    Please help me identify this boat.

    Hi guys, new member here. I really do hope you can help me identify this boat. I was inspecting a roof when I saw this beauty sitting uncovered in the back of my client's yard. The client is apparently desperate to get rid of the boat.

    I cannot make out what is written on the badges other than Volvo Penta. The boat has a V6 engine with what appears to be a 4 barrel Holley carb.

    I have been looking for a boat restoration project for some time and I'm fixing to pick this boat up for a very low price but I also dont want to buy a lemon. The boat has been standing outside in the rain for probably a few years; How severe do you guys think this restoration will be? Will I have to replace the floor and/or transom? There appears to be no cracks on the transom from what I can see.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Kind regards,

    Hannes (South Africa)

    Absolutely no clue. This is not a Hydrodyne by my knowledge base and research.
