Me and a mate of mine are going to pick up this boat tomorrow, which he has purchased.
Still has the Internation Plastic ID plate and would be about 15.5 to 16 ft long.

The question is, what did they call this type of Caribbean boat. Smiley

Hi there Moggy,
Up the top of the page you will see a button named "Search". Click on that, then type:  Belmont.
I feel that will give you the answer when you take a closer look at ALL the posts there.

Thanks MERCMAN, thought it might be, but wasn't sure.

Got it home home today and gave it quick clean up, dead rats etc.
A closer inspection will be done over the weekend on how he will tackle the project  Smiley

Nice pick up Cool. I feel as if I've seen that vessel previously. The big light mounted on the bowrail reminds me of something?
No, it's not the PT73 either Neil! Grin

LOL, Didn't quite dig it up from the ocean floor, but the owner would fit the bill with PT73 Cheesy

Hi knowledgeable people.

I'm trying to help my dad sell his pride and joy. He's had the boat for as long as I can remember, and unfortunately doesn't know much about it. So I thought someone here might be able to help.

As far as we know, it is from 1968. It has a 'bertram v19' sticker on the side. From the brief research I have done, this could be a type of carribean?!

Here's some pics. Any help would be much appreciated.

Anyone able to point me in the right direction for more info? I've just realised that this is a thread predominately for vintage outboards moreso than vintage boats.

The information in this thread in particuar is very useful though.

In regard to the colours available at that time,they were not very interesting. An olive  green shade, a light powder blue, gold, white and red
i think there may have been a turquoise to They gelcoat seemed to fade very quickly too but can be restored. I had a vast collection of Australian boat brochures and memorabilia but donated it all to the Sydney Maritime Museum when I moved to Malaysia to live. Still have great mental recall and will and to this site as  from time to time.o. I agree that boats as cars should be kept as original as possible. I remember a Caribbean Crosby being put around the course at Cabarita in Sydney. The soft chine certainly had it up on it's side at the Ryde end turnbouy. I think with a 100H.P. Merc they were Good for about 40 m/p/h.
I remember the colours quite well because a lot of the first generation Caribbean V bottom boats were sold by Toby Nichols at Belmont south of Newcastle. The first v boats The V14 and V15 were flopped off the American Glastron but the 16 was an American Dorsett Hull like the aerier  Belmont, Catalina and SanJuan. Lots of these boats and early Pride boats were on on the water up there and  Central coast where I lived.
