Loads more flare than the original photo suggested. Looks like a great bit of kit, whatever it is.

Looks a bit like an assymetric Norfolk Punt.

With the raised floor open under the fordeck and controls as they are it looks very FD like internally.

[QUOTE=Chris415700]Don't know what it is, but there are three more photos here http://www.bootsboerse24.de/artikel/989/segelboot/Gade_%28DE%29/SZ_Jolle[/QUOTE]
 
Thank you very much for this link!
 
It says "SZ_Jolle" in the link which leads to the SZ Jolle designed by Martin Krings for home building. It was mentioned in a race report in 2007 so it may have been designed around that time.
 
Martin Krings is famous for sailing an FD and doing sail trim workshops on the Düsseldorf Boat Show, so any similarities to a FD might have a reason...
 
At first glance it looks like the designer "missed the boat" styling wise, but it would be interesting to see how it would fare against an AltO, Laser 4000 etc.
