Avon Typhoon/Spitfire

I'm in the market for a SIB and have found 2 Avon boats listed online that might fit my needs. One is an Avon S400 Typhoon, the other is an Avon Spitfire 4-00.

Does anyone know if there are substantial differences in these models? I'm assuming they are the same length, and both have aluminum floors, but was wondering what else might be different.

Thanks,
Greg

The Spitfire used to come with a built closed bow dodger, the Thypoon not, but a bow bag can de added, both same size with alum panel floors and hypalon made.

Happy Boating

Thanks for the information guys. I didn't know Avon made a 4.6 meter boat until I saw the page Johnny H posted. I always thought 4 meters was the limit.
