The Monte Carlo Offshorer boats are said to be built at R.A.M.

They may have been built at different locations as I have seen some being built in Viareggio, could have been at Overmarine.
Re your hull, if the condition is good it has a value, but not very high so a complete refit will be a lot more expensive than buying a boat in working order. So I would forget about the heritage and build something fun..
