Cat 22/Bayliner US25, Cat 25?

Regarding an earlier post on this thread. The "US25" probably has "US Yachts" on either side of the cabin, or did, and this boat should not be confused with Bayliner''s "Buccaneer" line of boats which were not at all suitable for buccaneering, or sailing, for that matter. To my knowledge, all of the US Yachts (several sizes) were designed by Doug Peterson and were good performers. Mr. Peterson has designed some incredible race boats over the years and still is (America''s Cup). The center cockpit Buccaneer 26 makes a decent small liveaboard, but the US25 is still competitive under PHRF; rating faster than the Catalina 25. There are quite a few of both here in the Seattle area (Bayliner country) and I used to have to race against both models when I owned a Northstar 500.
