I don't know if they ever had a logo like that but there was an inflatable maker in the 1970s called Beaufort.

Beaufort - I believe that was the lifejacket manufacturer by the same name.

Beaufort

Beaufort if I remember used to manufacture liferafts mainly for the commercial sector but also for the leisure market. I am sure they also made other product again mainly for the commercial sector but canít think what, so life jackets would make sense. I think they are still around but they possibly merged with somebody was it RFD. It is some time since I was involved in that sort of thing. However that logo doesnít seem familiar so perhaps we are barking up the wrong tree.

Dont think Beaufort used a leisure type logo on any of their stuff ,and i dont recall Bombard using that style either

just had a quick look through a few misc boating mags from the 70s and 80s and i have seen a few similar B logos but they are usually supplier logo stickers rather than a builders one .
have a feeling its not british ,
ill have a look through a few more mags over the week end so might find it somewhere .

attached pic ,,,,,, magazine page with a Beafuort advert from 1977.
