Its only the old Rupert 26 that is built on the Crompton hull, they dont make that hull anymore, think they stopped 2 years ago with that hull, its a new 26 hull today.
There is no Rupert in that size that can do +60 knots with twin Verado 250 and they stopped building the boats in Sweden, they are today made in Poland.
Otherwise very commercial and good looking boats.

So it wasn't copyright theft, they just decided there was no need to pay for it, basically, they claimed they'd never actually sold any. I sent some pics to Phantom of the 9 metre Tornado, in use, out in the Solent.

Although they admitted in the end that they'd made some, they still messed Steve around for ages and never actually paid anything!

There was no charge for the original use of the mould, just royalties on 'boats sold'.

Fkkn charming!
