A few weeks ago I acquired this little boat and set about trying find out what she was. The closest ive come to is the manta BUT there are some big differences.
My boat does have a round forward hatch and the Manta is currently the only other boat I have found that also has this.
My boat has a bilge keel and a offset companion way hatch like the Leisure 18. Somebody did say I could be a prototype so I thought I would ask on here.
Thanks in advance

If you do find out, let us know what it is
|Mark Wed 11 Mar 2020 09:23:34|| Just had a thought. Do you have the sails? The main sail might have an emblem on it and that might be a good clue as to what it is.|
Manta's mainsails have a symbol like the photo below. If you have a look at the brochure pages you'll see where it is on the mains sail.
