As much as I would hate to say it - it looks like an early tri hull. Like the Bladerunner.

I'm pretty sure it's a Seejen from the mid 70's. I can remember it coming to Allhallows for an Estuary Classic. Very tasteful in "Prosthetic Pink".

Not a tri- hull or anything to do with Lorne Campbell.

I'm sure BluFin can help us out here - He seems to have been knocking about as long as me....

I loved the look of that boat .
Went well in the rough obviously If I recall, Had the length on what was the 21 footers of the day I have 25-27 foot stuck in my head for some reason about it.
Unitex Kid was a Seejen but buggered if I can remember the stable for Mr Unitex - Might have been a unitex home brew but looking at the lines side on I could see a bit of Maloney influence in it.
Seejen.... what happened to them was the cutting edge in it's day the one to beat post Stapley-Tremlett & Pre Marshan - havent seen an example for years. Was all the rage during the Marbella powerboat week (Kor that was a bloody long time ago !!!!!!!- Seejen came a cropper that week - "Dumbo" ???? might have been the rig.
Mr Unitex - It was a 100% Mono
Gonna think on Mr Unitex Now !!!
