"The S&S 39 is a strong and comfortable at sea, well laid out below deck an in my opinion the prettiest IOR yacht ever designed. She has a fine deep hull with a medium size keel, the rudder mounted on a strong skeg, and a deep bustle tapering into narrow stern sections. " Saling magazine, December 1981.
