    At first, I thought this was a Striker, but the sheer line looks more like an Infinity. The name was "Croupier" and it appeared to have an aluminum hull. Who can tell us about this?

    No. 83 "Croupier"

    Carl, although I'm stumped as well, here's an opportunity for the study of styling cues.

    Striker possibility-- a dead giveaway that she is not... is due to the reverse sheer of her foredeck; Strikers all aimed for the sky ( but her bow pulpit is Strikeresque, if I may coin a term ).

    Infinity--- Harry Schoell never penned a 'normal' house; this house/flybridge looks like an '80's Bertram 54... very buttoned down.

    Side exhausts-- early '90's Hatteras.

    Where are the engine room air inlets? Starting to look like a one-off homebuilt.

    Nav light recesses-- a Hatteras copycat.

    Tuna tower legs-- the forelegs are raked too far aft, while the aft legs are nearly vertical-- this practically hollers, "Homebuilt!"

    Finally, look at the 'riggers with their bases on the F/B, fer Gawdsake ( kinda like showing up at the Rapper's 300 Chrysler Getogether with 17-inch wheels) --- this guy's gonna get laughed out of Cat Cay.

    As always, and my apologies to the owner if he's reading this, just my oh-so-humble opinion.

    I could be wrong.

    Halter custom would be my guess.

    I thought this was interesting. When I took the picture, I thought this was a Merritt. After I uploaded the image and looked again... I dunno. The hull has the sheer of a Viking and it's void of air intakes, but the deckhouse and windows are very Garlington-like. Anyhow, note the size of the captain in proportion to the boat. This was a small sportfish (the tower was barely higher than a Stanley step stool). To me, it looks like it was based on a big brother, but scaled back to fit in a suitcase. Sorry if the answer is obvious, but would like to learn more...

    The express-style sportfish boats are somewhat of an anomaly. They cost as much as a flybridge sportfish... but you get less boat!

    For our lobster/picnic/lunch boat fans, I think this is a 52' Vicem...

    An observation: beginning to see more color on sportfish boats in recent months. Case in point, this is "Kemosabe". The hull is light brown and the superstructure is tan/beige. Still, those windows bring tears to my eyes...

    CCamper, your post on 12/5 "The jury's still out on this..."

    That's the new Sea Ray Sundancer. 2006 or possibly even a 2007. It's probably the 52' or the 60. I was aboard the 52 at the Newport International Boat Show this summer...gorgeous boat.

    Let's see... got the SeaRay logo, check.
    .....got the 'Sundancer' logo, check.

    ...got the new "Salvador Dali" ( "I'm mellllting...." ) styling. Is Connie Ray still alive to witness this?

    Sure looks like the SeaRay 48 Sundancer on the mfg'ers website.
