Help identifying a boat

I've come across this, and wondered if you guys could help. It's supposed to be a Coumbia 29 of 1971 vintage, but it plainly isn't: the keel and hull configuration aren't right for that. Can anyone identify what it is? Personally, I like the British Seagull hanging off the pulpit - now that's classy kit!

WHile not a lot of experience personally, they seem to be a typical production built boat of the day. SInce you are from Europe, or appear to be, equal to say a Jeanneau, Beneteau, Hanse, Dufour, Bavaria etc. Jaguar is a Catalina built in Holland IIRC or somewhere near there!

I initially thought Columbia, but the windows don't match any that I have seen.

The keel sweep and transom shape look like something that Britton Chance would have drawn.

The hull registration number on the stern will give an indication of the maufacturer (at least in the US)

It is a Columbia 30. They changed the design from the 'bubble top" flush deck models. They were fairly fast boats and somewhat tender. Their sail area was almost the same as the Columbia 34 while being lighter. The build quality was average for the era. They are a fun boat to sail.

Yes, I thought it might be a little tender, given the keel shape. Nothing 500kg of lead bolted to it wouldn't fix, I'm sure!

I agree with Dad. It's a Tripp designed Columbia 30.
