Details
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 sailing performance. With her 44' waterline she lopes along at 8 kts on a reach.

With her minimum draft of 5ft 6" she can go almost anywhere and her drop centre board to 11ft makes her an excellent ocean going passagemaker.
The main saloon and all cabins are air-conditioned with separate units, there is a front loader washer-dryer, the fridge and freezer cooling system has been upgraded.
There is an extensive inventory of sails and a huge range of spares for cruising in remote areas.
