Similar. Fraser 42 shows four ports fwd of the cockpit vice three and one aft vice 2.

I can't see the cove stripe well enough on the Fraser.

The blue boat seems to me smaller than 42'?

I thought possibly S&S also. Looks to me like maybe 70's vintage? To my eye it's a good looking CC, at least from that angle.

Yes, the cockpit isn't on the second floor like on some.:D

One of the sweetest center cockpit boats I have seen.

The bow reminds me of some of Bill Tripp's designs as well. As do the hull ports forward.

Looks more like a big ol' Hood or Bristol to me....

Maybe an early Hood. Do any of the Bristols have hull ports?

The cabin ports are perfectly sized for the cabin - and clean looking as well. The teak dorade boxes would only come from a quality builder. Maybe it is a custom boat?

Ketch rigged and obviously American - it has those "illegal in Canada" horseshoe buoys.

It's definitely not a Fraser - note the cabin top ends at the mast leaving a large flush foredeck - the Fraser cabin goes much further forward. It is definitely not a Swan either - they never built anything even close to that design.

My first thought was a Spencer 1330 but on closer inspection it ain't that either - I'm stumped.

Mystery solved!

This is an S&S design built in 1970. The first three were built by Seafarer and the remaining fifteen were built by Hughes in Canada. I’m told that the Hughes build quality may be somewhat suspect.

This particular boat is hull number one still owned by the original owner!

It is a 48’ yawl named Bonnie.
