Anyone know this type of boat ?

Hi,

I spotted a boat this weekend, on the stern it said the home port was Montreal, and it had a name something like "Reach for the Clouds", about a 40-footer, a very modern design but with a kind of classic flair to it. It was grey and had a fine entry bow that flared out for the widening deck like a lot of modern race boats, but then that led to a not too wide stern, that was a very rounded and bulbous stern. It was wide until the round part started (the actual stern). This boat was equipped for long-distance cruising (also had a weathervane, big solar panels, etc.). It had a cutter rig and offset ladder steps on the mast (allow you to climb up it), and even though it had the bulbous stern it was a modern design. The
re were about 3 portholes in the actuall hull and the cabin was raised above the deck near the cockpit, but with tinted glass and not rounded but in an angular way, around the cokcpit much like a singlehanded racer. It also had a hard tender (not a zodiac) and teak decks.

Does anyone know this boat or know what kind it is ? I know it is a vague description but that is the best I can do.

I was on a course this weekend (June 21-24) and spotted this boat in the Gulf Islands, off of Southwestern British Columbia (near San Juan islands by Seattle). We were in a small cove on the west side of Wallace island (can''t remember the name of the narrow cove), tied stern-to because it was so narrow. The boat was anchored at the tip of the cove.

I know the above is vague, but I just thought I would mention it just in case any locals also have seen this boat.

I am interested in what this is. It did not look like a custom design (I think I''ve seen some of the design elements before but I can''t remember where).

-Pat

It has the similar hull shape to the Fast Passage, but it had a flush deck until at least the last 1/3rd of the boat, where then the cabin was raised up and was circular, sort of shrouding around the front of the cockpit (but not like a Deck Saloon, it was just maybe raised 6-12 inches or so), with windows facing forward and on the sides (kind of like a Tayana Vancouver 42)...
