That is the 525, not the 1/4 tonner.

Here is the Santana 1/4 jobby but it is not what the poster has. Hmmm.

yeah, that was the 525, my mistake. But even the quarter-tinnner you posted is clearly not the same boat.

It's certainly a puzzle.

Wasted an hour or so today looking at small old sloops on Yachtworld. I must have better things to do, like go to the liquor store as the December darkness closes in. Priorities are important.

CYA

I'm in salt lake city ut home of the saltiest salors around the boat was bought here in utah from a guy that knew nothing about it. I spent an hour looking for the hin and nothing I went over the whole boat. I will post some more pictures on my site and maybe we can figure something out. Thank you guys so much for helping me out. You guys rock. I will send a check for 5 bucks to who ever figures it out for me cause it would be a big help in registering the boat.

Looks like it could be a small Dufour. Here's a pick of the 1800 under sail, which is 25ft.
I'm not aware of a 21ft version, but try this website for info. Dufour 1800

You don't have to look "all over the boat" for the HIN. It's located on the starboard transom. If the boat doesn't have one, then we can safely assume EITHER it's hot and the ID number was removed, or it was built before 1972 when they were required on all boats.

HIN Info here: http://www.uscgboating.org/recalls/mic_database.htm

And for the REAL nautical geek see here:

Jon:
That Formula 21 is not even close. I do not think it is a Dufour either.
Have you tried tracing the name of the boat and going back to check race records from when it was a pup. Maybe there is some race record that you could work backwads from to find the builder. A lot of race entry sheets list the type of boat.

Can you tell if the boat came out of a female mold? How about the deck?
I still think it could be a one off.

If that's not an S2, I'll eat it. I poked around the net and couldn't find a picture to verify it, but there are various S2 owner sites out there and sending a picture to one of them might solve it for you.

The overall lines, the perforated rail around the deck, the shape of the transom, etc. all make me think it's an S2, made in Holland Michigan.

S2 used do like to use a lot of sort of a lightweight carpet/frabric glued all over the interiors of their boats. If you have a bunch of that, it could be another indicator that it's an S2.
