She's not big enough to be a 39. I think she's more like a 30 or maybe a 35 at the very most. She doesn't seem to be much bigger than my Triton and she's got a tiller. There's a Tartan 37 beside her and it looks much bigger than the boat in question.

I was just down on my boat the other day and it appears that another boat just like the one above is moored nearby. Crazy that two obscure (apparently Scandinavian) boats could be found in the same little NE harbor!

Maybe Sigma 36; I think this because she has the 'signature' instrument display hump just above the compagnion way. I also think to see running backstays (also a Sigma feature).

Looking at the number and size of cabin windows she does look like 40ft boat to me.

Not sure if a Baltic or a Swan, but they're not the same company. Baltic was started in early 70's by 5 employees of Nautor (Swan) who left to go on their own. At the end of 1977 Hollming Ltd, a large Finnish shipbuilder purchased Baltic. In 1991 Hollming wanted to sell and there was an employee buyout and they have been running Baltic since then. They are located in Bosund Finland. Nautor Swan was purchased by Italian Leonardo Ferragamo in 1998.

i know they have something in common besides being very expensive plastic fantastics--it might be designer then--not certain--but they have something in common.....they also look very similar in lines and design ....the boat in the pic is one or the other--i know that much!!

They're both based in Finland. German Frers is Nautor's most prolific designer, also Tripp, and Luca Brenta. Previously S&S and Ron Holland.
Baltic uses mostly an in house team for most styling, engineering and interiors, lines by Judel Vrolijk,Reichel & Pugh, Doug Peterson,German Frers, S&S and others. Neither currently builds smaller than 42 in Swan's case and 50 for Baltic except for custom. Below are a Swan 40 and a Baltic 38. I don't think it is either. Definately from Scandinavia though.
