it s a tough one - im tempted to say Vistacraft or maybe Pro-Line?

but then it has the rounded hull sections aft line the old Marlboroughs...

theres obviously no indication of a manufacturers stamp on it?

Im no expert on older glass boats.... but it does look very very similar to a Marlborough.

I think someone has added the hatch on the front to get to the anchor. But the hull does look fleetline. But then looking at it again with the concave sides it could even be a sea nymph.

yeah... nah... there s actually nothing fleetline about this hull other than yellow was a popular colour back in the early 80's...

next guess...

OP guessed figlass. i'd guess he was right, figlass cavalier?

So it's either a fleetline Sapphire, a Proline, a Figlass, a Marlborough, or a Vistacraft. Fishing.net for the win!

To me it looks similar to my 1980 Vistacraft, but I really don't know. A builders plate would really help, must be one somewhere in there.

Owner has looked for plate but unable to locate. A Trophy Champ was suggested ?

Just to help the boat is a Vistacraft Seawolf 420 built by Vistacraft boats in Henderson 
They went very well with a 60hp outboard but they did not produce a lot of them. 

Hope this clears up some questions

I have the original sea trial just can not load sorry
