What boat is this?

Saw this boat in Annappolis harbor couple days ago. Super gorgeous lines. Only info the harbor master could provide was that it is 37 feet. The companionway was off center if that helps...

Re: What boat is this?

Looks like an Alberg 37 with (the modification of) a gigantic solar arch off the back, there.

Wonder if that weight affects how she sails...?

I believe that is in fact an Alberg. Good call! Absolutely a beautiful boat. Was kind of funny seeing all these super expensive new sailboats in Annapolis, next to this classic beauty. They didn't compare...

Thanks LittleWing77!!

Re: What boat is this?

A friend of mine used to install the interiors of these. Lovely boats but probably equivalent to a modern 25 footer for useable space. And as mentioned that design without the arch is a hobby horse machine.

A pity to put a helicopter landing pad on a classic.

Kind of a blanket statement Ann. Not all older boats like this, with longer overhangs, hobby horse. A good designer knows what beam, hull shape and bottom configurations contribute to hobby horsing. I owned a 30ft Garden design that hobby horsed terribly. I also owned a Ted Hood Blackwatch 37 that was steady as a freight train. There is a lot to a boat that your eye just does not see. The placement of the weight is a huge factor.
It would be like me saying that long waterline, flat bottom boats will cause the fillings in your teeth to fall out. Again, it depends who designed it.

I think the hull designer did not include that huge solar panel arch at the extreme end of the boat in his calculations.

Re: What boat is this?

I also believe that is an Albert 37 and Iím sure that all that weight on the Stern doesnít help in the hobbyhorse department. I have an Acapulco 40 which is a fairly rare boat with a hull shape much like the Allberg with a great deal more beam. No hobby horse thing on my boat, she tracks like a freighter.

I think the arch is a "spoiler" like on race cars. Probably to keep the stern from lifting out of the water when sailing "wicked fast".....(LOL)

Re: What boat is this?

I don't know the manufacturer's name of this boat, but a similar looking craft that would be worth considering for purchase is a Bounty 2/ Rhodes 41 designed by Philip Rhodes

Texans don't talk like that, sounds more like a yankee.

Re: What boat is this?

Pretty boat, but that stern arch is horrendous! If the skipper isnt at least 7'1" tall, I would like to know why such a monstrosity?!!

Of course not. But the owner could have made it out of foam and glassed over making it very light. Or it could be made out of 2"x6" lumber which would be very heavy. Regardless the owner is into solar and it is the rave of modern boats to have an arch. To me, it's a better idea to have a hard dodger for solar and live with the problems that come with that.

Exactly my point. Not all well designed older boats hobby horse.
