    Concord/concorde Boats Dudley Marine

    Hello there i have recently purchased this speedboat, but unfortunately the previous owner could never identify the manufacturer/model/year.i have been aimlessly searching for this but have had absolutely no joy.
    a few suggestions have been made i.e fletcher arrowsport / plancraft sceptre /global sabre/ labrador/ picton/ mustang all of which are not correct.the boat is 14.5 ft with a vey shallow v hull with a very distinctive slant on the bow nose (see pics) i would love to know what this is as i have spent hours and hours looking through google pics and forums trying my upmost to find out a bit about it.it has been carefully refurbed and i cannot find a manufacturer marking anywhere.PLEASE PLEASE HELP!

    Have you looked for a serial number moulded into the transom? Also look around for a capacity plate (how many people/ hp)

    Can you provide a close up, hi res picture of the upper right hand corner of the transom? This is where the HIN will be. The design looks modern enough to be post 1973, which means it should have a HIN.

    Something nor adding up. The boat looks like new or freshly painted , the engine is old like a Selva or Chrysler or even a painted Yamaha?

    The trailer is too small and looks much more aged than the boat and the gear controls are definitely old style.

    I have never see a flat step to the hull like that, I would remember.

    Its not impossible that it could be a copy of something with a subtle change so recognition is not obvious.
