48' S&S Motorsailer "Bird of Passage"

I have been trying to track down this "favorite" vessel that I owned in the 1980's. She's was said to be in the Baltic area a few years ago but may be back in the US now. She is US documented. Would appreciate your help if anyone has sighted her lately. Bird of Passage was designed by Sparkman & Stephens for NYYC Commodore Percy Chubb in the 1970's--originally intended for Pacific cruising (unrealized) with a Gardner diesel and a range 5000 miles.

Thanks

That is the vessel. Unfortunately the address is an anonymous "drop" that doesn't acknowledge or forward inquiries. But many thanks anyway.
