Can Anyone Identify this Boat?

Could someone please help me identify this boat that was found on the ASA membership card a year or two ago? I really appreciate your help!

Anyone else want to take a shot at this? I think this boat looks too small to be a 30-33, but what do I know. I thought there would be someone on this board that would be able to give me a definitive answer... Please, Please, Pleas?

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.

It looks like a Dufour 31 or perhaps something like a Chaser 29 (which late became the Bucaneer 29)

Dufour and Pearson were definitely two that used that cabin 'stripe' treatment.. Any Chaser 29s I've seen had much shorter houses.

But then anyone could have added the stripe after the fact.. looks a late 70s/early 80s kind of thing..

Confirming Dufour 31

As a Dufour 31 owner, I will confirm it looks like my boat. I think there is self steering on the transom, which throws the normal vessel lines off.

I think it is Dufour 31

I believe it is a 1982 Dufour 31.

A friend of mine ownns a one and keeps it at the Magothy Marina, in Severna Park, Maryland. It is a very roomy and easy sailing crusing sailboat.
