Design 2 - Kalmia

This little sloop of 30' length overall was really the first paying customer for the newly formed Sparkman & Stephens as design #1 was for a class of boats (with hopeful future sales). She was built for a Mr. Arthur Hatch, constructed by Minneford Yacht Yard of City Island, New York and launched in 1929. Unfortunately we can't seem to find a lot of information about this boat in our files.

Here are the plans.

Here's the body plan. It's interesting to study such an early design.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 30'-0"
LWL 20'-0"
Beam 7'-6"
Draft 4'-9"
