Can you identify this boat?

For the last several months I've seen this 3-masted sailboat in a webcam for our local news station (King 5, Seattle) and wondered what it is. It is at the Bellingham marina. I've attached a pic


Judging from the other boats, it looks to be pretty big -- 55' perhaps without the sprit?

Any ideas?

It looks like a Herreshoff Marco Polo design, with a heavily modified deck/cabin plan. The proportions of the rig and the canoe stern are a dead giveaway.

Any idea which one it is? I sailed on Hereshoff Marco Polo when I lived in Australia in '88. Boat was named "Ile Ola".

Was actually a great boat to sail shorthanded, even with the three masts. Relatively small sails that you could set one after another at leisure.

Thank you all for your replies, and satisfying my curiosity! She looks to be quite a sea kindly boat. It just bugged me every evening to see it and not know it!
