Historical:

In 1935 the New York Yacht Club were looking to replace the Herreshoff NY 30s. The NYYC’s requirements were that the vessel should be passage worthy, graceful, and fast. Olin Stephens designed and the Nevis Shipyard built the NY 32 with oak frames (1 5/8″ on 8″ centers), heavy Philippine mahogany planking, and a low, solid deck house, all without sacrificing speed or beauty.

Rod Stephens bought Mustang in 1946, and owned her for 32 years.
