1959-C2 - S&S 34 by Swarbrick


We have discussed the S&S 34 before and also the model licensed for sale in the United States, the Palmer Johnson 34.  We don't know exactly how many of these popular boats have been built, only that in the first year of production at Winfield & Partners (later known as Aqua Fibre), 39 contracts were signed.


The boat shown here is yet another version, built by Swarbrick of Western Australia and designated as Sparkman & Stephens design #1959-C2.  The images shown are of a launch sequence of a new boat from the early 1980s.  We don't know exactly how many were built by Swarbrick at that time either.

Here is an interesting article from the Italian magazine Yachting Quarterly about the S&S 34 design in general, in Olin Stephens' own words.


Any way, back to Swarbrick.  Did you know these boat are again in production and available from Swarbrick?  Here's a brief article about the subject from Cruising World magazine.  As always please double click for zoom.
