Dorade Fastnet Yacht 1931

Dorade is considered the very first modern yacht.

It appeared in Europe in 1931 at the Fastnet, sailed by the two Stephens brothers Rod and Olin.

At first sight Dorade seemed to be too thin and delicate even though it won the Transatlantic Regata doubling Fastned first, all alone.

In 1932 it won the Bermuda regata and in 1933 it defeated all participants the Fastnet.

At that time the "Times" entitled it as "the smallest amazing yacht of the Ocean regata
ever built."

Amati's easy-to-build kit features one-piece ABS plastic hull fitted with a laser cut wooden interior structure.

The wooden deck is covered with individual planking strips.

A wealth of wooden and turned brass fittings, photo-etched brass detailing, two diameters of rigging line, Dacron sailcloth and wooden masts provide authentic detailing.

Four sheets of plans and illustrated instruction manual make building trouble-free.

Experienced modelers can equip this fabulous model for radio control.
