What is this boat?

The Hull is being given away and I don't know what it is...

The most expensive little kimkeeler (i don't know what those keels are called in English) you could possibly end up with

I don know make or model, sorry. Keels like that are very common in the UK since they sit comfortably on the sand.

Do you know the length?

It looks like a Vivicity bilge keeler. Not sure of the length but looks about 20 to 22 Just a guess though.

Re: What is this boat?

Unfortunately I don't know the length. It isnt a Columbia 26, or an Albin Vega, Centaur, the others listed and I am running out of options.



Here is an additional picture:

I've looked at each of these and the Leisure 22 is too small but similar. that window in the from of the Cabin really should get someones attention. I can't find it. eve the all know GOOGLE hasn't revealed the boats identity.

Re: What is this boat?

Kingfisher was the last bilge keeled boat I could think of, but nope.
Annoying!

There's an English guy docked here, I'm going to ask him tomorrow. If it is a UK boat, he might know ...
