Ranger 37?

Ranger 28... higher ratio of tumblehome to unit length, perhaps

The R37 is a beautiful boat. I lusted for one of those, for decades. I tried to find one of the racing pics of 'Munequita' back in the day but google is not helpful this morning

I never thought I would hear anyone utter this phrase.

Did you ever sail one downwind in a blow? The R37 was possibly the worst behaved IOR boat of all time.
Just because two strong people hauling on the tiller couldn't keep the old Munequita from rounding up over and over again I never found her homely -- though she was tumblehomely for sure.

Sorry, I never sailed one, I meant "beautiful" in terms of visual aesthetic only. I have seen them sailing and they are real water-dozers, for sure

Most of Stephen Jones early Half Ton designs, circa 1972.  i.e. Demolition, Supernova, Smiffy and the aptly named Tumblehome 2 which Ish has a plan view photo above.

Below are Tumblehome 2 and Smiffy (past and present):
