I don't think so...that one looks to have a deck and cabintop... Tough to use the mold if it is enclosed like that.

Based on the shape, it looks like something from the early 70s. Probably someone picked it up at a builder's bankruptcy auction years ago thinking they'd build themselves a custom yacht. (His wife probably told him to hide it somewhere.)

So, yes, it is a project opportunity. From the gelcoat up.

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.
