I believe that is a 32' Stuart Angler.If memory serves me correctly someone else had the mold originally,they got the mold and named it that.
It's kind of a "squatty" Wasque,little more beam,lower sheer.

Woodworks - thanks for The info
The two questions i have :
1- the chine- looks like the Stuart angler is a hard chine and this boat is a soft chine like the wasque
2- The risen stern shear seems to be indicative of the wasque and not the Stuart angler which is a constant shear like a gamefisherman or Merritt

With the slight deadrise this boat has coupled with that tower and soft Chines I would expect she is quite a roller

I believe there were 2 different Stuart Anglers built @ the same time.
I don't recall whether there were 2 companies or not.I do vaguely remember the other "hard chine"model,definitely 2 different animals.Too many boats
to remember all these years.

By the way a friend of mine fished a boat identical to the one pictured sans bridge.It was a Stuart Angler.
I had a couple of Harris' years ago 38' hard chine,28'soft chine,2 different designers, 2 different companies
