Looks like a "Chris Craft Launch 25." Maybe?

@hmason: I'm pretty familiar with that range - this really looks different. Look at the way the coaming is carried onto the stern:

I know it's highly unlikely it is, but has a lot of similarities to a Wajer.

In some ways it looks like a Cobalt.

I think you're right and feel silly that I didn't see it having owned two Cobalt's. I was thinking coastal and don't think of them as such. I am horrible at identifying boats.

The boat it most reminds me of is the old Century Coronado (minus the hardtop).

You may not be able to identify boats very well but at least you have good taste in the ones you buy.

Cobalts are nice boats.

Growing up inland and boating on the lake, my first three boats were Searay, and my last two were Cobalt. All did an excellent job for me. We do miss the speed of the last boat we had there.

Metrhinks very rare in the US.

I do like the styling, but then I'm a huge Riva fan and Refugion initially said it was kind of Riva like.

Didn't realize it was authentically retro! There's a restored one on Yachtworld from 1970 (in Italy)
