Default Norwegian 50' Goldfish - familiar? Seen one?

Just came across my Twitter feed - Norwegian-built, I have never heard of these, wondered if anyone else had. 49' Goldfish - Norwegian-built; Twin Mercury 1100s w/ M8 drives. 2014 - full carbon hull , 12.5' beam - said to hit 90+ knots. Big boat...not that old, but design looks kinda dated.

My bet is there's a connection to these .. Axopar 37 SC » Axopar Boats
A friend has a 27 footer and he says that they maybe be Finnish built they're actually engineered in some Eastern European country that you wouldn't normally associate with boating at all . .

From their website, looks like the bow is designed to be replaceable

They make only RIB boats in longer lengths. The 38' with twin Mercs should move pretty good.

They are a very neat brand. Founded and owned by an ex offshore racer. They’ve been around since the early nineties building high performance ribs and cruisers.

Theyve built several 36/38 ribs with Ilmor V10 power that ran over 100 knots. The 36 was a very popular boat for Norwegian special forces for quite a while.

Nothing in common with the Axopars. The axopars are Finnish designed and polish built. They are a lot of boat for the money and run well but definitely have some cut corners in regards to long lasting build quality
