1979 Irwin 52



REF1007: The only Irwin 52 for sale in Europe and VAT paid. "The Irwin 52 was a trend-setting boat. It was a deck-saloon cruiser before there were deck-saloon cruisers. What's more, the Irwin 52, with more than 250 hulls launched, may be the most popular big boat, 50-foot-plus, ever built. These beamy ketch-rigged cruisers offered no apologies for their motor yacht-like interior accommodations, spacious cockpit, wide side decks and raised bulwarks. It boasts of good performance under power as well as sail. When you take a look at many of today's larger cruising boats, it seems that Ted Irwin was a visionary. The boat has design features that can only be found in new boats costing many times more. The 52 represents a unique blend of living space and underway performance". Current owner is the second and the boat has never been chartered. You are welcome to contact Alvea Yachts for additional information about this very reputable Irwin 52 for sale.
