The Irwin 52 MK II was the creation of renowned boat builder and designer Ted Irwin, a true visionary of his time. The 52 MK II is one of the most well respected and sought after large sailing yachts to ever be produced.  These beamy ketch rigged cutters sport a fantastic interior floorplan that feels spacious and open while providing three staterooms and accommodations for up to eight crewmembers and is often a top choice for large charter and cruising yachts.

This Irwin 52 MK II is already well equipped for both charter and cruising.  She is equipped with Furuno navigation equipment, Roberson D100 autopilot, and a 14 battery house bank with a 7.7 KW Westerbeke generator, and 600W solar.  The spacious salon features two plush wrap around seating areas, two captain style chairs, a large folding teak table, and ample lighting through the large portlights and windows.  The fully stocked galley has all the amenities for comfortable cruising and plenty of storage for both dry and perishable provisions.  The aft master stateroom has a substantial amount of headroom due to the raised aft deck and has a open and luxurious feel thanks to the large beam of this yacht.  The forward cabin has a large vee berth that is larger that most other master staterooms!  The third cabin has two single bunks that would be perfect for children or the occasional overnight guest.

This Irwin 52 MK II is priced to sell and the owner is willing to consider all reasonable offers.  This is your opportunity to get behind the helm of one of the most sought after large cruisers or add another yacht to your charter fleet.  To arrange a showing please contact the listing broker today!

Manufacturer Provided Description

Handcrafted by artisans, the Irwin 52 presents unparalleled luxury with distinctive styling. Designed as a matched system, every part specifically interrelates to provide quality, reliability and durability. The Irwin 52 features over 150 standard equipment items making time spent aboard relaxing and enjoyable. Each 52 features items such as a roller furling headstay, refrigeration, stain resistant upholstery, and ergonomically designed chairs for the breakfast bar and salon. The masthead ketch rig is engineered to powerfully and swiftly drive through the water. To make sail handling a snap there is also an optional furling main sail. The 52 also features advantages such as foam-cored horizontal deck surfaces for stiffness and insulation, plus corrosion resistant, stainless steel deck hardware. The raised quarterdeck and drop-level soles allow plenty of headroom from the V-berth to the aft stateroom. Richly finished in teak, the salon is large and ideal for entertaining. The galley has a tremendous amount of counter space for food preparation and features an LPG gimbaled stove with oven, a refrigerator / freezer, a pantry, and a washer / dryer.
