I'm curious about what relatively unbiased opinions I'll get by not naming the boat in question.
My initial thought were along the lines of a Bruce Roberts Spray 27, or Tom Thumb 26
, maybe even a catboat. But most of them would come in with longer waterlines.
She must be a beamy boat (our 31' has the same beam), with longish overhangs. Possibly a double-ender, but they weren't usually so beamy.
The specs certainly don't suggest a club racer....
