Project boat that never got started. My wife and I bought this boat about a year ago with the intention of living aboard and repairing. This plan has changed after a recent addition to our family. The boat has been in the water at an Annapolis marina for about eight years. This boat needs a complete refit, every system needs to be replaced or repaired, including the engine which needs to be replaced, but this boat is repairable. I just wanted to front load the harsh realities before waxing eloquent about this boat’s potential. When you step onto the boat you can immediately see it’s potential. This isn’t a boat built to be the fastest or sail closest to the wind, but to get you there in comfort and safety. Per the reviews I’ve read about the Irwin’s, these boats are built solidly. It has a spacious cockpit, wide side decks and raised bulwarks. I’m 6’ and never have to duck my head on this boat. The companionway door leads into the salon with the galley starboard and aft and a table with seating or sleeping area mirrors the galley. There are three cabins, a stateroom in the stern with attached head, port cabin with attached head, and v-berth cabin in the bow. The third head is on the starboard side opposite the port cabin. This boat just feels spacious when you’re on it, and has a ton of storage areas. It could easily serve as a live-aboard cruiser, and could definitely take you around the world once it has been refitted.
