Notes

S&S design #1235.
Originally promoted as the NEW HORIZONS 25.
This was S&S’s first production sailboat designed as an ALL fiberglass small cruiser.
Ray Green, a pioneer in the field, as the builder, made a perfect fit.
Many of the components for the interior, etc, were molded fiberglass, a practice that did not become common for a number of years to come.
