    Default Do you know this boatbuilder\'s logo

    Parked next to a very nice small boat this weekend. Nobody aboard to tell me what it was. This was the builders insignia. Anyone know what it is?

    Next time, it'll all be different.

    It looks like an adapted Christian 'fish' symbol to me.

    the "Flaired " Bow could be a Varne 27.
    are you sure the logo is actually the designers ??????????

    The boat is a modern build, certainly not a Varne 27. I'll post a (poor) pic of it shortly, but I'm interested to see if anybody knows the logo (which doesn't look 'custom' to the boat). She's called Rhapsody, and is on C pontoon at Mercury Marina.

    It's not Archembault(sp?) is it?

    No, I checked that.

    Here's the boat. I'd guess about 25' LOA.

    Looks pretty whatever she is.

    My only comment, my own yacht has C S intertwined in a similar position at the for'ard end of the coachline, nothing to do with builder, just the initials of her name [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    That looks very American to me, particularly with the Hoyt jib boom. I think it may be an Alerion (28?). If it is, it is a design Andrew Bray (he of YW) was very interested in at one time. If he's on line he may conform (or deny, of course)

    JJ I think you've got it. I'm surprised it's 28' - definitely looked a little smaller than my Twister which was parked next door.
