    Hi, I wonder if anyone can tell me what kind of boat this is? It is 8.5meters long, has a fibreglass hull and apparently was built in 1974. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

    Sorted.

    Thank you to all those who have looked at this thread. It looks like the boat was made by the Pearson Brothers of Arundel, Sussex, UK. No longer trading although they are said to have been some of the first builders to make fibreglass hulls?!

    Nearly sorted!

    There are rumblings that it could be a Guy Thompson design. Will update.
