All depends on how you define the term "build"... AFAIK Barnet Marine fit them out. When the new "XS" trademark was launched, Lawrence Lock went to great length to obsfurcate the identity of who laminated the XS hulls. I don't know who that is, or was, but I have a very, very strong suspicion!

Fair enough, I knew that Barnet fitted them out and sold them, I have heard various rumours as to the laminators some even suggesting Sunseeker! I guess whoever it is wants to keep it under wraps, I ve looked at a few at boat shows and the quality seems to be there so I would proabably just accept that your never going to know.

Dino, You may well of seen me going between Hamble and Cowes on Saturday in my light grey Avon SR. And yes, it was fairly rough out there, but damned good fun

Identity of xs hull maker??

I would never buy a boat unless I knew the full pedigree as when you buy a Rib its a big deal how it holds together etc etc, therefore I am amazed that nobody seems to know, as I would only buy If i knew.

Somebody must have pushed this question, surely. I would be interested to find out. Somebody here must be going through the buying process so why not insist??

I suspect that your mate thought that Sunseeker made an XS because of this.
