I’m fairly sure that it is a Grasshopper marketed by Yamaha. Rare in this country as it is too similar to a Laser, but may have caught on elsewhere.

Sorry, but that should be Seahopper not Grasshopper. If you google Yamaha seahopper it will lead to some CVRDA posts from a few years back about the class.

I purchased a boat with pictures like that, thought I had a bargain till I went to pick it up, pictures were 3 years old, boat was a wreck, couldn't see he had done anything wrong.
