"Ventana" means window in Spanish and she is truly our
Window to See the World
About Ventana's Name and Logo
Since Rob's days in junior high school when his 3rd floor math class windows gave him a view of the snowcapped Rocky Mountains where he would rather have been he has always liked the concept of how a window could transport you from one world to another. What better analogy for our boat which would bring us to distant lands. The word in Spanish has the magic of a foreign language and a lyrical ring we enjoyed.
Dee had toyed with several logo design concepts though had never finalized them. After 5 years of cruising we chanced to be in Guatemala where we befriended two beautiful sisters. Following a weekend sailing on Ventana the younger sister, a graphic designer named Brenda Ciraiz presented us with this wonderful logo.
Dee later went on to make a needlepoint of the design adding stars overhead in the night sky. Click the photo below to enlarge it. The back button on your browser will return you here.
