Beam is still wrong - it's not 12.5'.  Its 10.75.

the ridas factory produces the following other models as well: Ridas 46 (Deck Salon/ racer), Ridas 33, Ridas 31 and ridas 26. All of these and the 35 can be found on: ridasyacht.com

Ridas 35:
The first one built was in 1996.
The sail area is 70 square metres.
The ballast is, as I said 2.1 tonnes

Would you like to add/correct these values on the ridas 35 page?

Thank you

FYI the beam is still incorrectly listed as 12.5 foot.   Should be 10.75.

Greetings All: I wrote a post on the S&S/Prestige 36 a few years ago. Not only do I still have the boat, but I've spent time at Mystic Seaport's S&S archive looking over its folder.
If it still matters to anyone, I'm a few months away from finishing the restoration of this particular iteration of the design (I believe it was hull#3 from Prestige Yachts, but still trying to corroborate that). I'd be glad to add to the pool of information on it.

More important, I think Craig does indeed deserve a good deal more credit for work done -- because this design was an updated, late-born child of an SORC syndicate boat that he designed in 1974. At the time, the New York Times ran a piece (Google Craig Walters, NYT SORC 1974) which cited Craig as a new "brilliant designer" on the scene. By then, he had already worked for Charlie Morgan, but yet to join S&S.

I have more history, and with qualified help have pulled the boat apart and put it back to together, for the better, I hope. The result is a design originally conceived in 1974, tweaked and marketed again in 1982 to Australia -- where IOR boats had a greater longevity. In the Western Australia press, one or these was cited for its strength, speed and as a "big Sister" to the renowned S&S 34. Have no idea what happened with Holiday, and there's no evidence of U.S. yard involvement in any construction. There are not many left in Asia, but those that exist are still winning races.

What I don't have is much direct historical information from Australia -- which is what really matters. Now have some names and will be chasing people down over the next several weeks.

Seems to me it's important to figure out where the remaining Prestige 36/S&S 36s are. A couple of years ago I knew of two others, but they've left the radar screen. The rig in this case is a little different from the original. But having singlehanded her up the New England coast and in recent sea trials (she'll be back in the spring), am incredibly impressed by how balanced and remarkably fast she is. That 720sq feet of sail area is worth its weight.

Any comments or additions most welcome. And thanks for patience with such a long post!

I know there are others, but the Dolphin 24, (AKA: Yankee Dolphin) comes to mind. The Dolphin is a full-keel with centerboard housed inside the keel. Also, can't forget the TARTAN 27.

Class name is "Cape Cod Mercury" and is only 15', not 17'. Nice boats!
I checked the CCSB web site, no Class Association listed.
