They are manufactured in Turkey. I don't know the name of the manufacturer or if they have a web site. The hypalon tubes are made with Pennel fabric and Ceredi accessories. They look well made. Traditional Med style designs - large tube diameter, narrow beam, medium vee deadrise. Small boats labelled 'Dolfin' are also offered in PVC.

thanks !

The boats are actually advertised in Toronto!
(I grew up in Muskoka)
and was thinking of maybe one as a "back up" or "overflow" boat. ... there are lots of "imports" from cheaper labour countries now, particularly south america and Turkey. I don't think i'd take a chance on them as a main boat in the hard, bad seas we get, but for the "fair seas" peak season, maybe.

The importer lives in Toronto. A nice fellow with boat manufacturing experience when he lived in Turkey. I am not sure where he has the boats stored, i.e. they might be in Muskoka at dealer he has been working with to market another line of wooden boat.
