Who Drew the Challenger Lines


Oct 10, 2011
The lines drawing for the Challenger was done by RMW but Niels Helleberg does not know who that is. Does anyone know who RMW might be?

Alden Caravelle 42 / Northern European waters
What a good question; amazing it hasn't arisen before. If Niels doesn't know, it's going to be a tough one to answer...

Niels told me that Clifford Swaine, who worked for the company from the 1920's through 1970's, drew the Caravelle.

Googling Clifford Swaine + Alden reveals a lot more about him than it would have even 5 years ago. Including:
