Here is a tough old battleship Irwin, the original 43 aft cockpit sloop, handily and incrementally renovated by the current owner over the past decade.

A heavy build vessel with a very roomy cockpit and interior, the tall bow is flared to shed seas, and freeboard is ample, the ride will be comfortable in 6-7 foot seas, making this a capable blue water and long excursion cruiser.

Down below is a large main cabin with plenty of seating, galley with stove and a large, refrigerated ice box, head with shower, forward berth, and two aft quarter berths... room for plenty, a luxury for two.

The original Westerbeke 30 hp engine was replaced with a 60 hp Perkins, with the entire driveline upgraded to handle the increased power, and virtually all plumbing and wiring for both the machinery and domestic systems replaced as well.

The mast was refurbished and all the standing and running rigging replaced, and the entire cabin sole has been professionally replaced with beautiful, tough bamboo.

One owner preference alteration was to pin the centerboard at five feet of draft, a reversible modification, because the owner did not like the design of the lift mechanism, felt the boat performed fine without the deployed centerboard, and, as a long-distance cruiser, did not wish to risk being stuck with it down.

Fully equipped with ample and serviceable sail inventory, safety gear, and spares, this boat is ready to take you anywhere you wish to go.

Information On Condition

The photos tell the story, the vessel is in excellent condition for the age, many improvements and renovations over the past decade as in description, hull, decking, and rudder have good sound under the hammer, and everything works and runs well according to the owner, the boat should survey well.
