I thought it looked like a shetland aswell, but cant seem to find another one that looks like it with the single front window.

Many thanks olli!!!!

Thats is exactly what it is, Cheers!!

You have wrote 50hp max,, which is a bit of a bugger as he has an old 60hp Mariner outboard here that he was hopeing to put on it.

Would the extra 10hp make much of a difference?

OK after a lot of digging Ive found out that Picton took over from F.A.M.E in making these boats so its now a Picton Domino which brings up a bit more when doing a google search, but I still cant seem to find any specifications on the boat.

Its pretty flat bottomd, will it be sea worthy?

I have one off these, it had a mercuary 60 already on it and was originally owned by our marina. I am currently in the process off fitting a Suzuki Df60 on it and refitting the inside. It has always been sea going as we are a coastal marina.
I also cant find much info on the boat. Only found this post by trying to search it..
