What Kind Of Boat Is This!!

Hello

I recently purchased this ~38' sailboat from a boatyard who didn't have much paperwork on it. I was not able to find out how old the boat was or its manufacturer. What I do know is that it is an entirely aluminum hull with a keel stepped mast and two inline spreaders. Not much to go on but somewhere to start. Can anyone help me identify what kind of boat she is? I have many pictures so if there are any specific pics that might help let me know!

With the boat I got a binder of receipts for various items purchased for it. They were mostly all from between 2000 - 2007 however, there was one in there dated as 1988. Any info would help! Thanks.

Is that a name on the transom ? if so, may be able to track it through USCG documentation database. If you can find a documentation number inside, that would be easy to check. Of course this assumes you are in the US.

The name is one which I have put on it and I don't believe it was ever registered in the US. I'm hoping to be able to at least get a rough idea of manufacturer. I believe it may be a french or european maker since the original owner was from France.

If the boat was built in a French yard, there should be a builder plate somewhere.

It is aluminium mate... not likely to be either of the above

Re: What Kind Of Boat Is This!!

hmmm ..This is a good one . The port lights along the side of the hull makes it different.. possibly a custom .

Re: What Kind Of Boat Is This!!

Thanks for the replies. I've tried looking all over for any type of name plate, stamp in the hull or any identifying marks but I have not had any luck. Hoping someone may recognize it as something similar to a boat they have experience with. Heres a shot of the interior.
