"It is an EX Dorset police boat therefore has been maintained regardless of cost throught its life."

I'm not sure the second half of that sentence is entirely accurate! And IIRC the terms of sale prohibited future reference to its past owners!

The details I have (from the original tender when Dorset Police sold it):

- Hull 1998
- Engine refitted 2005: 300 HP Yanmar (Gumtree add say 315HP)
- Known faults - damage at bow where sponson meets - some peel back of laminates is visible (I don't know if that refers to the tube or the hull).

The other boats being sold at the same time weren't in great shape which suggested to me that the "usual" no expense spared maintenance we associate with public sector boats wasn't the case.
