Very true Christian Van H
. I guess I did not write that clearly enough. I meant that in the USA some yards (meaning brands) are more popular while in Europe
other brands are more popular. I consider Hylas
, Tayana, and Passport yards that are popular in USA. Of course they are not located in the USA. Hylas
and Tayana are out of Taiwan
. Passport used to be out of Hong Kong
and now mainland China
. Please correct me if I am wrong these locations. Oyster
is somewhat popular in the USA, but I might also group her with Najad
, Hallberg-Rassy, and the other yachts you see more in Europe
than the USA. This popularity is what I refered to.
, you are right, and I should have included Ta Shing. I especially like their classic Mason designs and Taswell 49. I forgot them probably because as you say they focus on Norhavn trawlers (which are excellent), and I was thinking of sailboats. I respectfully disagree about the finish and performance characteristics of Hylas, Passport, and Tayana. These are all quality yards.
