The raised saloon and cabin top make it look more like a Ted Irwin or something that Cheoy Lee may have tried for a center cockpit. Not a Whitby or Brewer boat, almost positive of that.

I mean obviously that it has two masts and is a center boarder.

Re: Brand / type sailboat?

To me it looks like her name is Second Nature. Searching for s/v Second Nature pulls up very few results. A guy named Bob owned a boat by that name and posted to a Pearson Triton yahoo group board. The large port lights look similar to those on some Tritons. I can't find a center cockpit ketch Triton that looks exactly the same, though.

Nah, not a Triton, unless it had some major surgery.

And that explains it being a Robertson 27 how?

Haha, Dutch people: "hmm, not Dutch, looks American."
And the Americans: "hmm, not American, Dutch maybe?"

Bottom line: we seem to have some difficulty figuring this one out

To the OP: has another forum produced any results?
If so, pls let us know too

Re: Brand / type sailboat?

Well, since no one has any better ideas, my gut feeling is that is an Asian copy or revision of something, but can't think of what.

Re: Brand / type sailboat?

Looks like a Swan 40 (Sparkman & Stephens). There is also a newer Frers-designed Swan 40, and this is not one.

Re: Brand / type sailboat?

I can tell you for sure that she is tied up in San Sebastian marina on La Gomera in the Canary Islands

Remember it well as it is where we both first learnt to sail there, and got our first two major sailing certs there too, in regular Force 8 to 10 winds, whilst dodging the regular Benchijigua Express of the Fred Olsen Line zipping between San Sebastian and Los Cristianos at 40 knots!

The harbour is as here: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl...AdoQMwgjKAcwBw

Not sure of the boat model (yet), but it is just possible to discern that she is named "Second Nature".....for sure, so another clue

Given the above location, whilst not impossible to be a US model it would seem rather more improbable than her being a EU or Asian model. Looks vaguely like a Chinese built 'Celestial' or even a 'Cheoy Lee' but not close enough......I think, at the moment.

So still working on this......in the meantime I hope I've moved your quest along on the right trail a little.

Fair winds.

Re: Brand / type sailboat?

Some have said smaller, but it looks more like 53' to 55' to me.

Re: Brand / type sailboat?

Just a wild guess on my part, Could it be a Center cockpit Coronado?
