Hi, i am unsure if there are 2 designers with the same name. Craigs name can be found on the S&S alumni page at http://www.sparkmanstephens.com/sparkmanstephens/alumni/ it says he designed for them from 1980. The brochure doesn't containg anything about the designer, just says S&S NY as designer. I have found some references online to Craig V. Walters now living in Riverside CT so it may be someone else
Hi, the aussies did shorten the boat at some point and sell it with a winged keel ( http://www.sparkmanandstephensprestige34.com/ )but i believe the true offshore version had a 6'6 racing fin. Its quite possible that it was sold with a wing keel in the 36ft format. The little i know about the life of the design is that the aussies were first to build them but were screwing it up so S&S withdrew their support and it went to holiday yachts in mariveles, phillippines. the deck and hull was formed then they were shipped to the states for fitout and rig. thanks for your effortsJules
Right. But how about the one you are thinking of buying? This is the standard fin keel version?And we think that some of these made it to the US? And they were called HOLIDAY 34?I think this will have to stay in the 'mystery' category. Craig Walters has a brother who was also a designer and boat builder. (David Walters). He did a number of boats called Cambria's. It's possible that he has an Email address. So let me look into that one.
