“Whatever kind of vessel he produced, it invariably had the look of rightness about it. His sailing yachts in particular, with their beautifully proportioned hulls and graceful sheerlines, are works of true design harmony…. Rhodes will be remembered best for these distinguished  thoroughbred yachts. They are not only superbly functional, but they also have an elegance and ageless beauty that is all too rare in yacht design today.”
