 There's one for sale that popped up on my feed. Nice looking rig. I think Tidal Marine (Nico on here) may have bought the mold. He may be able to tell you more about them, he's usually all over who built what and how.

 Nah. The mould is still kicking around a yard in Henderson. Nick grabbed the walkaround cab mould section of it. The one that's for sale is in Silver sands.

Good solid boats, built by

Good solid boats, built by Mark Price shipwright at Seafest Marine in Henderson. I had a bigger boat refitted by him about 15 years ago and they were building them then - really solid boats with a large (oversize) grid style stringers - i am surprised they were not more popular - suggest it was because they were quite pricey (excuse the pun!) when new - from memory a bare hull (15 years ago) was around 40k -
am sure he wouldnt mind you calling to ask about them - there was also a boat review floating around online from the time - couldnt find it this morning but i am sure you could if you spent the time

cheers

I had the review in an old Western Angler magazine. If I can find it I will post it up here.

Didnt know they were from the Penguin Ulitimate mould.

I actually tried getting in contact through Seafest and the phone just rang out. That was last year.
