    There are a number of old threads about Fiberform boats, just type "Fiberform" into the search box at top right, and a list will appear.

    Welcome to the Forum Mikey.
    Do you have any photos that you can post on here of your boat?
    Does it look like any of the 28' boats shown in this thread?
    Fiberform motor cruiser range - 1977 catalogue https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/fiberform-motor-cruiser-range-1977-catalogue.51011/

    Here is a copy of one of the variations available in 1977 - they only mention single engines though.

    Re the year, there should be a serial number engraved in the transom on the starboard side, just under the deck edge (unless the hull has been painted at some stage, and the number has been filled in with paint), and the last two digits of the serial number should be the year she was built.

    Another thread you should read through is General help/questions 1980 Fiberform 22 https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/general-help-questions-1980-fiberform-22.64099/#post-879438. and an even longer thread fiberform did they even exist? https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/fiberform-did-they-even-exist.21757/ It has the history of Fiberform in the thread. A 73 should have a Hull Identification Number. Look on the transom in the upper right hand corner (when facing the transom from outside the boat) You should find a 12 digit number molded into the fiberglass. The first three digits are Fiberforms' manufacturer ID code. The last two are the model year. Also look here Fiberform - Classic Boat Library http://www.fiberglassics.com/library/index.php?title=Fiberform
