Seems like a really strange hull. Its 13 years old and the engines are just broken in. Also the sides seem kind of short but when looking at the helm its really deep. Perhaps driven only to church on Sundays or one high speed run from North Africa?

additional for sale listing showing manuf in 2000

I'm not sure about that trailer on my Disco 3, looks like it may need a NATO hitch at the very least

It'd account for the large open space in the bow.
