Humber Hulls

Hello,
can someone please explain to me the recent history and the various differences between Humber hulls ?

I understand that the Attaque is the predecessor of the Ocean Pro. Is the hull just as good ? Do they have the same 2m beam ?
The Assault seems to be more of a leisure craft that is less seafaring than the Ocean Pro. Is that right ?
What is the Alpha ?

Thanks for your help. Narrowing down the choices when you're abroad and not able to see the boats in the water is difficult.

Hi, some history here, hope this helps.

the alpha i think is one of there older boats with a similar hull to the assault which is a shallow vee i.e not a seagoing hull.

Thank you.

That clarifies the Attaque perfectly

While we're on the subject of old Humbers, I had a ride in one claiming to be a "Humber Delta" All I can rememebr from the plate on the transom was it was called a Delta, was 5m long and was rated up to 60Hp.

Is another that has been renamed, or is it consigned to the history books? It had a narrow hull, hence my interest - I'm starting to look at upsizing slightly, but it still needs to get through my garage door!)
