    Might be worth checking with Fairline. It might be a bit like the early SunSeeker Portofino 35 with a Hardtop, factory job but SS only built 8, and it does look a bit heath robinson.

    It does look a little too good to be a home mod though...

    Could also have been a salvaged burnt out hull.

    True. There is something about it though. The Radar arch doesn't seem to have been lopped off, everything fits a little well.

    Can't find any info on the web still. Would really like to know the history.

    Not bad if you don't mind been seen in a copy of something, joinery work is usually top dollar, where they fall down is they are monsterly heavy being built from wood but if looked after last the distance but again higher maintenance cost.

    Never quite pull the copy / replica thing off though always just shy of the mark.

    They don't do many anymore they have moved on considerably since then and yards are very state of the art affairs now and producing their own product which IMHO are as good as or even better than any UK or Med builder. They can afford to spend money on the detail with labour costs 40% of the UK or even Italy. Very skilled boat builders these days the Turks.

    Here the worlds largest single one piece mould vacuum infused sandwich hull just about to be launched from a Turkish yard. I ve seen it and it is simply stunning, you should see the five axis milling machine they have for making the moulds, absolutely huge!. That lower deck one piece window is stunning...the view, the light, the technology to do it! awesome stuff.



    Compare this to a certain tri deck build recently launched and you can see some sweaty brows at nearly three million euro cheaper!
