Not the same boat, but I wondered if they may have been made by the same company.

Hi True Blue.
Some comments you may find useful.

Reply #28 & #29 boat is powered by 1965 Merc 650.

Reply #31 & #32 are in fact the same boat (Pride). Pics show the same cutdown windscreen. Also see there is a 35hp Evinrude IN the rear of the boat, against the well.


Keep up the digging, you are certainly good at it!

Found this Bellboy on Marketplace. There were only a couple of pictures. Would have like to have see what the inside had looked like.

Carribean Sea Sprite.

I think that it is the same or similar model to the one that Mark from the Board purchased in 2009.

Mark S provided some information at the time, advising that "the Sea Sprites were made in 1966 & 1967."

Here are some photos of the Caribbean Sea Sprite that Michael (i.e. "larysumi") bought off eBay in 2009. At the time of his purchase, Michael was interested in what one looked like when it was original (i.e. dash badges, gauges etc.), and whether anyone had any articles/brochures on these little boats. He was also curious about what trailer manufacturers were around then (i.e. whether redco and tinka were available then etc.), and what sort of trailer would have come with his new boat. The trailer on the blue boat looks quite old, but i'm not sure if it would be as old as the boat.

Another Caribbean Sea Sprite. Looks to have a different window to Michael's boat.
