New member trying to identify boat
« on: August 09, 2017, 05:37:30 PM »
Hi everyone,

I am new to the forum and have just bought this boat but the previous owner has no idea of its age or manufacturer. I was hoping someone could help or point me towards things to look for to help me identify the boat?

Many thanks
Andrew

Hi and welcome. If you can post details of materials made from (i.e. alloy, wood, fibre etc), length, beam, draft etc that would help. Also send me a picture and I may be able to upload it with larger size. BN

Many thanks.

The boat is fibre glass and measures 3.6m in length, width 1.49m at widest point, draft is about 0.5m. Hope you can help identify it

It looks like a 1960's Swallow, but I am not sure yet.
