"New" Island Gypsy?

I received this from the marketers of the Island Gypsy brand of motor cruisers. It`s coming from Brett Flanagan who was involved selling the Integrity brand in Australia. It borrowed heavily from IG designs, I know, I`ve got one. Integrity is now part of Whitehaven Yachts, I`m guessing Brett Flanagan isn`t part of Whitehaven.

I think it`s a relaunch of a relaunch, it`s not the first time I`ve seen these boats promoted. I imagine they are being built somewhere in Asia, were they built in Australia they`d say so.
Whether they really represent the previous IG genre is a matter for interpretation. One of the boats has, to me, a touch of Halvorsen in the design, from the original single deck boats built 1940-1960.

From their website:
Constructed to meticulous spec at the purpose-built factory in Guangzhou, under the watchful eye of many of the original management and craftspeople involved in building Island Gypsy boats, and not far from the original Island Gypsy facility, the brand comprises two model lines, Newport and Classic.
