I have the Chuck Paine book on his designs, that boat is in it. Great story behind the design. The dodger and davit greatly change the look of the boat. There was a wind vane steering originally also.Find more information and images about the boat and contact the seller or search more boats for sale on YachtWorld.www.yachtworld.com

Think the cabin might fit me well.

That's an interesting boat, actually, whatever it is. Flush deck, high bulwarks, a snugged-down cutter rig. From the looks of it, a cruising boat that is actually racing. Seems to be at least 10 people in the cockpit, which is a lot of people in the ass-end of a boat going upwind in a seaway like that.
Craziness. Why design a boat for the 1% of it's working life spent doing that? Aside from the fact that (as observed by others) the people in this photo are doing it all wrong.
I see nothing particularly IOR-related in that hull shape. It is a fat, heavy cruising boat, with a nominal "fast cruiser" underwater profile from the early 1980's, with a passing relationship to dual-purpose boats from that period. No boat with a huge amount of weight in the ends goes well in the conditions in that photo.Tad had a follow-on post with more explanation. Here is the text. Copying the pis is more than I can handle before breakfast.
Seastream 43, yesterday I posted a photo of a Seastream 43 pitching over a short and steep sea. The photo raised some comments so I did a bit further study of the boat, and made a quick and dirty model of the hull to show it's form. The boat was designed by Ian Anderson in 1981 and approximately 35 of them have been built. I would characterize this hull as short (on the waterline), fat, and heavy. Looking at the lines drawing today we notice very pinched ends with all the hull volume bunched up midships. Beam is 14'0”. This shape was influenced by successful racing boats of the day, all built to be fast and to rate low under the IOR rule. The pinched ends were an effort to make the rule think the hull was smaller than it was actually, and smaller hulls were considered slower, thus a lower rating. It turned out that translating IOR shapes into cruising boats didn't really work that well once they were overloaded with a full hardwood interior, big engine and bigger tanks, teak decks, and on and on....
The Seastream's design displacement is 32,000 lbs with about 11,000 in ballast, all the photos I've seen show the boats floating significantly deeper and all are down by the bow. Pitching is amplified by weights in the ends of the boat, Newton's first law tells us that motion is conserved, once something (say the anchor and chain, or a dozen people in the cockpit) gets moving, it is not easily stopped. If there's little or no volume in the ends of the hull, there's nothing to slow and damp out the pitching.
Nice, but not my style. I like a bit of white with my wood.
That style interior wood work is very difficult to clean and maintain
