    There is no such thing as Formosa by Peterson.

    The Formosa 46s are a bastardization of the famous Kelly Peterson 44, with some distance added between the stations of the linesplan (stolen from the rightful owners) and other changes.

    None of the changes to the design were overseen or approved by Peterson. He was not paid for the use of his linesplan by that builder.

    The quality of the build was terrible, not something Peterson would be associated with.

    The boat in the picture looks like a westsail 42.
