Pros:
Cons:


















This is a good heavy fiberglass sloop, she has a full keel with center-board.She is 24'2"LOA,LWL19' ,7'8"Beam and draws 2'10" board up{5'2" board down}.Disp.4250lbs.
There is sleeping room for 5{2 doubles and one single}.
Auxillary power is Honda 8 hp 4stroke in the Lazarette.We have fitted a Hood roller furler with a 135% Genoa and this works very well.She sails very well and is very seakindly. We have cruised from Oklahoma to Texas via rivers and coast and have been very happy with the boat all the way.Next stop Florida.

Pros:
Cons:

Designed By Olin Stephens (that just about says it all as far as I'm concerned, and why I bought the boat...)in 1959 for MORC racing & limited cruising. Good performance. Seaworthy, seakindly. Even now, while she's hauled out for the Winter, I can spend hours just admiring her hull lines. "Modern" boats nearby look like fat tubby tankers compared to the Dolphin IMHO. True, they have more headroom, but when they're snuggled to their docks because it's too rough for them, the Dolphin is out playing in the whitecaps. ;-)

Pros:
Cons:

This boat is a Sparkman & Stephens designed boat. It is quite heavily built, but it sails extremely well even in rough seas. Everyone who sees her asks if she is a 26 or 28 footer. The outboard lives in a sail drive locker in the rear. I have a 10 hp Honda which pushes her along quite nicely. She steers rather poorly in reverse if you go too slow, but this is really the only item I could possibly complain about this boat. The centerboard is stuck up so I dont use it. She sails fine anyway. I have a picture of my boat here :

I would say I am extremely pleased with this boat and would give it high marks all around.
