The HIN BVA432290882, indicates that it was produced by Barre Boats, but this is probably in error... it is probably foreign built and using a MIC code issued by someone other than the USCG. I doubt it was built by Barre Boats, since the description of the company says that it wasn't founded until 1985, and that it produced mainly small work boats.
BTW, interpreting the HIN, see here
More on HIN's here.
Given the BVA MIC code, I'm guessing the boat was actually built in the Far East or Europe and then imported into the United States.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
