Nelson/Marek Yacht Design, Inc. (N/M) today announced that N/M refit DORADE wins 2013 Transpac overall, PYEWACKET finishes second and other N/M optimized designs take top places.
Dorade, the 1930 design that catapulted Olin Stephens career, is a yacht that N/M has been involved with since 2007. In 2010 N/M was heavily involved with her 2010 refit and designed new spars, tangs, engine installation and rudder as well as optimized her ORR, IRC and PHRF handicaps. In preparation for the 2013 Transpac while in San Diego, N/M orchestrated the varied efforts of Driscoll Boatworks, Traditional Boat Works, Dynamic Marine Machining and Manny Melo Metalworks. The Transpac win is added to her Newport Cabo victory earlier in 2013.
