Re: rhodes Commodore swiftsure

I have never heard of the Rhodes Commodores but i am familiar with the Rhodes Swiftshore. The Swiftsures were built at the Lensch yard in Holland and sold as early Seafarers in the US. They were very well constructed and finished compared to most American built boats of that era. They sailed well, but were slow as compared to other boats of that era like the Rhodes designed Vanguard or the Tripp designed Galaxy.
