Of course what boat builder would not like to get nice

fan mail from owners.  On the other hand, as shoppers, we find that testimonials, direct to a manufacturer, not that reassuring.  But (using our 'on the other hand' to make the point here) hearing or reading comments between owners or owners and prospects, impresses us.  You do not have to read any of these types of good things owners say since they all basically says what we say:  The Rhodes is one hell of a boat - if not the best hell of a 22 on the sailboat market today.  


Read If you have the time and the inclination.  We will keep adding as we run across them - for the hell of it. 


"I wholeheartedly agree.  Everything about this boat is amazing.  Like the Timex watches of the sea, takes awailing and keeps on sailing."  


"The key thing is that my wife really likes eveything about the boat - the looks, that it's spacious and comfortable both in the cockpit and the cabin, the ease of sailing it, the bimini top, etc."


"The New Traveler is super"
"The new traveler joy increases.  I sailed with my buddy today in trying wind conditions.  He is not a Rhodie, not his fault.  But as a seasoned sailor he was impressed with every aspect of this new traveler - he was unable to contain his amazement."
"Received my new traveler.  Wow, what a device."
"GB has nailed it again.  The new traveler has one continuous line you simply push or pull. Improved sail shape and performance.  The new traveler with the  new 130 genoa, I am one happy sailor."

These Rhodes owners are talking about the uniquely new Rhodes traveler based on obverse mechanical advantage.  To see the only photo available so far click on    http://www.usedrhodes.com/newsystuff.html


"launched,  motored to mooring, raised mast and took first sail of season. ..furling lines worked perfectly, as did everything else.  my third year and it just keeps getting better"


"Hi all. Been sailing since mid May in winds from 3 to 18 mph - boat performs flawlessly under all conditions."

“A lot of the work Stan is doing these days is Recycled and the boats come out looking like new. 

I kid you not.  My boat looks brand new.  Even the Owner's Manual is out of this world. I read ​and enjoyed every word." 

Eaves droppings (three owners talking to a sailboat shopper): 

​     "Tom, you are on the right track.  The Rhodes will take you anywhere.  I made the trip to the Bahamas.  Crossed the Gulf Stream out of Homestead to Bimini and then on across the Great Bahama Bank to the Berry Islands.  Trip of a lifetime."

 “my new boat just arrived and it sails wonderfully “ 


 “as I start my second season I’m looking forward 

 to learning more about this amazing boat.”

“My marina on Kerr Lake, NC is abuzz with gossip about my 87 recycled Rhodes - there are often crowds around the boat admiring her lines and features.  I passed a 35 footer last week (of course he only was under way with his main and small jib) and the captain enthusiastically shouted, ‘Hey, a Rhodes 22 huh?  Beautiful boat‘ and so it goes”.
