What do you call this boat????

I saw a sailboat with flat, knotched transom and a a 50HP or so Merc on the back. It headed out of the cove, stepped up on plane, and off it went. It seemed to be a normal sloop rig otherwise. Narrow at the ends with a nice 8-9' beam. It was only around 25-27' long I would say.

It looked like a dual purpose boat but I can't seem to find anything on google searching when I really don't know what it is called.

Anyone in the know??

Re: What do you call this boat????

it's a compromise that does neither sailing or powerboating well.. but that is ok, most boat owners can neither drive their powerboats or sail very well.

That said, it is a great sail boat if you need to get to port in a hurry

Re: What do you call this boat????

Some of the reviews I read about the Lancer were actually pretty positive on its sailing ability.

Re: What do you call this boat????

I actually saw one (a Mac 26) out on Lake Wallenpaupack last week. I couldn't catch him, but I was just in my little Phantom dinghy. That's the first one I've seen under sail - previously they were always motoring.
