Graphics for our boats

Post by Capt UB » Thu Jun 06, 2019 6:56 pm

Are we allowed to make our own tshirt, hat or licence plate with one of the following,

Bateau.com

Designed by Jacques Mertens-Goossens

LM18

Laguna Madre 18

BBC

With the boat graphic....?

I still have my Scout Boats licence tag... I would like to have a Bateau or Laguna Madre 18 tag instead.

Seems like that would be a Merten's property.
My boat build is here -------->

At one point they sold hats and t-shirts. Don't know if they still do. Wait for Jeff to respond.

I did get my boat ID's cut from SS and whilst ordering the name tags, I also ordered the TW 28 code and attached to both sides as below.
IMHO I am honoring the designer to carry his design/model name which also should be a good advertisement for Bateau.

On my brother’s boat I put the FS 19 model designation on the sides.

They used to also have small vinyl graphics of the bateau logo in white or blue. I put the white on my wind shield but didn't get a new one when the windshield was broken.

Captain UB, I really don't think Jacques is going to mind as I have seen the boat names on many, many boats without a word from Jacques. He is on vacation but responding to questions!! Jeff

While I am not currently seeking sponsorship for my boat, I guess I am open to offers if somebody wants to see their decal on there. Image

I am all for it. Jeff now owns the trademarks bateau.com and BoatBuilderCentral.com and I am certain that he will accept. As for my name, please use it. I own Mertens-Goossens Yacht Design and I give you permission to use that name or part of it.
