Jersey Velocity

In 95, we supplied a new Velocity 26 with twin Merc. 350MPIs to a customer in Jersey.

Has anyone ever seen it or have any idea what might have happened to it? Just curious.

Thanks Toby but don't go to alot of trouble. I just wondered what ever might have happened to it as I never heard of it again once it was delivered.

Please tell Roy Ben says Hello when you see him.

I believe that may be over here now, at least there's a 26ft velocity with twins here. In pretty poor nick at the mo, has been left uncovered and uncared for for a while. Apparently it's got serious engine issues but it seems to be getting sorted at the mo. Could be a totally different boat though!!
