Question What is the type or class of this boat?

At first I'd like to say 'Hello' to Everyone. I'm newbie in this place, however I've read cruisersforum before.
I'm about to buy my first boat. She is samll, pretty nice and idealy fits me. The dimension is about 7,5 m long, 2,6 m width and 1,2 m deep. This yacht was previously bought in Sweden.

Could anyone help me to determine what is the type or class of this boat?

The photos are here (on dropbox) : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/07873vkq7...JHssbOw3a?dl=0

If a write in wrong place - sorry, as I said I'm newbie

Thank you for help

Welcome to CF Adam!

I personally don't know the boat, but there are plenty of members who would have a pretty good idea...

She sure is pretty cool though!

And yes... I think the post location is just fine... Let's see what the others think...

Cheers!

Thank you for warm welcome. Unfortunetely it looks that nobody recognize this yacht. I hope she isn't home-made...

Re: What is the type or class of this boat?

It looks too much like a production boat to be homemade. In the US there are numbers on the hull at the transom which would indicated the maker. She looks like a very nice design. I know it is not a Folkboat or a Hallberg Rassy.

Give it some more time to see who else responds.

Good luck!

It looks like a Westerly GK24 with an alternate interior layout.

I agree with Yellowtulip, looks like a modified GK24. The shape of the bow and coachroof is very similar, but seems that the cockpit has been moved forward. Check in those aft cockpit lockers for evidence that the transom has been extended. The yard ID number and hull number are imprinted on the transom of GK24s but that one seems like it may have been extended by 20 - 30 cm.

Too bad we weren't smart enough to take the hint from the rather large lettering on the hull... I really like her...

Have fun and good luck Adam!
