What boat is this?

Anyone recognize the make/model of this boat? We saw it cruising this summer and I've been trying to place it ever since. It looks like something from Mariner, Bayfield, Fuji or perhaps a Bill Garden design but I can't track it down. To my knowledge, the first three never made any center cockpits that look like the mystery boat and Garden's CC's are different too. What do you think?

The hull screams Gozzard, but the aft cabin ports don't look right.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
Thanks BJ, that is the brand I was thinking the last I checked here an hour or so ago, but could not recall the brand. This "COULD BE" a semi custom too, where the owner bought an aft cockpit, and had the aft cabin/center cockpit added after the fact.

If you read Gozzard's website (Gozzard Yachts Boat Information - Gozzard Yachts Brokerage.) you'll see doing semi-custom is the whole reason he left Bayfield.

I think this is a Gozzard 44, which has a ketch option, which the owner had build as a CC. Here's the aft-cockpit version: http://www.gozzard.com/atk/uploads/Gozzard44.jpg

I'm pretty sure it is NOT a Gozzard, though the clipper bow and scroll boards do give the impression.

I do think Faster may have it with the Taiwan Clipper 48. They look very similar, except for the teak eyebrow accent along the coach roof in Faster's link.

I do think that's the one.. There are some detail/finish differences, but the unusually high house profile aft of the cockpit is a match, as is the port configuration.

This has more in common with some of the Perry designed CTs with that transom than Garden, but I can't find any info on that yet.

TD - that's a great line!

She looks like a over sized Bayfield to me
