Yankee 24 "Seahorse"

I own a Yankee 24, "SeaHorse" and am looking to hear from any other owners or folks with knowledge about the builder and the design.

I''ve seen or heard very little regarding this design, there has been a lot more info on the Yankee 30 "Dolphin" an S&S design.

Was their similar influence on the Seahorse, I heard the Seahorse could be a "Roberts"??? design?

Yankee Seahorse

My family owned a Yankee Seahorse in the 1970's. It had a yellow hull color and was a great quality boat, extremely sturdy and rigged with oversize hardware. Designed by Robert Finch, the boat went into production in 1972 by Yankee Yachts in Santa Anna, California, aiming at the 1/4 ton class of racers. Most of their boats, the Dolphin 24, the 26, 30 and 38 were Sparkman and Stephens designs; the Seahorse and the 28 were Robert Finch designs. The owner of Yankee was John Schumaker, whose name is also on many of the sails of those yachts.
We sailed our boat on Saginaw Bay of Lake Huron and sadly sold it after I was done with college and my dad lost his deckhand.
Now, nearly 35 years later, I have purchased a Yankee Dolphin (hull #204). It is interesting that the cabin is a mirror image of the Seahorse, that is everything is on the opposite sides, but otherwise nearly identical.
If you have any questions regarding the Seahorse, my memories are pretty sharp of all the rigging having sailed it for several seasons by myself. Good sailing and I would like to hear more about your boat!

ham... good info, and welcome to Sailnet.

Do try to keep an eye on the post dates as you browse the forums here.. Topknott posted that in 2001, and as it happens hasn't logged on since 2006!

No worries, though.. just a headsup.

Even though the question was asked many years ago, many other people search the web for answers. There are few things worse than searching with a question only to find someone else had the question and it was never answered. Especially in this case where there were only a few boats ever made.

So, I would much rather see someone answer a 20 year old question, then have it sit for eternity unaswered and on the list when someone else is researching.
