My most recent boat purchase is this Matchbox Tinforcer. It is a brand new casting for 2017 designated model # MB1047. The card back doesnt contain any information detailing if it is modeled after any existing police boat in actual use. It is fitted with twin out boards and does not have a scale size designation on the base. The interior is fitted with 4 seats relative to placement with in the side window area. So it would be approxiametely 32 to 36 feet in length- which is probably an underestimate on my part.

A tid bit I overlooked when I made this post is that the hull portion is one of only a few zamac castings issued by Matchbox. And I just a photo of the 2019 version and it has a plastic hull piece now too! :(
