Great fun 2 years ago, chine walked at full chat, which which 55 knots but anything under 50 was fine. Last I heard it was sold on eBay around 7 mths ago, with the motor being advised as a non runner, although clearly the seller states its now been given a clean bill of health.

Great boat, was some debate on it being an Osprey if I remember but whatever it was it was a bloody good ride!

Yeah I'm not completely convinced that it's an Osprey. The new pictures on Ebay make it look a little more like it is though.

Interesting power/size combo for sure!

Evidentially has had seats retrimmed recently

When you see the pictures of the bow and the way the transom is supported you'll see it's not an eagle, looks very different to my rhib (Eagle)
