S&S 39 Sailing Characteristics


wondering if anyone has any comments on the S&S 39, particularly it's upwind performance. This design is also known as S&S No 2069 and it is an early 1970's design. I believe it effectively is a big brother to the S&S 34, which was designed around the same time.

Some further info on this design is below. Other details include

Length 38.7 ft
LWL 29.6
Beam 11.8
Draft 6.8
Sail area 692 sq ft
Displacem 8,530kg (18,800lbs)
D/L 324
SA/D 15.7
Vel 1.04
capsize 33.6
