Bart also reports another Aphrodite, Babe, located in the same area. Babe has a red stribe on the side and no waterline. Thanx Bart.

United Kingdom

T.C.Ridyard in the UK reports at least four Aphrodites on the British Islands. There are rumours of a few more unidentified boats. Total in the UK may very well be 8 or more...

In the Harwich area there is at least three known boats. Some of these are out of class, since they have carbon fibre masts and new keels. 

There's no details to be found on clubs and organisations, but a few boats are on the boatlist with contact info.

US Rumours

According to Steve K of the Electra (Vancouver, Canada) there's an Aphrodite in San Fransisco, another one in Michigan (on the Great Lakes).

According to James Blume of the Nemesis (Dallas, Texas) Aphrodite populations exists in Chicago and Annapolis. Also there's two boats in Texas. One is the Nemesis, the other one is currently unknown.

In the late 1970's, early 1980's Ned and Brian Johnson imported 29 Aphrodites to North America under the company name Aphrodite North America. Eventually a small Pacific Fleet was established. The Shearwater (Hull 23) was his personal boat at that time. Thanx to Lewis R. Townsend for this info.
