I have seen a design evaluation by Perry of two almost similar Noel White designs, one of them named Mantelpiece. They are around 30 feet, daysailers - one slooop - the other ketch rigged.
It appears they are inspired by the LHF designs Aramita and Quiet Tune.

Anybody knows anything about them - or even better - have a reference to a photo or two?

Last I heard, the Center Harbor 31 was a 'house' design of the Brooklin Boat Yard. They'd be happy to build one for you, but weren't selling the plans. Can't hurt to ask again. Let us know what you learn.
