mystery boat in Nantucket

I was in Nantucket last week and saw a boat that was unique and beautiful - it was 40ish feet long, very highly designed - much effort went into designing all the details - no life lines - only 4 stays - rather beamy - unfortunately, I don't really have much more to offer than this - I went back to take a picture and she was gone - she was docked on the way out to the Timoneer and the rest of the mega-yachts - can anyone help me ID her?

Banshee-

It would help if you had a bit more detailed a description...color, name of boat, type of rig, etc. Saying 40-ish feet long and very highly designed is like saying it was floating on the water... doesn't give us BUPKUS to go on.

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.

Q: thank you for your intelligent response - yes that is it! Do you know what it is?

Never mind - found it - it is a Friendship 40 - and by the way, Quickstep, pretty good answer considering you didn't have "BUPKUS" to go on. Your sailing design acumen is superior to that of Sailingdog, for sure - and your tact and class too!

It is even more beautiful in person - stunningly sleek
Just checked: $804,000 sail away price!

for that kinda cash I'd be looking at a Gunboat cat!!

For sure a special sailing machine there for the few that can afford that kinda cash for basically a daysailer!!
