I am looking for any information on this design. My son has just purchased one that is in the Netherlands and was supposedly built in England. Thanks for your time.

Used to be one raced out of Wellington. Damn quick downwind, but pretty slow upwind in a chop....

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Might be Oldsmobile, now in Waikawa?

Racetrack only has 3 on record. Oldsmobile which is raced still in a Waikawa, Prawn Broker, which hasn’t had a race recorded on racetrack since 2016 in Aucklald, and Positive Touch, which hasn’t raced recorded since 2009, in Auckland also.

Yes, PT in New Cal.  A few in Aus but don't think they had the same pace as the Kiwi ones
