Nemier mentions Lyman Morse....Bob Perry designed a lovely boat for LM to build known as a Perry 45 or lyman Morse 45. It was to a large extent a modernised enlarged Valiant 42 with pilot house. Lovely boat and very similar to this one but no.

This also bears some resemblance to a Bestevaer/ Bestewind and our old favourite the Puffin but its not one of those. Has a bit of a Van de Stadt look to it but again I know of no VDS that matches. The bow is unlike any VDS.

I'm guessing though that it is a nothern European design, probably Dutch or thereabouts.
