Sailormann will become famous soon enough
It's not so much the "tippiness" as it is the "breakiness"

That's what I was thinking. Lots of really good options for 30k if you only want one hull.

Well coming in late on this one too. Some people should check there facts before spouting off.

The Iroquois UK web site is actually on two sites as I understand one is orphaned and has no access by former owner and the other is almost non active. There is the Delphi forum and a new group on Yahoo.

IroquoisCats : Iroquois Catamarans

Having just purchased one I think they are a great boat and will suit my needs well.

Smile Sweet deal!

I was reading in this thread earlier where iroquois were priced 60 to 70 grand. well fellas, I just aquired hull #26 for a whopping 4 grand. I have about a years worth of work before I sail her, but she is complete with a full set of bloody red sails!
I posted pictures on yahoo's iroquoiscats group if any one wants to see her. I figure when I get done I will have about 20k in her, but what an oppurtunity to own a work of art I see equivalant to a piccaso!

Hey D,

Good buy for sure.

Iroquois and the MKII which I have followed for years seem to have a price ceiling around 30K in North America, sad. But I'm not complaining since I bought one. It is a great boat and not a barge like a Gemini, came through the Erie Canal with one under motor, no bridge deck clearance. Don't like the layout either, personal preference.

The nice thing with the Iroquois are her lines, a Greyhound. Unfortunately the accommodations are somewhat tight in the doubles which seems to be the drawback. A redesigned boat would bump the doubles I'm sure, Rod where are you?

These boats are worth a look and check out the active group on Yahoo.

I ended up buying an Iroquois MkII this spring as well, for fairly cheap money. Needed (and still needs) work, but she's sailing now, took her out for her maiden voyage last weekend with Sailingdog.

They are 30-40 year old boats and will be priced accordingly. I expect an average condition Iroquois will sell in the mid-$20k's and a bristol condition one higher. All my research shows them selling around those prices. Of course my purchase & darwinless's will drag the average price down now

Dear Catsailor07 and other Iroquois Enthusiasts,

My name is Peter Humby from the UK. I'm the Webmaster for the relaunched Iroquois Owners Association site.

I am currently in the process of adding archive material to the site such as old newsletters and Sailcraft documents.

However, to give the new site a boost, it would be great to get some more recent material such as photos, personal experiences, stories etc. So as an Iroquois enthusiast, I was wondering if you could spare some time to look at the site and perhaps send me some material to include. You are of course very welcome to register and contribute material directly.

Please note the address of the site is:
iroquois-owners.org.uk
(can also be reached at iroquois.org.uk)

Many thanks,
Peter Humby, IOA Webmaster.
