What Brand Catamaran Is This?

I posted this in the Challenge thread, but it is more appropriate here. I am looking at purchasing a 30' Catamaran, but I don't have a clue what brand or year it is. I can't find the HIN on the boat. Does anybody have a clue what brand this is?

it's a Sailcraft......I can't remember what this one is called but it's in the same family as the iriquois and the commanche.

It's an Iroquois built by Sailcraft, most probably the Mk. II, definitely not the Mk. IIA which has longer aft hulls.

A good cat from Mcalpine Downie from the 60,s . one of these won the round Great Britain race in 1968 ! There are two on this Island ,! they have swing keels in each hull , quite a fast boat in their day

Thanks guys! You've been a huge help! Now, I am debating saving the boat from being crushed and restoring it to the condition it should be in! It obviously needs a lot of work
