Welcome, it looks like an Aquacraft Attacker to me...There are a few in the CMBA, more details from one owner here, but search on aquacraft and you'll find a few more posts:-

thanks for input,yes i meant craft not marine ,have seen that post before and certainly has similar lines and shape of hull looks the same but the deck at the back not quite the same as the attacker pictured,but definately on the right track.i will search aquacraft like you have suggested thanks,i will put some pictures on later of how it is now which will help id it,and of course show it off! have spent a few years restoring it and time on engine.another reason wanting to know was for insuring it need to know a value,rang navgator and general and up to 3,000 pounds they were 162 pounds third party ,valued above that they want it certified, would appreciate your thoughts rapier thanks

These aren't my forte am afraid. Values are driven by what people may be prepared to pay for it at a given time and are always subjective. There are few around as I said, but seldom come to market in restored condition...
