Dorade yawl 1931. 1:20 Scale. 856mm

Ref: 1605

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."
