1970 Irwin Aft cockpit sloop

18 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

The Irwin 32 is a very successful traditional and timeless boat. Designed as a basic family cruiser, it has fulfilled that role admirably. This center board model is perfectly suited for cruising the Bay or other coastal estuaries. Two sleep forward in 6’ 6” vee berths. The main salon with 6’ 2” headroom will sleep three additional on twin settees and quarter berth. There is a private enclosed head with lavatory, a full galley with stainless steel sink, two burner alcohol stove and ice box. Power is a Universal Atomic Four gas engine (inoperable, unknown problem). The cockpit is good sized with tiller steering. Sail inventory consists of main and 130% jib on a Harken furler. Electronics include knotmeter, and bulkhead mounted compass.

Equipment on Board:

This is a great cruising layout. A vee berth is forward with storage under. The enclosed head compartment follows next aft to port. The main cabin features settees port and starboard, a quarter berth aft to port, hanging locker and a dining table with drop leaf amidships. There are built-in shelves and storage cubbies in various places around the cabin. There can never be enough storage! The galley is aft to starboard just inside the companionway stairs.
