The boat is a Safari 37, designed by Klaus Grohnert, and built in Costa Mesa by Safari Marine. I believe they only built a few of them. I believe that Klaus worked for Westsail at some time, so that may be why some of the construction details are similar. I have a pretty complete set of brochures and drawings of the boat in my files from the 1970's.

I did build a number of custom Westsail boats, as well as a number of others designs while I operated Worldcruiser and was actively building boats. I purchased my hulls from other companies, and sometime decks also, to custom build for a customer. I designed the 50' schooner using a Columbia 50 hull, but never built one as the customer backed out. I did build two 44' schooners using an Islander 44 hull, and also a Westsail 42 schooner.

Tell me if that dates me or what?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
