Design 10 - Cherokee

Cherokee was the 6th of the 39 six-meter racing yachts designed by Sparkman & Stephens. She was built by Henry Nevins of City Island, New York and launched in 1930. Cherokee was considered one of the best of the S&S six-meters. She was built for Herman F. Whiton, who would become an avid six-meter champion and repeat customer for S&S.

In 2009 a replica was built by the Museum of Yachting in Newport, Rhode Island. Click here to see some images and learn more about it.

Here are the plans.

LOA 37'-3"
LWL 23'-4"
