Default Velocity VR1 HIN correct??

I was offered a nice 29 VR1 from 2005 but I wonder if the HIN is correct. I couldnīt see or take a photo of it because itīs hidden below the rubrail at starboard and the boat is in the water. So the owner send a photo from the papers and the MIC is VMD which translates to MIAMI CARON BOAT WORKS, out of business since 1980.

Can anybody tell me how the typical HIN of a VR1 looks like?

I'll take a look at my 2005 VR 1 later today and let you know. Any more details on the boat and pictures.

Are you sure it's not "VMP"?

yes, very sure. Itīs clearly VMD. The whole HIN is VMD29061A405, which makes sense - except the MIC.

Padraig: As a newbie I cannot post a link, as I donīt have 10 posts yet. I have some pictures from the seller but I donīt want to post them as they are not mine. My wife took some photos but she has .. uuhm a different focus. Iīll try to post one anyway.

The boat itself seems to be in pretty good shape and quite stock. Original 496 HO and factory flame painting -so I was told. Isotta steering wheel and bimini, but no trailer.
Asking price is $51k, which is way too much in my opinion. Itīs for sale in Europe - Berlin/Germany

Built January 4th of 05...........Umm 51K and no trailer...

seems to me the title doesn't match the boat, even if the HIN on the boat is correct, its a paper work nightmare

VMP is Initial Marine Inc which is Velocity.... what's the title & registration # look like? VM"P" or VM"D"? may be a typo from the last time it changed hands?

Change the "D" to a "P" & your get Intitial Marine Inc.

maybe itīs just a typo - VMP can quickly become VMD.
But which is correct anyway? When I search Velocity I get VMS and VPW


oops, you were faster...

ok, letīs say the hull is marked VMP29061A405, the year is correct, 29 sounds good to me, #61? How can I find out if itīs really a VR 1?

How can I post photos without a link? As paying member?
