Sorry I don't know that much about the vessels by their name,...nor their whereabouts.

Brian.... what is the boat I just found..... looks like a Rhodes 44 Virginia Reel but she's 52'... built in Spain in '57 of wood at Astilleros Udondo. Her deckhouse superstructure has been modified but look at the underlying lines.

Did Rhodes or Alden have a 52' design?

Certainly looks like it could have been a design from either of those gentlemen. or at the very least a design greatly influenced by those gentleman. I think the 'Virginia Reel' boats got a lot of publicity at the time, so that might have been a big influence.

Interesting that they made no mention of the designer of that boat for sale.

Found another variation upon the Virginia Reel theme:

The sales blurb states (sold 2 years back):
Designer: Fabio Peterlini, S.Margherita Liguria, Italy on project by Philip Rhodes

Construction: Cantiere Craglietto, Trieste, Italy

Length in feet 48.25 feet
Length in cm 1470 cm
Width 410 cm
Depth 185 cm
Gross Tonnage 22.28

Engine brand Caterpillar 3304, 4 cylinders, 220 hp turbo, diesel, 2,350 hours
Max speed 9 knots

Generator: Lombardini, LMG 8000 series 8 kw diesel, 700 hours
Sail area 75sqm
Teak deck, rosewood, oak beams
Inside 2 bedrooms (2 + 2 beds), saloon with dining table and bed sofa (2 beds), 1 kitchen, 1 sailor's cabin (1 bed and toilet)
Max people on the boat 12

We own the boat since 1975 and have carried out yearly refitting. In particular the deck was completely renovated in 2007, the boat was repainted in 2010. Every year, the boat is taken out of the water, and the lower side is cleaned and painted with antifouling.
A very good captain takes care of the boat all year round and can continue to deal with the boat.
We loved the boat very much, it is ideal for a family. The boat is elegant and has flair, every part has been done in the finest detail.
The boat is inside and out in wood, in a very good condition and is very comfortable, with lots of places to lie, large water tank (3000 l), two refrigerators and a freezer.
Attached there is also a 4.5 meter Boston Wahler with 40 hp Johnson engine and a 2.5 m joker boat with 4 hp Yamaha engine.

Location: Conn in summers , Ortona FL in winter , with big dock & room for O'nite stop .
"The original plans show that the main was brailed to the mast, but later it was set on a roller-furling drum mounted a couple of feet abaft the mast. This leaves a wide gap between the luff and mast, but it helps assure that the sail will not bang against the spar when it is furled. "

Folks that would like to copy this today might consider a brush or broom like filler slid up the sail track to lessen the aerodynamic losses of a gap between the mast and sail.

She is not a motorsailer, indeed, but a sail-assisted motor boat! A very nice one, btw.

The sails are strictly secondary propulsion. 613 square feet in area, they are to be used for steadying, emergencies, and for helping out the engines on long passages. She is not to be considered a motor sailer, but rather a cruiser capable of handling long distances on bumpy oceans[/i]

Astilleros Udondo was a very active boatyard located close to Bilbao in the basque country. I think it closed its doors in the seventies or eighties. The main (and only?) designer was Josť Manuel Alonso Allende, a naval architect and very successful sailor, founder of the boatyard.

Something about him here: http://blueangelina.blogspot.com.es/
