Notes

Known as S&S design # 1959 and several versions were built by a number of yards around the world. The version built by Aquafibre (UK) only differed in having a slightly raised doghouse, while the Australian version (built by Swarbrick Brothers) has an uninterrupted cabin trunk. A later Mark II version has an updated keel and rudder-skeg configuration. The Aquafibre hulls were often finished by other yards. Some were exported to the US and sold as the PALMER JOHNSON 34.
