Caldercraft kit I think Phil , can't find it listed so might be out of production. Looks like a 75ft MFV built in WW2

I remember seeing MFV 1, it was finally burnt on St Marys Island about 1976, after it was given to the apprentices at Chatham DKyd to convert into a R&R project which went wrong. The PAS had dozens of them some of which went into the RMAS. On the Clyde they burnt a large number in one go near Faslane to dispose of them.
