Hello Johan,

The serial number does not match to a 570, but the boat number does. It is probably 1975, but the data is not guaranteed perfect.
You can join the forum as a full member with lifetime access to the technical specification pages and pictures etc, for a one time fee of £5.
Post more information soon, we all like to see other peoples Shetlands.

Thank´s!
I already registered and payed today.
I think the number might be 56887, hard to see.

Is the number on an oval metal plate with 'Shetland 570' printed above the number, near the steering wheel?
According to the boat specs section, 570 serial numbers ended at 3039 when production stopped in 1980, and the 570 was redesigned as the Kestrel.

The model and number is also stamped into the transom (requirement for every boat made). Starboard side just under the rubbing strip. Got another somewhere with rubbing strip but it’s just out of shot above number.
