Welcome to ribnet!

Can't be of any help on the ID -ing, but I'm glad to see someone with a similar shade of orange toobs to me!



Things that might help the identification if you can get it out the water a close- up of the bow to show shear etc, a "square on" to the transom, detail of the toob - transom top join, etc etc. That bow cover must be a clue?

Looks kinda oilrig-esque to me.

I remember seeing that on eBay, I think it's made by Watercraft.

That's a curious hull - was it converted from waterjet?

there are no modifications inside or outside to point to a convertion looks like it has always been used with an outboard its got me stumped on the make and model it has commercial lifting points inside on the deck and through the bow

I think that the boat is a Mulder and Rijke. They were built in Holland, but ceased operations a few years ago. Widely used as Fast Rescue Craft on cruise liners. This particular one could well have foam/air tubes
