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...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

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.
