    Wink Need help identifying this boat please!

    Hi all!

    I've been enjoying the info on the forum for some time but this is my first post!

    I would like to find out some information regarding the boat in the photos. If anyone knows the make/builder/class or any other info would be appreciated!!

    It looks very like the hull shape of a Thames steam launch, though the same hulls have diesel and electric versions.. Not sure of the builder though..
    Just an amateur bodging away..

    Some years ago, a company who is no longer was building electric versions of these.

    If you note the OP's address, I'd say Afrikaans / South African..

    But more to the question, where is the design from? I've a feeling it's a modern interpretation of an old design shape and could be anywhere in Europe or even the USA.....

    Thanks everyone for taking the time!

    I think this is also a fair match on the hull;

    Looks very similar?

    The Frolic 36 even more also I think, with the clerestory cabin top. The bow thruster also makes me suspect that it is a GRP hull (like the Frolic).

    BartJan Bats has a similar boat on his website. Another Dutch boatbuilder also. Bolger has one in his portfolio
