About Philip Rhodes - the Designer

Philip L. Rhodes, born in 1895,  was a prolific and versatile boat designer, whose career spanned more than five decades from 1919 until his death in 1974. 

His range of design was amazing, from 123'  motorsailers to 7' dinghies, from hydrofoil racers to giant motor yachts. 

His clients ranged from Rockefellers to Sears and Roebuck.  His 12 Meter Weatherly won the America's Cup in 1962.  And, in addition, he designed a wide range of commercial craft.

Rhodes design was also admired by Robert Perry...

Robert Perry, a celebrated yacht designer in his own right, still speaks with awe at the memory of Rhodes’ pinup. Like a model with all the right curves, the Chesapeake 32 reportedly has been used in ads to sell Top-Sider shoes, Rolls-Royces and Hawaii’s Crazy Shirts, and has even graced the cover of Vermont Life.

Robert Perry was a high-school sophomore taking mechanical drawing when he spotted a sailboat on the cover of Popular Boating magazine. It was a Chesapeake 32, designed by Philip Rhodes. "I had never seen anything quite so beautiful designed by man," he would later write. "To my eye there was not an ugly line on that boat. This design is the specific design that made me determine to become a yacht designer. I wanted to design things that beautiful. Still trying."

Builder and notes of interest...

This boat was built at Dan Boat in Denmark.

The Chesapeake 32 is a similar Sistership to the Rhodes...
