Can someone identify this boat?

The ad says that it is a Marieholm 26, but it looks radically different from any pictures that I find of that model (shortened keel, reversed transom, etc.).

What is it?

I think it is a 261. The rudder looks wicked small, or maybe it is a trim tab and the rudder is missing?

Marieholm was the name of a builder (Dutch I believe) that was building fiberglass Folkboat look-alikes in the early '70's. There were a couple in our marina in Sausalito and I recall them as pretty nice looking boats that handled the conditions in San Francisco Bay pretty well.

FWIW...

Thanks bjones.

The transom and number of cabin windows are different. No pictures of the keel on your link, but I've seen that boat before too when I was searching. It has a fuller keel and a larger rudder. This is a weird little boat. It definitely looks like other marieholms, but it has some quirks...

@ svHyLyte: Folkboats have sailed around the world, too...

Anyone else care to take a crack at it?

The rudder doesn't look too small to me but the profile doesn't match anything I can find for Marieholm. Most have outboard rudders and a transom that is raked forward like the folkboat itself.

Question

I cannot recall the (long gone) manufacturer, but it looks just like a boat that was designed and built in in the Portland area in the 70's.
Used to be one racing in my local YC in the late 70's.

Maybe if I quite trying.... the name will come back from the dusty memory archives........

Designer/builder might have been a "Joe McGlassen" and it might have been marketed as a Bahama 25, but it am not quite sure.

It looks Scandanavian but I can't match it to any Marieholm profile I can find. Does it have a number/letter sequence engraved on the upper right part of the transom? If so the builder and model can be traced online. It should come with a powerwasher but the design looks good.
