To give Beneteau the benefit of the doubt...

Most Beneteau buyers don't really understand why a boat would want a traveler, let alone would ever adjust it.

I take that back! Most Beneteau owners adjust the traveler to make is easier to get to the swim/boarding step.

I changed my mind. Maybe this new mythical Wyliecat?

Shop floor looks also similar. Mainly in chaos. These stringers in the background, looks similar.

This is an old pic, not of the suspect we look for.

This is Bett's Yard, where the new Wylie 60 is being built, the structure in the background matches very well. That's what I'm going with.

I'm lost on the boat in question but chimed in to point out that all those trying to determine if the building can help them nail it down are missing a key bit of info. The building is a pre-fab metal building (or "Butler" building, to use the name of the industry leader), one of tens or hundreds of thousands of very similar design around the country and the world. They're one of the cheapest ways to enclose a large volume, thus unsurprisingly will be the building of choice for many boat shops. Not a useful metric here.

The type of building doesn't matter, common or rare.

But...

The stuff hanging on the walls, general cleanliness or messiness, other visible work are all clues. Even how much attention is given to protection from rain and/or cold can greatly narrow down geographic regions.

Except that the difference in beams and their color, building height and condition of the workspace and the North American location narrow the field a little. That, and many of us have been in multiple boat building operations, so there are clues for us to determine the location, but thanks for the information, it’s informative. 
 

When I buy my next prefab I’m going to look for a good deal on steelbuildingclassifieds.com 

There are always a few brand new prefabs out there at job sites where they misplaced footings, etc. on the concrete pour that makes the prefab dimensions useless at that site.

I'm not fully convinced. The workshop doesn't look to be as high as the one of LM, the curve in the roof seems unlike the one of the plug and this cockpit view from above shows a single block, the first pic indicates a traveller. But that could, and should, be able to be changed even in the biilding process. Here is the LM 46
