IMO, not an Ocean Pro (or the Attaque at that vintage). Could be the Destroyer, which is narrow.

Kinda looks Destroyer-like. The Destroyer has only one full length spray rail (each side, of course) and a flat planing pad on the rear part of the hull - so looking at the transom, the bottom of the V is flat and there is two spray rails part way up the V, one on each side.

A good handling boat. Particularly good in a beam sea running along the wave troughs and also quite a high bow so also good in a following sea. Some were quite lightly built though so 150hp on a 6.5 is about the limit.

Looks like Destroyer performs well with a 150hp.
Rated up to 175
