classic hull - id?

A few shots of a hull on the Island that I have passed many times and wondered what / which boat it is?

Looks very familiar - but can't put my finger on it. Need to look through old archives - or someone may know.

She is only 23 or 24' and was twin engined - about all I can see.

Looks like a Formula. Graham Stevens will know her name.

Was thinking of possibly the original UFO? - colour and line look similar - but think it might be too short.

You can see the lines of a 233 under the tarpaulin.

Yes - you're correct there. Seems the right size too.

Wonder what her history is and if any racing? Not much to go on - could not see any distinctive marks or evidence of numbers.

So maybe just a leisure version.

Just had a phone call with a bit more information. The boat has never been raced and was a leisure model.

Quite a bit of work has been done - but unfortunately does not look likely that it will see the water anytime soon.
