The 75th anniversary of the NY32 Class, design #125, will be celebrated this coming weekend with a dinner at the New York Yacht Club in Newport, Rhode Island. After winning a design competition from the New York Yacht Club for a new one-design class, 20 original boats were built by Nevins of City Island at a cost of $11,000 each.
As Olin once said "We set out to design a good cruiser/racer with good all-around form, guided by the lines of Dorade, Stormy Weather and Edlu, and emphasized seaworthiness rather than around-the-mark agility."
The following boats will be represented at the Newport dinner:
Night Heron, #16
Here are the plans.
