First series 1021-1280 built by Maximar Boat Builders. The second series was built by Bristol Aeroplane Plastics and since the early numbers (1250-1280) were overlapping, the EB (Elite Bristol) prefix was used to distinguish them.


First two prototypes were built by Lotus at Edmonton, the rest (1003P-1020P) were built by Maximar, just like the first series.
