10yr old Tornado hull shapes

Hi
I'm looking at ads for a couple of 5.8m Tornados at around 10-12 years old. The current Tornado website talks about a couple of models of the 5.8, either medium or deep vee. Anybody know what the ones of the sort of vintage I'm looking at would be like please? Reasonably good seekeeping boats?
Thanks!

Tornado

I have the original spec sheet and brochure for the Tornado range from 1996/97 and there was only one hull type for the 5.8. At that time I bought a new 5.5 wide beam model, it which was a fantastic sea boat with great stability. As I understand it when production moved to China other variants may have been produced.

Hope this helps!

Yes, thanks both!

DJS, don't suppose you'd be up for letting me have a copy of that spec sheet would you, please?! If you might be, please PM me and I can give you contact details. Many thanks!
