Sinking luxury yacht builder Fairline Boats could be refloated if talks with would-be buyers are successful.
Several companies are involved in discussions with adminstratrors for the stricken Oundle, Corby and Ipswich-based firm.
Approaches are from trade buyers to private equity firms with interest in purchasing kit, contacts and the brand name.
A spokesman for adminstrators FRP Advisory refused to give details about potential purchasers or the progress of any talks. It could be three months before a deal is concluded.
Fairline Boats went into administration on December 2 - two months after being bought by equity firm Wessex Bristol for a deferred sum of £2 million. Three weeks before Christmas 380 jobs were axed with 69 staff kept on to service existing orders.
