Hummm, I would not be so sure, I have said :

.... so unless something funny is going on, it is a Finot/Conq design.

Funny that nothing is said about it on the Finot/Conq site, on the facebook Structures page a question about who was the designer was not answered and the say nothing about it, nor in the Pogo main site. "


and it seems something funny is going one because on this interview made 3 month ago a main Pogo shipyard man says that they are studding the new Pogo 40 S3 with Verdier



So all this is a bit confusing. Let's wait till the Shipyard says who is the boat designer. In fact Voile magazine attributes those comments (that I had read also on Yacht.de) to Conq assuming he is the designer but it seems they were made by the shipyard.

Maybe they are a bit between the sword and the wall (well, I don't know if that means anything in English, it is an old Portuguese saying but the meaning is obvious) maybe the design was an original Conq one and was modified by Verdier.
