Would that be the 1/72nd one? I built a static one a few years back for my mates grandson, if memory serves, it is about 11 inches long, I think there was a Plastic Magic episode in Model Boats mag that featured one some time back.....

If you enter in the main search engine airfix vosper, you will find the airfix kit described, a small boat, others have rc'd ones better than my build, but you get the idea.

There's an article in MODEL BOATS JULY issue about motorising the ITALIERI Vosper MTB , @ 1:35 scale it's 63cm x 16cm (25" x 6.5" to the inebriated  %% ) and , at 80 , it's cheaper to buy him some sweets . . .

Have a look at dodgy geezer's plans for the KeilKraft Terrier:

Quick and cheap to make.

Are you OK, geezer? Seem not to have seen a post from you lately.

The Terrier was my very first motorised boat that I built as a lad after many years of plastic models.
