Re: What is the make and model of this boat????

The motor sailor pictured is probably a Rhodes or S&S design, built in steel, usually by Burger or a Dutch yard. They ranged from 85' to a bit over a hundred and quite a few were built in the 50's and 60's; they were the "mega-yachts" of their day.
Remarkably good sailing boats for a motor sailor, some drew as much as 18' with the board down. Often powered with two engines, but with only one rudder (amidships) they were a bit trying to maneuver in tight quarters.
Hope this helps.
