Most sailboats have a sliding companionway hatch, so that isn't a very distinguishing feature to focus on.
As for fiberglass... it is not edible to the teredo worms, which would eat a wooden hull, but the barnacles and such find it a dandy surface to live on...so a copper-based anti-fouling paint is usually used, to prevent the boat from becoming a floating reef.
Given that the boat in the photo appears to have a wooden mast and deck/cabintop, the boat's hull could be either wood or fiberglass, and that it appears to be an older boat, it is probably wood. However, most fiberglass boats have masts of aluminum or more recently, carbon fiber.

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.
