I think you might find Avon produce rather more than that, however grand total for the UK probably less than 1000.

What are you going to do with this information ?

Well.... it is partly curiosity. But, I have been thinking.... if I could find a commercial partner who could cope with producing a large number of very similar (few choices) boats to highly reproducable standards, I think I could get the marketing advertorial in mags such as T3 or even potentially sales through Telegraph........

Any interest?

Err no, think the market is rather crowded, personal opinion but I would rather invest the money in something like Rogue waves enterprise given the cost of south coast moorings and the level of service MDL manage to offer.
