Re: Interesting Sailboats

Andrzej Skrzat is not the only famous polish NA, but definitely he is most recognised almost world-wide. For longest time, he fought "fierce battles" with Henryk Jaszczewski (His boats), and won after design of Tango 730, which very much literally left the competition behind. Jaszczewski has since retired. Another well known "veteran" is Jerzy Piesniewski, but he is mostly designing boats for internal market in Poland. On the other side, there are young NA such as Wojtek Spisak, who has designed Scandinavia line of boats, of which you have posted Scandinavia 30. There are others, but I can't recall their names. Oh, wait, Tomasz Siwik of TES Yachts has been building boats since late 70s.

Makes such as Delphia, Galeon, Antilla, Maxus, Phobos, Libra or Focus are at this moment fairly well recognised in Europe and featured at major boat shows in Europe. But I would say this only represents (my estimate) only about 20% of the market sales. The rest is building hulls/full vessels for well established builders, both sail and power. Brunswick Marine representing brands such as Bayliner and Quicksilver is building their boats in Poland, among other known "western" builders.
