Identify this boat?

Saw this beauty today in my travels. Probably one of the prettiest boats I've seen in a long time. Would love to know what it is..

Re: Identify this boat?

Could be a Le Comte Tripp design yawl. They had one model called the VITESSE. Reminds me of the LeComte boats.

Re: Identify this boat?

Could be a Columbia 40. The 38 had a spade rudder.
If it's the 40 then it is a Charley Morgan design. Probably a production version of his SORC winner PAPER TIGER also a yawl.

But checking with a drawing of the Columbia the rudder does appear to be as designed. Still I think Charlie is right.

Re: Identify this boat?

Faster"
Many thanks for posting that. I like to know my boat identifying skills are still working. Of course I can't tell a Beneteau from a Jeaneau but back when I was a 16 year old kid, dreaming big dreams, I was a real Le Comte fan.

I don't think there is a "p" in there.
Google doesn't think so either.

Beautiful example of CCA overhangs and Bill Tripp's art at work.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: Identify this boat?

Whatever the pros or cons of the CCA era boats it always does my heart a bit of good to be anchored near one. They sure be mighty purty.
