisherman was designed in 1935. Three boats were built to this design by Franklin G. Post & Son of Mystic, Connecticut and launched in '36 and '37. Unfortunately we don't have any small scale study plans handy for this design but the general arrangement plan is included in the following article. Please double click for readable view.

Hull number 2, named Porpoise, was configured as a motoryacht and quite a bit different than her predecessor. Here she is.


And an article about her. As always double click for a bigger view.

And finally here's hull number 3, Seahorse.
