    Hi all, I have a GRP simulated-clinker boat which is proving difficult to identify. It has no ID plate but has a safety notice in Croatian?! Engine is by Torpedo Works! Any ideas?

    It appears to be at least 40 years old, and of a displacement or semi-displacement hull form, which doesn't help you much, admittedly.

    I think that is the boat which was produced by manufacturer "Kvarnerplastika" in ex Yugoslavia, today would be located in Croatia and I think that today exists company with the same name, but is it the same company I do not know. Worth trying to ask if they have kept the old documentation. Anyway, they had very popular boats, not only this type, and are still very popular in all ex Yugoslavia republics. This one on your photo should be model called Adriatic or Adriatik 790, not sure, but you can find info on google for that boat. Most are used with smaller engines at displacement speeds, I do not know how would it act as semi-displacement, that is the question for designers here. Here, a couple of links:

    Just to add, many reconstructions on upper structure (windshield), so hard to say what was the original one.

    Looks like you found it, Nidza, and it may not have much speed potential beyond the displacement mode.
