What make RIB is this?

Does anyone know what make this is. I'm told it was made in the Isle of Mann but there is no more info on it. It's 5 metres long and has a GRP cone on it's bow. Tubes I'm told are hypalon. Is it a good make or what?
Thanks in advance

Opsrey 18, one of the very first ribs to be made by Osprey/Offshore Components. Should date from 1988 - 1990 time and was the forerunner to the Sparrowhawk.

Built by Mike and Ralph in deepest darkest Lancashire (bloody impossible to find the first time) as are the latest Vipermaxes. Needs a hatch to access the bow locker for storage.

Buy it, you should be home in a couple of hours in that, done that journey a few times in a Sparrowhawk.

Ribnet is best viewed on a computer of some sort
