“Perhaps the most notable of the late fin keelers were the so-called
Newport one-design Thirties. They came out in 1896 and were forty-two
feet O.A., twenty-nine feet six inches W.L., eight feet four inches
beam, and seven feet one inch draft. They cost $2,850 complete,
including one suit of sails and this was considered expensive then, but
it is doubtful if any builder could duplicate one of them today for
$25,000. They were beautifully built, double planked with mahogany over
cedar, and each frame was steamed over a separate mold so that many
consider them the first really one-design class with perhaps little or
no variation in their speeds, weights, or dimensions. … It was in the
Newport Thirties that some of our best sailors, both amateur and
professional, got their training, and some of both afterward graduated
into the New York Yacht Club Seventy-foot Class.” – L. Francis Herreshoff, The Wizard of Bristol
