Our boat was built in Brazil... next door

The company was Fast Yachts, since defunct. They bought the moulds from Nicholson in Great Britain around 1982/3. We appear to have hull#41 (of 130 or so) Original designer was Ron Holland. Fast Yachts appear to have built a few different models...

This looks like a local Argentinian project, with a local designer but is certainly of that IOR era with the pinched ends. Should be quick under certain conditions!
