What kind of boat is this?

Hypothetically speaking, if you were looking for a 40'ish, aluminum, junk rigged boat, for long distance cruising, what boat would you be searching for? Anyone seen anything that matches these criteria?

Re: What kind of boat is this?

I've spent quite a bit of time looking at the gazelles but it appears that the aft cabin is completely isolated from the rest of the boat? Also, I've heard that they can feel a little cramped due to their narrow beam? I haven't had an opportunity to see one (the nearest is a $1000 flight away!)
I looked at Zaals on your recomendation, and will continue looking at them but was unable to find any Wylos, only Wylie. Do I have the correct spelling "Wylo"?
Thanks everyone

I do not mean that specific Wylo. We all know what Wylo is, right?

I mean a boat like Wylo.

Wylo 35.5 background

Easy to built in alloys as it is IMHO drawn for steel.

BTW If you want a simple built alloy yacht to travel the world, and if you want junk rig, talk to Kurt if he can draw a junk rig for his hydra, or similar, design:

Re: What kind of boat is this?

I have surveyed both the Gazelle and the Wylo designs. The Gazelle aft cabin can be accessed via the cockpit or in some cases via a walkway on the port side. The narrow beam did not seem that noticeable......remember this is not a 40 foot bendy toe. The Wylo I surveyed had a swing keel with the case in the middle of the cabin. That was a little more cramped. Both are sweet designs with plenty of circumnavigations under their belts.

Re: What kind of boat is this?

To me it sound like a Colvin boat.. but there are plenty of manufacturers like that.. I bet that if you type those keywords on google you'll get something
