Do you recognize this motor cruiser?

Spotted this rather elegant looking motor cruiser a while back, from across the basin at Reynolds Park, in Green Cove Springs, FL. It's a maddeningly familiar profile, but I just can't ID the designer / builder. I give the question less than an hour on TF . . .

Excellent call, Tolly Roger, and impressively quick - even for the Trawler Forum. Thanks!

Sure enough, that's what she is. Evidently built by Cheer Men Marine in Taiwan. I wonder if the design was by an individual whose portfolio we might recognize. The lines are rather distinctive.

The first link shows in the description that it is an Ed Monk design.

Very beautiful vessel but not a PT by Cheer Men, notice the hull line drops down after the first wing support. Every PT I have seen does not do this, even ours, the line are all slightly different........

The ad says "Ed Monk style".
PT's were designed by John Noreck and built by Cheer Men in Taiwan.....

That does indeed look right. I would not have bet on it being an Albin. Who designed it, I still wonder?
