Full keel Ketch - anyone interested

While passaging the boatyard today a boat caught my eye (pic attached). A ketch with a full keel, twin forestays (cutter?), staysail on a boom...items frequently posted on Sailnet. Not my kind of boat, but she looked very Bristol and if it rings a bell for anyone I can get the phone number off of it...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I actually don't know, perhaps some lurker will fill us in.

Probably from the 1970's. The Streamstay jib furlers and the roller furling main boom are clues. Many similarities to my Allied Mistress 39 from 1972.

That would be my guess as well.

I'm guessing that's not actually a cutter... the slot looks a bit too skinny to me. Perhaps it's just twin furling headsails - maybe a blade and a genny - so sail changes aren't necessary. I'm seeing those out there more and more - not a bad idea.

the one on yachtworld is $65,000. i think it's the same since you can see the bow thruster if you look carefully

It's an Allied Mistress MKIII. Aft cockpit version of the Ketch. Lot of folks like the "Great Cabin" arrangement. The bow extension is an add on. Normally the headstay is located where the inner stay on this boat is. Jib boom is a mod as well. Fairly popular one as it turns out ala Island Packet. We prefer the separation of cabins for privacy which is important to us as liveaboards. Read everything you can about the boats and make your own decision. We love ours
