An educated guess Looks to me like an ex fire service flood rescue boat made by S.I.T ( specialised inflatable technologies )based at Leyland in Lancashire .

Looks like a good sib to me

The expensive part will be the engine an a suitable trailer.

This one looks hardly used and I havent cleaned it yet, None of the d ring or patches are worn and has gas inflation ports,
Ive got a trailer, I think ill lend my brothers 25hp and give it a whirl.
Is it worth advertising on here ? for sale

That looks like a quality sib and quality normally sells.

I do not know what it is worth but.......

I would stick it on ebay as a classified add say 500.00 (it could be worth a lot more, or not) with best offer, then wait and see what (if any) offers come in.

It is all about how you list it, make sure you take good photos and highlight the build quality.

A session on Google might give you more information.

Good Luck
