What's the Name of this boat...

Anyone knows who manufactured this boat and what model it is???
I couldn't find anywhere a name on it. I would say it is somewhere between 20 and 26 feet, and it has an inboard engine I assume.
Thanks,
Michael.

Looks like a Bayfield.
All the best,

Thank you for your quick reply.
That's it. It is a Bayfield 25.
Thanks to you this is probably my future boat.

Not the fastest boat of its size ... well-built, but it will take you a while to get where you are going...

Sailormann, so you have experience with that boat?
Do you know by chance how fast it max. can go?

Theoretical hull speed for your 20 ft. waterline is 6 knots.

Hull speed on the Bayfield 25 is a bit less than six knots... 5.94 knots to two significant digits.

But it will take a fair bit of breeze to get you to 6 knots. These boats are quite beautiful, from the outside as well as in the cabin below. They are very stable, and well-suited to someone who likes stability and isn't in a hurry. In a light breeze, other boats will move ahead and leave the Bayfield relatively motionless.
But still beautiful boats....
Frank.

A short review here: Bayfield 25 - Used Sailboat Market in Canada If you hit the 'home' button the site has a lot of info on other boats as well as buying boats and boat ownership.

Not sure if you saw the reviews here: http://www.sailnet.com/boatchk/showp...cat=all&page=1

Downhill, in a gale with really flat water MAYBE... They are pretty little things but they don't move much faster than your average channel marker...
