What Make Of Sailboat Am I???

Back in the 90s we attended a Miami Boat Show and saw some type of a cruising sailboat sloop. It had the heads and berths down below. Up on and in an enclosed cockpit was the galley. The bimini was a hard bimini and part of it slid out of the way for the aft part of the cockpit. The back of the galley also opened up into the remainder of the cockpit area. It had twin steering towards the aft. I *think* the name reminded me of a Caribbean Island, but I'm not sure. Thats about all I remember. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.

Did it have one or two hulls?

In other words, was it a catamaran?

"Sloop" is often used more loosely in reference to the kind of rig. But it sounds like this was a monohull.

It would help if you could give some idea of the size/length or any other details, such as country of origin, was it a "charter-type" boat, etc.

Yes monohull
40+ foot
I believe it was mostly for chartering
No idea of country of origin

Dufour made a model called the Atoll 43 that sounds similar to what you're describing, but I've never been aboard one.

P.S. Here's one for sale:

Nice find John.... I'm impressed. We actually have seen one of these in Guadaloupe, I think... interesting boat.

Funky! Looks like a Lagoon without the "split personality".
