ID this Yacht or I Scuttle Her

So, boat experts, what boat is under this grime? Fin keel, Skeg hung rudder. Looks like an IOR nightmare hull form. No HIN found.

Thanks in advance.

A bit of elbow grease and she'll be as new. Well maybe a good bit of elbow grease and a lot of love...

Re: ID this Yacht or I Scuttle Her

Forward sections of cabin kind of detract from IOR ...BUT maybe an IOR with a aftermarket cabin added to it?

I think there's a degree of homebuilt or modified possibly.....

Interesting Cheers

Re: ID this Yacht or I Scuttle Her

Not that many older boats had HIN's especially low volume yards.

Is it GRP, Foam, cold moulded????

Nothing ior about that unless she is early 70s. I am a racer in the quarter tonner class and am well familar with the late stage "ior disease". Im even in the Isle of wight as we speak racing i the quarter tonner cup and round island race on a early 80s and now irc optimized quarter tonner.

IOR usually had oil can front and rear ends with huge beams, nose down trims, scoops at least 30 cm o er the water etc....

She just looks like an early 80s coastal cruiser? I could be totally wrong and it wouldnt be the first time. More pics from different angles and some specs such as length would help.

Yea, fun to race, not so fun to just sail on

Re: ID this Yacht or I Scuttle Her

If you are not too far from Oz, I would suggest it might be an Endeavour Half Tonner.
Endeavour Yachts was churning out 24 and 26 footers in the 70's, but they also made a boat around 30' as well.

The cabin and cockpit would be the giveaway. Any more pics?

Strange bow, looks like they built up from an old mould to get a bit more freeboard.

I was thinking a Bruce Roberts design.

Re: ID this Yacht or I Scuttle Her

Has echos of a She 31 - but mostly to me looks generic from the 1970's. Might not be IOR, but probably inspired by that thinking - for the sales / marketing if nothing else.
