Arr, yes well, you see there was this court case and neither Osprey or Vector exactly came out of it smelling of roses although the result was rather tight lipped. Cookee may know more but rumour suggested a fee of £60k.
Anyway the XR 24 was replaced by the Lynx, slightly longer and modified nose shape.
Interesting that the photos of the XR 24 on the website are of the XR24 that Puffin Divers used to own in Oban. Hope they didn't splash it. Why haven't they built one I wonder rather than just buy a second hand one.
If they had had asked we could have given them much more of the boats history than they have published.
The original XR24 may be available for the right fee.
