Most boats I know have the name and home port in some fashion painted or stickered on.
This isn’t a requirement, but it is a great way to tell people a little bit about the boat and where it’s from.
Ava Chantel is the name that came on my boat and the owner didn’t really know the origin. The name grew on me and in my mind I envisioned some stage dancer of the 20’s or 30’s. Flamboyant, a bit exotic and she would have had peacock feathers in all the right places.
I enlisted the design talents of Sarah, our illustrator, to come up with a logo to capture that idea.
The emblem you see on Ava’s transom is the result of Sarah's efforts and will be painted on this summer.
She will be an eye catcher!
