    Spotted of the coast of Belize last Thursday... I'm sure I know the profile, I just can't remember the name.
    (Forgive the grainy image... I didn't have a proper telephoto lens with me.)

    Very interesting hull strake! She looks fast:)

    Where did you see her and was the hull white? It seems to be very reflective; or it could just be the lighting of the photograph?

    I believe she is under 24 meters

    Rizzardi 45 Incredible. Over 70 built from 2004 till 2010, mostly powered with Man R6 730hp. There was a surface drive version. They sold 60% with shafts 40% surface drives.
    Other engine options where Man 610hp hull one, 630hp, 710hp, and one unit powered with Seatek 800hp and surface drives which reached 50 knots.
    The model has also evolved into the 50 Incredible only one sold, launched in 2012, and then the 48 Incredible in 2016, which they made 3 or four of so far.
    It is to a certain extent a semi custom build, and was a competitor to the Pershing 46 (2005 to 2009), with the Rizzardi actually selling more.
    Most of the sales (80-90%) happened in Italy, with some others in Greece, France, Croatia, and Spain.

    She was the most successful Rizzardi ever made, followed by the more classic looking 50 Topline (but very sweet).

    I don't actually expect anyone to ID these two yachts.... but I thought it would be a fun pic to share here.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the one in the foreground were a Defoe.

    I know that ship, worked for the same company, but on a different boat.
    She is ex Harald Jarl from 1960., 287’ long, coastal steamer from Norway.

    Background... could be the 35.4m Feadship Avanti III, now The Highlander
    The Yacht was delivered in late '66 or early '67, so she could have visited Montreal before the end of the Expo in October '67

    Appears to be a pre-2000 Horizon... maybe a pilot-house 70 or smaller

    That is definately a Horizon design and it must be older than 20 years.

    Not a Horizon. More a Kha Shing. Nineties Horizon where a Elegance yachts. Also hull might be wood, so or its a refit (hull looks classic, see spray rails and some details) or a Turkish build.
