Guess i known the brand since a kid(watching too much Jack Cousteaou on TV), but never paid much attention on the logo. I like the colour but the font and layout is too cluttered also to mine taste.

Maybe a new director in marketing dpt, then using a "cheap" conusltancy company spending a fortune on the whole process.... I think it's strange that they use simultaneusly old an new logo, thay should have done the change worldwide at the same time. It will take a loooong time before getting any return on investment for this process.

fun on a boat is inversely proportional to size...sort of anyway

The split in the ownership between milpro and recreational may well have forced the logo change for the recreational side; now part of OpenGate Private Equity ? As the buyer the key asset would be the brand name but then that would also be the case for milpro, so differentiating the logo is the obvious route, i would have thought?

I also like it. Far more contempory, though I'd describe the old one as being more 1982 than 2002!

The 'D' is a clever touch too imho.
