What Kind of Boat - Based on Covestripes alone

I am staying in a marina with a beautiful red hull, looks to be about 45-48 ft. monohull. Triple spreader mast, almost looks like an Outbound mixed with a Cambria. The covestripe is a solid gold line and when it reaches the stern of the boat it turns into what looks like four distinct teardrops, 2 upside down and two right side up. Any ideas? Perhaps it is a custom design, but it looks like a serious offshore cruising vessel.

Yes, I've posted here before asking about that site, and alas, cannot find the manufacturer on that site, which leads me to think it may be custom?

Took some photos this morning... I was a bit off about the four teardrops. Here it is:







Sorry, this photo isn't rotated and is the best I could manage.

I suppose it turns out to be a Sabre. I can't believe I didn't think of that. Just unlike the Sabre's I've seen in my life. Thanks for all your help LOL.

It's the 426. The 45 foot models have two portholes aft of the larger coachroof windows, this has one.
