Brita/Britvic Batboat?

Am wondering if anyone would know the whereabouts of a large batboat aparentley around 26-28ft (so i imagine a b28), possibly inboard which might have been called BRITVIC. Not very accurate I know but this is what Dad asked me.
I thought of the Brita boat which ran round the island a couple of years ago and I believe had twin 2.5's, but hen he said he thinks it's white and yellow.
Has anyone got any ideas?
Cheers, Max

Peter Little raced it, but he did not own it, but would know the owner.

That's Brita, which as Max says, was a twin OB, not a sterndrive.

Owner is ian Blacker.

I think it may still be out in the UAE (middle east) where as far as I know, it last raced.

Don't think so, one in the right hand pic is a bladerunner and the left pic is a b28 but the pleasure version like (i think) Paul Gilleys.

Cheers for your help,
by the way what sites are there where you could find reasonably large raceboats? things like boatshop24.com
Cheers, Max

Yes 2.5's I believe it runs high 90's but last time i spoke to him mannerfelt suggested modding the wings as it became a little unstable at those speeds.
