Dorade is a famous 52ft yacht, one of the best deigns from Olin Stephens of S&S. Launched in 1930 it was one of the fastest boats of its time and even today able to win in compensated time the last TransPac leaving behind some more modern boats, but being beaten in real time for example by a First 40 and a X41. Some great images of the boat on that race:

And another not less interesting movie, this one shoot in 1925!!! with some Jclass boats racing with their original huge gaff rigs. Beautiful images of another era:
