seabreeze_97 is on a distinguished road
That's the same picture from a 1952 Chris Craft engines advertisement (on eBay right now). I can't enlarge the caption under the pic enough to read it, but the ad lists it as a 60ft sloop. It looks vaguely similar to the Herreshoff-designed 62.5ft boat also called Ventura, built in the early 1920's, and featured at Atlantic Sail & Charter. In the ad it lists the skipper at that time as Captain C. A. Haughn.
