It looks like an ex Ship's Lifeboat hull to me.


The stepped gunwhale line has been added to the original gunwhale of the lifeboat hull.


If you look carefully, you can see the join just under the name under the bow, running parallel to the cockpit gunwhale.

Time expired ship's lifeboats used to be very popular hull conversions.


The "Cachalot" used by the BBC in filming The Big Six was a conversion on a much older clinker lifeboat, but with exactly the same hull lines.
