What boat is this?

Other than a sunk one, ummm - what kind of boat is this?? I mean, it looks like someone took a Carver or Bayliner and stuck a mast on it!

By the way, this is from a storm that hit Airlie Beach and Cannonvale in Australia... more pics here... http://www.thecoastalpassage.com/whitstorm.html

Must have been one hell of a storm.
I wonder if that is the same storm that the Wombat posted about?

Hope evrybody is ok, other than property damage.
I have never seen a boat like that.
Your right, it looks like a converted power boat.

Lancer made some boats that looked like that, but I also suspect that one is (was) a cat of some sort.

A cat, surely; you can see the two pulpits, and a lifeline abeam between them. I've wondered how far these would drop when flooded... not too bad, really! It seems as though she's in the rocks - I'm only guessing that there's no keel there, but who knows?

Did many cats come with overhead control stations? Or what IS that up there?

If you follow the OP's link, the fourth picture from the top is this same boat, from the front. Confirms that there's not much room underneath for an (intact) keel, and shows the "pulpits" better. But the fore lifeline is behind the front stay... this suggests at least a cat-like setup; but could still be a two-hull powerboat.

Edit: I just noticed the tiny windows (portholes) below the main salon windows - I can't imagine them usefull unless they're for the in-hull quarters - so the floor plan in my mind starts to agree with this being a catamaran.

Yes that is the same storm as I was typing about in another thread but when I did so I had no idea as to its extent.

Absolute carnage. Lot of broken hearted sailors out there right now.

Soul Searcher - I'm thinking that maybe she only set a headsail. Doesn't appear to have anywhere for, or evidence of, a main sheet traveller and as you say no boom. Some kind of bizare cat motor sailor.
