If memory serves, that is an MRP off shore cat.

I don't know who built it but that's got to be one of the worst ever designed. Everything on the bottom is going to contribute to a really bad handling boat.

Looks like you've got yourself an AMPS Excaliber!

Its a very sought after hull - how much did you pay for it?

Does it have a power trim unit inside the transom?

Its should be about 44 inches long.

The pic on the left is from the AMPS International Thread here on RC Universe - the engine on that boat is worth about $1000 bucks - if you can get your hands on one.

The pic on the right is a pic of my own Excaliber Hull.

I have an AMPS outboard lower unit to go with it - just need a power head.

Any more pics?

It is actually an International Hobbies Wellcraft Excalibur Cat, and should be 40" long from front to transom. They are hard to find, I have 2 of them currently, but have had 4 at one time. The pic on the left is one of the ones I use to own. The outboards, call Amps, run anywhere from $350-900, unless it is a very very perfect, rare model, and then you may see them hit $1000, but that doesnt happen that often. $600 for a good clean one is around the norm these days.

At one time I had a couple of rare AMPS motors, one mounted on a T100.. The T100 with a Fox .60 Redhead was sold on ebay for $1500.00. This was around 5+ years ago. Ken aka: SpecialK1, now owns that boat/motor. The other motor, a T4, had a Fox .35 or .40 in it. That sold via private sale on RCU for $750. Wish I still had those in my collection..

Yes the boat looks just like the yellow one. I know it is at least 20 yrs old. The motor is a 7.5 k&b never run. Motor is very clean and a ton of compression. Hope to get it running soon.
