I guess you are right. I looked for Hunter 40 designed by...and the only name that turn in was Steck but I checked better and they were referring to a Hunter 40 from the 80's. I am going to edit the post.

Anyway the point is valid. It seems even worst. All big brands have in house architects but they do not design the boats they make the interface between what the brand wants and the best world Architectural Naval offices that actually design the boats. They also help in the building, adjusting small details and modifying small things.

Thanks!
