what type of boat is this?

Sorry for bad image quality. Saw this boat in Harbour Town marina in Hilton Head, SC, trying to figure out what kind it is.

Pretty boat... kinda has the Hinckley look - so maybe a McCurdy and Rhodes custom one-off? Difficult to pin down the length.. I'm thinking 50-55 overall?

I was thinking early Rhodes design too (father, not son)...but too narrow in the stern, I opine.

Didn't Cherubini have a production schooner in that range?

Very pretty boat but what on earth is that vile contraption on the stern ?

Is that thing off the stern part of the boat or an extension of the dock?

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.

Cherubini has a 44 ketch and a 48 schooner. It looks like a schooner rig in the photos, but there are some other angles I'd want to see before I'd say it's a Cherubini definitively. That stern platform is certainly irregular.

Did it have a mushroom-shaped cockpit, with the aft-most portion dedicated to the helm-station? You can see what I mean here:

Cherubini 48

Edit, looking again, I now see the cockpit is wrong for a Cherubini 48. Ahh, but that Cherubini is worth a look all the same.

I agree, probably not Cherubini, but a handsome schooner still. The "stern pulpit" appears to be a means of getting onto a short finger pier.
