Default Does anyone know this boat?

I just found this beauty. The seller didn't know about the build or hull. Does anyone know anything about this boat or hull? It's about 54" long, with a structured deck and figerglass hull.
Thanks, Webb

Looks very close to an East Coast 12 Meter, if the mast is 72" tall,
you might want to check on the AMYA site and check the rules & specs
there to make sure what hull you have. www.theamya.org

It's not an EC12. Check inside the hull for a manufacturers label or marking.

Here is a Canterbury J. I suspect that your boat may be a Six Metre which is popular in the UK. Since you are in Sarasota, you might contact Milton Thrasher. http://www.angelfire.com/fl4/mft/

Nice looking boat! Can you post a profile view looking dead on from the side -- and maybe a picture of the transom shape?

Definitely not a J boat and definitely not an EC12. The shape does remind me of the Vortex 60 -- which it is not from the keel shape, and the Sant Barbara -- which it is not from the size... anybody have details on the Half Meter (Santa Barbara's little brother)?
