Anybody recognize this sweet boat?

Does anyone recognize this boat? I have an idea that she is a Gillmer design, but isn't one of his usual designs, and I have no idea what company he penned these lines for. She looks sorta like a stretched Seawind.

I'd say she's about 38 to 42 feet long.

Whatever she is, she's gorgeous!

Any ideas?

sorry. Can't seem to be able to attach picture.... Which is best? "Attachment", or "Insert image" or what?? Nothing seems to work, and when I try the "Attachment" route, a screen pops up telling me I may not have enough priviledges for that. Weird.

Okay, done. I guess it didn't like Flicker. So went with your suggestion and bingo! So here she is again. I'm hoping someone's memory may be jogged as to what she is.

To me it looks like an Alberg 37. But possibly a 41' Rhodes Bounty II? Can't find one on yachtworld to compare it to.

It is a Pearson Rhodes 41 (which was an adaptation of the Rhodes Bounty II)

Thanks for the input Jeff H and Keelhaulin!!

Yes, looking at it now, I think you're exactly right....it IS a Phil Rhodes 41. Must be an earlier one, because the aft portlights seem smaller than on many of the 41's. I was at first even thinking some sort of early Dickinson...but no, she definitely shares her lines with the Rhodes!

I wasn't thinking there would be such a long stern overhang (was covered by wave action in my pix). I'm not a huge fan of long overhanging sterns, but they sure make a pretty picture.

The new Schooner Virginia has a long overhang stern, and few would call HER ugly!

What tripped me up, was the addition of a small bowsprit and bobstay in the original picture.

I guess there were also individual changes in the main cabin portlights from time to time, but the single forward-facing portlight is correct.

Good call on the Pearson Rhodes 41 versus the Rhodes Bounty II!! Looks like the smaller doghouse portlights are the easiest key.

Here's an early Bounty II:


And here's a slightlly changed Pearson Rhodes 41:



and here is the difference:

"The Rhodes 41 is derived from the slightly earlier Bounty II and comes from the same mold which Pearson Yachts aquired in 1961. (both boats are designated as Rhodes design #658.) The new boat was given slightly more freeboard, two smaller windows in the dog house, and lead ballast. The mast was moved aft a bit, the rig was changed to a masthead foretriange, and the engine was moved out of the bilge and put behind the companionway."

You, Sir, have excellent taste in boats. Definitely a beauty.
