Can someone please help me ID this boat?

I would like some help in identification of this boat.. Year, Who made it, model etc? It is registered as a 1980 Columbia Coronado but i have doubts about that one. I have also been told it appears to be a mid to late 60s Columbia Challenger possibly with modified windows. Also was told it could be a Columbia 7.6. I would like to know for sure...

This might be a good place to start .........

Good Old Boat - Boat Identifiers


The stripe looks a little bit like a Hunter, version 2

The HIN number can also be a big help

I'd go with the 60's Columbia Challenger for starters.. AFAIK Columbia and Coronado were two different builders - on Mainesail's Boat ID thread there was a similar looking Columbia...

If your hull identification number is legible (It should be), you can use this link to use the manufacturers code that makes up the first part of the HIN.

Manufacturers Identification Code (MIC) Database

BTW the HIN should be located somewhere on the transom.

Here's the link

The Visual Boat Identification Thread

Scroll down a bit, for a "columbia about 25 feet'" in Sailaway's post - now that I look at it if it's close yours has extra ports... While it's similar I don't think it's the same design....

Here's a page with other Columbia Challengers:

Columbia Challenger Exchange

I looked for the HIN on the transom... I do not find any.. I think the boat was manuf before 1972.

If that's the production cove and boot stripe, I'd say to run away if you're thinking of buying it. It does have a Coronado look and I want to say that Columbia bought Coronado.

I can say for sure that it is not a Columbia 7.6M. I have one and this has very different features.
