Identify these Boats (2 Ketch, 1 Sloop)

Hi everyone. I'm not a sailor just someone who loves sailboats and life by the water. Once moved out to San Francisco in about a month or so I hope to jump head first into some sailing lessons.

I have pictures of 3 boats that I was hoping everyone could help me identify.

The first as per race registrations appears to be a Swan but I was hoping someone might know the length and model year.

Second is a boat that is currently berthed at a wharf close to my apartment in Boston. I was told that it is a custom build and approximately 78 feet long. Any idea who the designer and builder may be.

Third photo was taken in Hilton Head Island, SC. I know nothing of this sailboat other than it caught my eye and appeared to be in great condition.

Thanks for you help.

Welcome to CF.

It's my thinking the third boat (dark hull from aft) is a schooner from the position of the masts.

I also thought the second one looked like an Oyster.

The first is a Swan around 60 ft. The third looks like a reproduction of a schooner around 70 ft.

Here's a pretty similar Swan 60. The boat is too old to be a 601.

If the 2nd were a Oyster would it have 2 masts? I thought that all Oyster's were sloops...

The schooner is indeed beautiful.

The 3rd boat is moored in Harbor Town, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
