    You could try Ardwell marine , they may be able to put you onto them for they had a couple of those Vimar in when I was down there last.

    Vimar as a company do not seem to exist anymore. I had a Vimar 504 with a bolt on cuddy until earlier this year when I sold it to Ardwell Marine.

    The open boat version may still be in production with this company http://www.pepeboatyard.co.uk/index_files/Page5675.htm

    The Beta1 looks identical both hull and top moulding to the old Vimar 504 - so I presume that's where the old Vimar mould ended up.

    The Beta2 has a cuddy - but unlike the Vimar bolt on cuddy the Beta2 appears to have a completely different top moulding, which incorporates a cuddy.

    If it's any consolation the Vimar bolt on cuddy was a bit lightweight and tended to creak a lot and develop stress fractures. I reinforced mine with wood battens.

    Somewhere I have a phone number for the boatyard that was an agent for Vimar. A couple of years ago they still had some spare hatch covers - but not a cuddy as far as I know.

    Just moved house so a lot of my old paperwork is packed away. If I come across the yard details I will let you know.

    I really enjoyed my Vimar, fast and seaworthy. Kept it's nose up in the worst of seas.
