A little while ago I saw, possibly at a show, one of those high speed, go fast things. If memory serves, it was about 60cms long and was available in several different colourways and that fact, I think, is the most memorable thing about it and possibly the only way I'll identify it. I think it was a bare hull and deckhouse moulding. It's not for me! I want one for a present for someone who saw it with me and liked it. She can't remember the name either.

I know that's precious little to go on, but if anyone has any ideas, I'd be most grateful.

There are very many small remote controlled ready-to-run model boats on the market - mainly from China. Lots of shops do a selection of them. Almost all of them come in several colours - they are intended to be bought for kids in a family to race against each other.

See https://www.amazon.co.uk/Remote-Controlled-Boats/b?ie=UTF8&n...

I've got one in the style of a "Cigarette" racer Twin screw detachable cabin for access . The legend on Tx is super at top and RC Speed Ability across bottom It's white with red and blue stripes. Nimh cells for everything. 40 ,3 Meg it I recall.👍
This may help although full scale.

I hope you have the time to look through All of them. Find one you like then see if someone does a kit /plan whatever. Good hunting.😁
PS Just thought ! have a look at Bang Good and Gear Best sites under speedboats etc.🤓
