Best I can do for a forward facing view at the minute

There is a HIN on the starboard side of the transom but it starts GBSIM which is Sunseeker! I know, go figure?
It's why I'm assuming it was a tender to a sunseeker (waiting on a call back from them to see if they can shed any light)

Ask biffer nicely and he might tell you what mine says. It would not surprise me if the SIM is Shakespeare International Marine.
It definitely looks lime a Shakespeare 720 Sportrib hull to me.

Did you look at iandl's build thread?
New Shakespeare build

There is little doubt in my mind it is a Shakespeare. Nice spot Paul Tilley

I have tubed two 720 shakespeares and have a very good memory for an old bugger also just checked my files GBSIM is definitely start of Shakespeare HIN number .looking at the hull from the bows they do look similar to revenger but spray rails are very different to solent ribs and any other phantom based hulls

GB is the country code

Sunseeker's manufacturers code is XSK.

So, it's not a Sunseeker.

Unknown RIB

So, we seem to have settled on Shakespeare then guys.

Can't thank you all enough for pointing me in the right direction!

Now all I need to do is work out what it's worth to see about buying it.

As the HIN does appear correct for the rib (rather than being associated to a Sunseeker as I had been led to believe) I know that it's a 2006 anyway.

Suggestions as to value are more than welcome!

Having looked at the thread there's absolutely no doubt it's the same hull! Fantastic!
