Identification of an unknown sailboat from the 70's

I am trying to find out the make and model of a sailboat I came across in the Asian market. It is described as 13 meters long, unknown wide, unknown draft, built in 1976 in the UK. I was wondering if any of you out there had a clue who manufactured it and what model. Also would it make a good Bluewater / Liveaboard. Thank you.

Is it ferro cement.. looks like a variation of an Endurance 44 without the pilothouse.

In Langkawi? Could be a Roberts Henry morgan without the mizzen…. Just a guess though……. Nah, too small for a Henry morgan.

According to Sailboatdata the Endurance 44 forestay goes to the stem and then has an anchor roller, not a bowsprit. The clipper bow makes it look more like a US design. William Garden did many clipper-bowed cruisers in the 70's. This one has a similar cockpit/dodger setup to the OP's photo: https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/globe-41-gy-41/
This one has even more:https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/vagabond-47/ . Though it isn't an exact match, a builder could have made some changes to the cabin trunk.

Re: Identification of an unknown sailboat from the 70's

I have been given some information on another chat board and they said Vagabond 42. At first glance I would agree, but according to sailboat data, Vagabonds are Taiwan boats and 42's where not started until 1978. The registration I received is built 1976 and built in the United Kingdom... I am starting to think that the registration is off and this is possible a Vagabond 42. It fits the profile and it has very very similar if not identical lines...

I vote for Vagabond 42 too. We have a few of them around here.
It's missing its mizzen mast though.
