Xylene and toluene ARE chemically similar, although you could probably write an interesting (to me!) page on whether they are actually in the same "family" - however as a rule of thumb, if it dissolves in one it will dissolve in the other; and is also likely to dissolve in petrol too...
Ah .. ok .. knew toluene was a benzene ring .. just googled xylene doh ..I forget..since a studied it at high school 30 years ago

I guess the obvious question is - is it insured? If it is get it to someone like RIBShop who can either fix it or will help value the repair/replacement cost.

OH, and if its been damaged twice in the same place - probably best to find it a new home.

I had an Avon boat they had white enamel paint on the underside ,
most of that came off after being daubed in decorators Sugar soap that you can get cheap from any DIY shop , I left it soaking under a sponge full for a few hours ,
Some use it for graffiti removal from buildings .

As was said Acetone ( nail varnish remover) may shift it works on most paints .
Just wondering if it he hammertites gone really hard that it may just peel off a rubber flexible surface .

I'd be tempted to let it cure & peel it off. Hammerite is a hard setting paint reinforced with glass, once cured it's very brittle. Assuming it's just been thrown onto the surface & not worked in, it should come off. Look at it this way, if you'd used it as tube paint, you'd soon be complaining that the stuff is cr4p

Maybe Locking the Stable Door..But I would definately be moveing it too! Should be able to get it off...just a matter of testing small area's with everything sugested,and anything else you can think of..I would Back the Petrol sugested already if it's not gone too hard.Failing that leaving it Like Pikey said..and peeling it off..if you've used a Protector-Conditioner it'll make life easyer.
I'd also think about who you could have Pissed off!..,obviously a Low life Looser who's not man enough to Face up
Good luck either way

Thanks for all suggestions, will give it a try tommorow or monday if it stops raining.
We do know who done it, someone who got drunk next door and thought it funny to throw paint around.
He didnt think it funny when police took him away.
Its in a back garden,normaly safe from scum who do this sort of thing.

The idiot was drunk , but no excuse, there is lots of stuff damaged by the paint including a 140hp johnson, a few kiddies garden toys, and the patio dont look too clever now.

But will take onboard all suggestions and see what we can do.
The sides are more the important bits, the underneath i think will be the easier part to clean.

thanks for everyones help on this, strange topic.
