Looks like one of Avon's sportsboat range I know they made S.340, S400, S550 and I think they made one just under 5Mtr.
Looks like it had the red fitted bow dodger at one point

Hope it helps

How are the tubes fitted to the hull? looks like a sib adapted into a rib?

Not sure though, but don't think its a sport, the hull is way too deep.

Tubes are fitted to hull mechanically by using aluminium list, adhesive and screws on outside and inside i have 3 big rope patches on each side with 1.5 inch strap to hull that pulls tubes against the hull. There is also hypalon fabric between tube and hull that works just as dirt seal.
Might be a avon sport but i have not found anything that looks like this.
There has been a red bow fit on this one yes.
