Re: What is this boat?

This is amusing... we've had about five or more absolute, but differing, id's. Sure glad we aren't responsible for shortening the "ten most wanted" list!

How in the world can we resolve this?

Re: What is this boat?

I'm going to toss in 2 more possibles.

1) An Islander 23, posibly built by Thames Marine pre-snapdragon days. The outboard auxiliary was in a well under that square cover thingy I thinkit might have been originally an American design but built in the UK. THe builder went on to make a rnge of Snapdragons from a 23 then 24, 26 and even a 30?

2) A Westerly 25 elderly design again with an outboard in a through hull well, the outboard tilted up to stow inside the stern area clear of the water for no drag under sail.

Both of the above were from the early 1970's.

Re: What is this boat?

Love the boat ID threads.

Signet 20 is close, though no port on front and the forward ports are too small. OP transom different with combing wrapping aft and no motor cutout. However boat came with skeg or transom mount rudder. Built in US and Uk. Plus mold sold to a Dutch builder as well.

Definitely looks Hurley like. But not a Felicity, Hurley 18, or Hurley 20.

Looking for a pic of Gilmax Signer Super 20.

Re: What is this boat?

Look at the water line aft in both the mystery boat and the Signet... definitely different design, not to mention coaming and windows and lack of forward hatch.... I sailed with a friend who had a Signet 20 about 250 miles when I was a kid so I am not seeing it there.... sure looks Westerly-ish .. ok we have a bunch of folks from UK here, someone must be out there just laughing at all of us trying to guess this boat!

Re: What is this boat?

Close but no cigar, was my intent.

Not a Gilmax Signer Super 20 either.

The Leisure 17 has that same front port, not it though.

The Liesure that Halifax Sailor posted is close, again no cigar. Has bulbs on the keels and reverse transom just barely. Ports more widely spaced.

Re: What is this boat?

Ok folks here is the boat... It is a Signet 20. If the first image is truly that of a Signet 20, I am certain that the identification is correct.

While there is no port on the forward part of the superstructure,
this is the boat, my question has been answered.

Thank you for participating!👍

I'd rather be sailing.

the signet is definitely the most similar but it has way more rocker in the deck the unknown boat has a flat almost inverted deck shape, and the uknown boat has a vertical transom not an raked one like the signet

Well, I agree, but I think Dean is trying to wrap this up!

Re: What is this boat?

we're looking for a flat or inverted deck shaped low free board vertical transom 19-23' bilge keel boat with a step cabin with two windows and a port hole on the side with a window on the front mad somewhere between 1960 and 1980 probably mid 60s.
is there a model number molded into the transom or anything?
but that being said i think the boat looks like a good project for someone who wants one with a without knowing the manufacturer, and it looks like a decent hull shape that'll preform just fine for someone looking for small cruising sailboat.

Re: What is this boat?

Looks very smala to me, like about 16-18 ft. There were a hear of similar designs in the UK in the sixties, no? boatman61 ought to know.... Vivacity, westerly or something along that philosophy. Dry out in the muddy creeks, explore estuaries. Simple and modest messing about with boats in a manner not often seen these days
