Subject: Seamaster/Vanmaster history?

Hi - non-club member looking for some info, please!
Husband and self have recently bought a 21 foot, GRP hull, 2-berth boat with a brass plaque saying it was built by RG Sparrow, Vanmaster Boats, Dunmow, s/n 5000 and something (I forget the exact number). It is basically identical to the Seamaster 21 that the club website says began production in 1956.
We were told our boat was built circa 1974, but we suspect that it might be older (1960s?). Can anyone help us with some history/background to the two companies? We know Seamaster bought out Vanmaster Boats, but we don't know when, and we don't know when Seamaster might have stopped producing boats as Vanmasters, or when the 21 and its variants disappeared - prior to 1974?
Can anyone shed any light on the subject? Thanks!

- Jo
