Rawson built boats from the mid 60's until the early 80's. They were manufactured in the PNW of US. I don't know the number of boat built, but they included sail boats, fishing boats and trawler style. Most of the sail boats were designed by William Garden and the trawlers by were designed by Ed Monk senior (2 of the best).

From what I've read and heard, the boats were great designs but had a few shortcomings such as concrete ballast, and soft foredecks.
