Umeds? is on a distinguished road
Unknown Identity 2

Hello all,

Having spent countless hours in a fruitless search I have not been able to identify my boat. The registration shows a local naval yard (Lisbon, Portugal) which has since gone out of existence and left me to guess at what model this boat is based on. The closest I got was the Alberg 30, but on closer observation some details just don't convince me. I find it hard to believe that this is a one model, local product, due to the quality of craftmanship.

Umedsó is 9,40 meters LOA, 2,80 meters wide and has a draft of 1,52 meters. She weighs in at 4,16 tons (!!) and was built in 1980. There are no markings save for the cove stripes.

The boom is made by Skarvens (Swedish rig maker...), the winches are Baron and blocks are Barton. I'm inclined to believe that she's a nordic boat, but my search has so far proven fruitless. Anyone have any suggestions?

Umeds,

Your boat looks like a slightly updated version of a Pearson Wanderer, see :http://pearsoninfo.net/wanderer/wanderer.htm. The last of these in the US was made in 1973. If you dig into the Pearson histroy, perhaps they licensed the design to a European builder. It's a handsome boat. Enjoy!

On the right track with the Alberg designs, check goodoldboat.com for the boat identifiers, they have one very similar cove stripe shown, (bristol), but without further digging can't go any farther.

www.alberg30.org/CarlAlberg/designs.html has a list of his designs, but the only bristol listed is a 27 footer. And the only one that matches specs closely is the cape dory 30.

Kind of curious as I like Alberg designs, so Please post your findings, I own Triton #707.

Ken.

Contest ???? Looks like one with the chain plates on the deck,see if they are glassed into the deck or do they go through to the bulkhead. If glassed into the deck might be a Contest. If it is check the chainplates real good they are a problem with water getting in and sitting around them.

Talking Check the Hull Identification Number (HIN)...

Should be embossed on the transom, upper right, that is, if the boat was really built in 1980. The first three letters will give you the code for the manufacturer, and you will then know unambiguously who the builder was.
The US Coast Guard maintains a database of manufacturers at
http://www.uscgboating.org/recalls/mic_database.htm
Type in the HIN, and voila!

could it have been retitled in the 80's?
Most newer Alberg boats use the newer style squared off rudder, not sure exactly when they changed over.
Looks almost identical to my Alberg designed Triton, and except for the cove stripe and dimensions given, I'd almost think it was a west coast Triton.
