    Those sails remind me of cartoon Duane Johnson's tattoos in "Moana".

    For just a fraction of a second I thought "photoshop".

    Ron,

    The Luders fleet (for 20+ years now?) is at USCGA New London. Those are the Annapolis boats which to my knowledge are simply called "Navy 44s".

    The jibs on the foredecks are all a little different...

    I think these are the boats that replaced the yawls? Those old boats were getting expensive to maintain, but they were lovely!

    Yes, I wasn’t clear. I meant that they go by two different names; Annapolis 44’s and/or Luders 44’s. But are the boats in the OP pic those?

    IIRC
    The "new" Navy sailboats are 44'.
    They are sloops, all rigging upsized, interior removable, lights sealed so they can be hosed out.
    Interesting concept
