What boat is this?

I thought this might be fun. Similar to Giu's 'What place is this'... I thought it would be fun to identify boats. (What kind of boat.)

Same rules apply... you guess the boat, you get to post a picture of another boat.

I'll start. (I've obscured the name of the boat and the registration numbers and changed the name of the photo).

That's a tough one - canoe ended, cutter-rigged yawl, big-ass sprit, wood masts...looks custom.

Nope not custom, well maybe semi-custom. About 88 of them were built from the early 70's to the early 80's. The mold was made from a proven design wooden boat from the early 20th century, of which about 3,000 were built of wood.

(And actually it's a ketch.)

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I believe it's not a yawl but actually a ketch, which is defined when the mizzen mast is forward of the rudder post, stern mounted in this boat.

She's got one very tight cockpit.

EDIT- Missed CapnRon's post.
