Looks a little like classic Ericson 41.
Maybe....

Looks like olson has it.. I can't see any trace of the Hinckley logo on the sheer stripes..

And this looks good:
Ericson 41

Looks like a Bermuda 40 to me. That stem is too curved to be by Bruce King.

Hi guys here's an update

It is a 1968 Javelin 38 designed by bill tripp, very similar to hinckley 40 b
Was on board yesterday for a tour after meeting the owner . There were only 25 built. His won the Halifax to Marblehead ocean race in 1991. Since then he's completely redesigned the interior. Being a cabinet maker the work is pristine. He has also shortened the boom by 2 feet and purchased a new main. My favorite part was the old style binnacle w/ compass

She has beautiful lines. Looks fast just sitting there.

That is not Majek. She is not a Javelin 38. She is not an Ericson. SloopJonB is right. She is a Bermuda 40, actually a Bermuda 40 Mark III sloop. Rig has been modified, double spreader rig 4 1/2 ft higher than original. How do I know this ? She's mine. :)

This is Majek. Another beautiful Tripp design.

Not Halifax to Marblehead. She won the Marion to Bermuda race in 1997.
