What year is my Avon

I just purchased a 13 foot Avon R380 and would like to know what year it was manufactured, is there a way to do this? Thank you in advance.

The last two numbers on the serial number that is stamped into the transom, at the back, will give you the last two numbers of the year.

Not quite correct Thomas. The last two digits will give you the model year of the boat, not when it was manufactured. It is the next two in from those that will tell you when it was manufactured.

So, for example, a CIN number ending in I203 would have been manufactured in September 2002 but would be a 2003 model year boat. A is January, B February etc etc

Would a boat in the US carry the same ID methodology?

As this is an R3.80, I suspect it's from the pre-CE days.

Hi,

Since the inception of the RCD in 1996 there has been a standard format for CIN numbers. (Athough they were called HIN numbers back then).

I will give you a mock up number and then explin it's make up.

US-MBC12345J112

The first 2 digits before the dash is the country code. We are GB not UK. America, as in the example above, is US. To this day many American boat builders do not put the country code on there boats.

The next three digits are the manufacturers MIC. (Manufcturers Identification Code). This is issued by a industry body in he country where the boat i built. You cant just make up your own MIC so that if a boat is sub standard the manufacturer that has that MIC can be identified. Here in the UK the MIC is issued by the BMF.

The next five digits are fro the manufacturer to make up as he likes, using and combination of letters and numbers to identify the model and the actual boat. He needs to be able to identify from this number who of his staff built it, what materials went in to it, and any other relevant information to that build.

The last four are as I expplained previously regarding month and year of build and then model year of the boat.

Hope this helps
