    Hard to tell from photo. Can you provide details of construction method/ length? From what I can tell it may be a 30 square metre boat like a Dragon. (Dragon is approx.30 ft. long). From the other angle, it looks like a Folkboat (if it's laptrake/clinker planked, it's probably a Folkboat)

    I got to know that it an Eliott Design, between 1946-1947. Built in a British Royal Yard. It was used by soldiers.
