I just saw an add listing this cat for sale....
The add however does not tell what kind of boat this is, it is listed as a 34 ft...
Supposedly built in 1976...
Anybody has an idea what I am looking at ?

I'll do a first guess myself...

Extended Iroquois ? (Would explain the non-standard rudder setup)
But keels instead of boards ??? (I think a few have been built with keels)

Most of the Iroquois were built in England and came over here on their own bottoms.

Bljones-

Don't think so, the transom is wrong... so are the ports on the cabintop.

Mistery probably solved ...

A member of the Iroquois group told me this is definitely an Iroquois although it has been extensively modified...

I wonder if this extension to 34ft on the already narrow beam of the Iroquois was a smart move ...

Unless they altered the sailplan, it shouldn't be too much of an issue as I understand it. YMMV, but I recall several other small cats having a slight extension of the hulls, much like this one has done, to increase the cargo carrying capacity and add buoyancy aft-often to counteract the addition of davits or other fairly heavy equipment aft.
