Looks like a one off display model to me. So you will probably have to source a similar hull and scratch build the rest.

Agreed the props and rudders don't look functional.  It was made as an ornament rather than a r/c boat

Some squinting may be needed there! It's not quite a Ferrari to a Chevette, it's close though, I should know, I had one of the latter :-))

Well I did try Specsavers, I also owned a Chevette hatchback, MNU 51P, it cost me 50 & was a very reliable little motor.  O0

I will give you that, with an 8' battlecruiser on the roof, it was fun on roundabouts though! I would rather have a Ferrari, with fishing rods :}

If you google 'sports boat model' then similar static models come up immediately.
Maybe with a bit more searching a working model can be turned up.

Lindbergs "Sport Fisherman" is probably the nearest, but being a discontinued item any examples are rare and likely to cost several limbs.
