Which Swan looked like that?

Would explain the S&S looks though.

But I don't think S&S ever designed a center cockpit Swan that small.

Maybe an early Hood. Do any of the Bristols have hull ports?

The cabin ports are perfectly sized for the cabin - and clean looking as well. The teak dorade boxes would only come from a quality builder. Maybe it is a custom boat?

Ketch rigged and obviously American - it has those "illegal in Canada" horseshoe buoys.

It's definitely not a Fraser - note the cabin top ends at the mast leaving a large flush foredeck - the Fraser cabin goes much further forward. It is definitely not a Swan either - they never built anything even close to that design.

My first thought was a Spencer 1330 but on closer inspection it ain't that either - I'm stumped.

I thought of the Spencer as well but it's not.

Definitely from a good builder. Like Seguin or...

Mystery solved!

This is an S&S design built in 1970. The first three were built by Seafarer and the remaining fifteen were built by Hughes in Canada. Iím told that the Hughes build quality may be somewhat suspect.

This particular boat is hull number one still owned by the original owner!

It is a 48í yawl named Bonnie.
