Junk Rig on St. Johns River

I saw a three-masted junk today sailing down the St. Johns River (Florida, USA) about ten miles south of Jacksonville. It was a beautiful sight, and I was wondering if anyone here knows what boat it is. (I don't want to buy it - just curious.) About 45-50 feet, white sails, dark hull, small pilot house (for a junk) right aft. Might have been one of the junk-rigged Colvins.


It was too far away for a picture - here is the closest I could find:

Colvin design 60' sailboats for sale - Guatemala Yacht Broker - Rio Dulce- Guatemala Yacht Broker - Rio Dulce


As I say, the one I saw was shorter, white sails, different deck plan, but the rigging and the sheer are very similar. Anyone know the boat?

There is one on a mooring at Green Cove Springs Marina. It looks cool up close too. Steel with all the cruising goodies.

Thank you, Ecos. It might well have been coming from GCS.
