I'm a betting man and I wouldn't back that as likely. Just looking at the KW site, they do make that style of boat, but I don't see that hull in their range, though admittedly the boat pictured looks like it has been languishing there for decades, so unlikely to be in the current line-up anyway.
I don't know the history of the 773 but there have been plenty of boats which have beened copied with hull tweaks or had completely different decks. For example Bass strait offshore 24, which is a tweaked 233 hull.
This boat looks American due to the walk around and the built in trim tab.
I could certainly imagine that if a copy of this boat built by haines could haved ended up as the 773.
The 773 design is roughly 30+ years old, you can count on it being an in-house original design, though obviously inspired by the F233. The boat in question here strikes me as a thinly-disguised copy of the hull matched to a custom deck moulding. Would have cost an absolute bomb to get to that stage, whoever was behind it would have dropped a bundle of $$$. A good choice of a hull to imitate though, it represents the acme of Australian deep-vee trailer boat hulldesign with that smooth bog-free ride.
Clearly not that boat. It is unusual to find a boat with a flat sheerline where the vertical separation of chine and sheer aft , is diverging. The barnyard boat and the 773 have it. It is not the most pleasing thing to the eye, imo, but I alluded earlier to why I thought it was drawn that way, to overcome a widespread prejudice against boats with the droopy nose, like the Jenks and 24ft Mustang had, even though it wasn't a problem in reality.
