Built by Kencraft I believe, an Australia company that I don't think is still in business.

They're still being built. Owned by the same company as Larson, Carver, Marquis. Polymer hulls (Roplene) and they make great utility boats. They claim the hulls are five times the strength of fiberglass. Only one weakness I'm aware of. They don't store well on trailers unless specially designed for them or on racks. Hard surfaces will distort their hulls. With more support and promotion I think they well could have sold far better. I've seen them used by several marinas and also seen them used as rental boats. Rental customers are notoriously rough on boats so this is great for that purpose.

BandB I wouldn't hesitate to buy another if need be. It is pretty maintenance free just keep fuel and oil in the merc and go. It may not be as tough as the video makes it look but it's damn close.

The poly boats here are usually double hulled and essentially unbreakable. Which is good, they are used as tenders by charter companies. Even if the outer hull is damaged they float, but it makes them very heavy, due to water accumulated between inner and outer skins, very odd to row.
