The Osprey name has a chequered past originally northern diver built them, then late 90's they sold off the moulds which were scattered far & wide some were bough by my pal & are sat in his now closed workshop in County Durham some ended up in norway or holland & a few were & maybe still are being built & then there was the south coast company building them. I also noticed at least 1 new boat sat for sale at DDZ marine in largs with a northern diver badge on it as if they have recently restarted production. Its a real twisted web is the osprey brand.

Osprey were also built by Mike Whitman up until maybe 7 ish years ago.
Brugge Marine in Belgium also had something to do with them.
