A mystery boat – hmm. The length is about right for an Enterprise (which word appears on the sail) but the beam measurement is a little too much I think. An Enterprise has its mast stepped at the level of the deck, ie it doesn’t reach right down to the bottom of the boat (there is a separate post below the mast which transfers the load down to the keel). Also there is no aft buoyancy compartment, which enables the transom to have two fairly large openings with flaps to let excess water escape after a capsize, unlike most Wayfarers. There’s a picture of one here:-

Sorry I can’t be more help.
