Hi Clem,
Welcome to the forum. Try looking on the exterior starboard side of the transom and see if there is a small plate or some letters and numbers etched into the hull. If there is the first part of this HIN can tell you about the manufacture. There should be one somewhere on the boat. Here's a webpage that can tell you about Hull Identification Numbers:
