Identify this boat please?

Hello!

Caught the sailing bug last year and now like to checkout the 'ladies' when I get a chance.

This lady is in Gozo, Malta mgarr's harbour and I could not get close enough to identify any markings to indicate who built her - someone suggested Sparkman and Stephens? Hopefully not an one off as I have had no luck tracking her down. She is a yawl (2 masts - one behind rudder pole), yes?

Thank you.

Re: Identify this boat please?

I think it could be the aft cockpit version of the Bowman Corsair designed by Kim Holman in the UK. Here's the link to the details:

Did you also notice how old the boats were?
