Design 27 - Stormy Weather

This is clearly one of the favorites in our archives. This is most likely due to the fact that on numerous occasions Olin Stephens stated that this was his favorite Sparkman & Stephens design.

Stormy Weather was tank tested at the Stevens Institute in a swimming pool, even before the official towing tank was open. She was an improvement the Dorade design. Built by Henry Nevins of City Island, New York, she was launched in 1934.
