Viksund? Viksand? Dutch? Something like that. I think.

Re: Help identify this boat

Is that a steel hull?

Kinda reminds me of a Bruce Roberts design, maybe one of the Sprays.

*Specifically of a Roberts 370D, but it is hard for me to judge the LOA on the vessel in question from the pictures.

But I'm not uber experienced in boat ID...so just throwing that out there

Missing a couple pics ...will add soon..more info

The boat is grp, full external keel, canoe stern, big 3 blade (20"+) prop, relatively short mast, secondary(?) keels approx 1/4 length on bilges.

Dont think any of the Buccaneers were canoe sterned.

Re: Help identify this boat

Check the transom for the boat's HIN. It contains the code for the manufacturer and the date of manufacture.

Looks like a Finsailer 29 to me.

FINNSAILER 29 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com



Built by Fiskars in Finland. I have a 38 and have been impressed with the build quality.

Re: Help identify this boat

That is it, Finsailer.
Going after the owner to feel him out. Rumour has it has been dry for a few years but did an Atlantic crossing at least once.
THANKS.
