Ferryman

I looked at a used 7.5 / 8.0m Ferryman late last year. Looked to be well built. The Owner told me that it was based on a Revenger hull. The spray rails looked like Revenger but there was an extra bit at the bow that looked like BWM

Didn't get as far as a sea trial as the boat was a bit big for my needs.
