What boat is in this movie

In the movie "Message in a bottle" what kind of boat is the first boat in the movie where she is looking to meet Garet on the docks? It's a fiberglass boat, looks to be around the 40' range and a blue water cruiser. My wife and I are starting to look for blue water cruisers and we're just wondering what kind of boat she is.

Re: What boat is in this movie

Yes, I found info on that boat, but early in the movie there was a seen where she walks down to the docks and talks to a guy working on his boat and she asks him if he works on boats and he directs her to Garret. Thats the boat i'm curious about. Wooden boats are nice, but not really what i'm looking for.

"That boat" is not a good enough description to work from

I haven't seen the movie.

I know the scene you are talking about. Where he was putting the wheel back onto the pedestal. To be honest, I didn't see enough of the boat in that scene to know.
