Black SR 5.4

Was speaking to a guy yesterday that has a black hulled 5.4, he questioned the authenticity of it and contacted Avon who said that the hull must have been painted, they later contacted him to say yes it is was a factory colour produced for the police. I presume that this is a very rare boat?

Yes I would have said so, I have never seen one in the few years I've been looking at them.

Are the tubes and console black too?

Can you get any pics

Also have a look here:
