Remember one of these of sale with 220hp Mercruiser a few years back. Does anyone know these boats, performance, history etc? Need a new project.

Yeah, that one was at Merlin Quay for a while, 4.3 litre V6/Alpha drive.

I don't think they set the world alight, but looked quite nice. A Lorne Campbell design.

Was chatting with the builder a few weeks ago (Francis Whitely) I think he only made a few.

47 knot or mph? Do you know if there were any other engine options? Think I will by the test from M&Y.

That’s not to clever then, no faster than a similar sized mono-hull.
Thanks for the information anyway…
