Looking for a particular boat manufacture


Greetings,

Having a challenge to my knowledge of boat manufactures. Looking for the complete name of a older fiberglass trawler manufacture. About the 70's maybe early 80s. I believe the name of the manufacture begins with "HEPO---- I recall the name having 7 or 8 letters and if to guess a Greece sounding name. They build boats in the CHB class/models Not CHB or that line of similar trawlers just that design and were 36 to 44 foot range. I believe they were of Taiwan or far East construction.
Enough clues?
Thanks,
Al-Ketchikan, (Bridge to Nowhere) Alaska

I remember that import name, although I thought it started "Hipo". Was unsuccessful when I searched it.
