I'm trying to work out who designed the smart looking ketch. Maybe someone has already worked it out? (I haven't read all the comments yet)

While looking I came across this yacht designed by "Rhodes" and was listed in Yachtworld
1935 Rhodes Narwhal Ketch

Yes, following the same long, lean principles as the sailboats. I followed his blog during their builds, great design and execution.

Johann Tanzer. He built boats that were tough and fast. The Tanzer 22 was a game changer, a legendary boat. Over 2200 built! And still a great boat, half a century later... most of them still sailing.

Thanks. 249K. If Jim buys it for me I promise to throw the mizzen away. Also the wheel has to go for sure. Then everyone's happy.

Any as long as it floats. Just like a woman, there is beauty in all of them.

Holman and Pye, Laurent Giles, Robert Clark.

Ray Wall who was head designer at Camper & Nicholson before moving to Canada and becoming head designer at Canadian Sailcraft. He designed many great boats but they were under the Camper & Nicholson name.

Re: Who's you favorite yacht architect?

Finally someone mentioned Philip Rhodes for monohulls. Jim Brown for trimarans.
