Boat identification

I know this is a long shot and without a transom plate can be open to any make but from the attached pictures does anyone know what rib this is?

Is measured 5.8m long. And 2.5-2.6m wide

All I know is I highly doubt it is a searider as it doesn't have a flooding hull

Looks like a Tornada Viking, ours is 1994 and this looks the same to me but the next size up.

Sold by Barnett Marine as dive or safety boats - a good piece of kit in my eyes.

We have been offered it but waiting back on a price for it. The tubes are pretty nakered on the top so may need covering as wouldn't be willing to replace the tubes. Just thinking it would make a good boat to leave in the water and play on without worrying about having much money tied up into it

Defo looks like the photos in the link. I can't believe how easy it was for you to tell lol

Need to have a look see if I can get details on engine size now

Would be a shame to loose the growth. Maybe I could make it into a floating greenhouse

Whenever I've wanted rubbish clearing it was the waste disposal company who gave the price... tell them you will remove it for them if they give you £500

Pre 2000 tornado Viking good boats but the seams are glued and can fail better go for one after 2000 with Welded seams much stronger.

If they are the original PU tubes then retubing the boat or walking away may be your only two options.
