Steve sold a set of bare mouldings to a Maltese customer in about 88, and later became aware that a 'splash' had been taken! seems they didn't just splash the 28, but then it does say 'Custom designed powerboats'!!!.
I suppose they have changed the screen a little, and stretched it to 33' for their larger model.
But still just another blatant copy of a Baker design.

There is 15 genuine 28's from Sittingbourne.

As I said, Steve sold a bare boat (something he didn't do a lot of) to Malta, he was aware that a mould had been taken from this one some time ago, it's also thought that moulds have been sold FROM Malta into belgium and Holland! (all as genuine articles of course)
It looks like they've revamped the deck slightly, rounding the screen off etc. the original that went to Malta was an earlier deck than mine with no cabin door set into the dash, and no hatch recess, anchore locker, or non slip on the foredeck.
