Trippy, no doubt.
Well, the ed usually leaves a clue in these "What is it?" threads.  So while bow on it certainly looks like a Ranger 33, I think it has to be something by William Tripp Jr - although I don't have a clue what Tripp design this could possibly be since it doesn't have the gun turret doghouse seen in many of his designs.

Too narrow in the bow to be a Tartan 30, maybe a Tartan 3000.  Spent a lot of time on the bow of a T-30.

Nope, my first try was wrong, not a Tartan 28.  But definitely an Oday 27.   Designed by Alan P Gurney who once worked with Bill Tripp.

With the right application of rum and squinting at the screen i kinda looks like portrait of evil Donald Duck.

An article on the Oday 27. The coachroof slope looks bigger and higher in this dirty boat pic. So I tend to agree it isn't an Oday 27. Some said definitely is an Oday 27? Here's the article.

The point being that Flexi-teak,  with the white 'seams' - isn't half-bad,  and if they had a production pattern and could re-deck you for,  say, a few hundo,  then that'd be neat,  if wood decks were your thing.

Heck,  you could probably make it look like that and do the foam stuff!
I think it may actually be Esthec, pretty similar.. , but anyway, it’s a great material I have it on my boat in Med, 6 years, zero maintenance and looks like new.
