Definitely not a Gulf 32. It was at least 35'+ and there are enough Gulf 32s in Olympia that I recognize them on site.

I think the Truant 37 / 370 guess is correct. The lines look the same. A little research says that they built a small number of Truant 33s and 37s on Saltspring Island in the Gulf Islands. This would make sense considering I took this photo a day's sail away from there.

The designer was Bill Garden. The plans were sold to Park Isle Marine which continues to offer a (somewhat) similar 37' pilothouse.

What a beaut!

Thanks, everyone.

Look close again-Same transom! The amount of windows means nothing. It could be a different interior or year design. even the same cap rail and bulwalk along the cabin.

Re: ID this Boat

Certainly looks like a Truant to me. Perhaps a newer one.

Re: ID this Boat

It would make a good PNW boat. Probably already has a heater. If it has the pathfinder 42 hp motor (like the one on YW), some parts are not available any more but can be retrofitted with VW stuff. And the timing belt/idler has to be maintained.

A good survey wood be in order!

Re: ID this Boat

It looks like a Tayana pilot house to me... But there are tons of similar looking vessels..

Re: ID this Boat

Wasn't implying it was a Gulfstar, just using a Gulfstar HIN as an example.
Good looking boat, too bulky looking for a Gulfstar, plus it has a pilothouse...

You are right, I was wrong. I took a closer look at the mystery transom and while I think it might be a bit ambiuous what type of transom it has I think you are right.

I saw two photos of a Truant 370 that convinced me the mystery boat is one.

One photo showed the same compound curve of the stern profile.

The other photo showed the boat from an oblique angle and you could see the bulwark was shin high running forward from the cockpit until the front end of the pilothouse where it drops down to ankle high. Just before the step down there are 3 cutouts in the shin high bulwark. If you look very closely at the mystery boat photo you can just make out those 3 cutouts.

Re: ID this Boat

I've always thought that the mid-30s pilothouse designs were very clever. Small enough to be easily handled, large enough for comfortable cruising & living, with the great benefit of inside steering on some. Not just for the cold climate areas, but anywhere, at any time one would wish to get away from weather or sun. In March of this year I spent 6 days in Tad Robert's office, doing his "short course"(a course that I highly recommend). My avatar shows the subject of those 6 days(sans cockpit & fixtures that I added later). I took his course to re-inspire my desire for design. One of the most fascinating aspects of my visit to Tad's was viewing his extensive reference library, part of which was purchased from Ted Brewer. While Tad explained that he had much more in a storage locker, with the resources at hand, he could show me drawings & data for any boat I mentioned, however obscure.

One of my favourite pilothouse designs is this one, due to the open aft end of the 'house:

Re: ID this Boat

It certainly looks like a Truant, but roughly calculating measurements I would estimate that the mystery boat is 41/42 feet LOA. It looks very much like a Bill Garden design but I can find no reference to his specific designs on the Interent but there is a book available on all his designs if anyone has it.
