    Hello,

    I saw this boat in Halifax today. It's beautiful. Can someone tell my what type of boat this is and anything about it?

    Thanks.

    It is sleek and very attractive, but before I'd cross the pond in it i would need some more protection.

    I think she's a NY 30.

    Similar lines, though I thought the NY 30 had six lights in the deck house, not 5.

    What bothered me most is the lack of Herreshoff details, such as the typical way the cockpit coaming ends on most of Nat's boats. And I can't figure out which one she might be.

    cblu, can you lift a name off the bow shingle from your original image?

    There's a sailboat for sale roughly this style north of Seattle.
    Near Conway.

    The port arrangement on the NY 30 was unique looking for it's day and copied by many. It had a furniture quality to it.

    Good catch Tad. I thought see looked too short for NY 30.
