It sure looks like a Dumas Scarab to me. I kind of doubt that it's a knock-off but their 'glaswork wasn't the greatest in the world either so you may have some chipping in it which may want you to think that it could be a splash.

I think Dumas would have a sticker inside with their name on it. That's what a glass tugboat hull had when I bought it.

When I google dumas scarabI see boats that look very similar but have squared off windows. Did dumas make a few different 55'' scarabs?
