Sparkman Stephens 30 - Wins Boat of the Year 2013

SAILING WORLD magazine called her "untouchable".

Bluenose Yacht Sales with sales offices in Newport, Rhode Island, and South Portland, Maine was recently awarded Boat of the Year 2013 by SAILING WORLD magazine for its entry of the Sparkman Stephens 30. Claimed by the judges to be "untouchable" compared to the other entrants, the S&S 30 has again demonstrated why Olin Stephens was such a master of yacht design. The S&S 30, originally designed in 1935 was named "BABE" and went on to win several on and off-shore races in Florida. The Sparkman Stephens design team, headed by Brendan Abbott helped Olin realize one of his last requests by reintroducing the new "BABE" with a modern underbody, well engineered construction plans and incorporating efficient boat building technology.

The Sparkman Stephens 30 was launched in September 2012 and participated in the Newport Boat Show and the Annapolis Boat show with great success and will be available for showings at the New England Boat show in Feb. 2013.

Bluenose Yacht Sales, one of New England's leading broker dealers for used yachts as well as representing Beneteau Group's Jeanneau and CNB Bordeaux 60 brands combined with the new S&S 30, Grand Soleil, Cabo Rico, and the E33, is honored by this award from one of the leading sailing magazines in the United States. In 2012, the Jeanneau 379 won a similar award from Cruising World magazine and as a Jeanneau dealer, Bluenose Yacht Sales has continued to be a leading New England yacht dealer due to excellence in service and customer support.

The Sparkman Stephens 30 is being distributed world wide by Bluenose Yachts and they are excited about an expanding dealer network including Europe for 2013. This Boat of the Year award combined with the recent SAIL magazine glowing review affirms all of the reasons why Rhode Island remains one of the best locations for design, engineering and construction of this new award winning, beautiful daysailor.
