Three words best describe Footloose...Elegance, Comfort, and Performance.


This is one of the best deals on an Irwin on the market! This beautiful classic ketch features a centerboard keel with a minimum draft of just 4'6". Her warm and comfortable interior is tastefully decorated and features beautiful teak workmanship that you don't come across everyday. The marine air conditioning was just installed in 2011. She has been very well maintained, sails like a dream,  and would be the perfect cruising or live aboard boat. Don't pass up your chance at this nautical classic - come have a look at Footloose today.


Accommodations & Layout
Footloose has an off-white exterior with a burgundy whale stripe accented by a robust teak and stainless rub rail with an elegant foredeck. Her foredeck is flush and very roomy. She has a large, open cockpit ideal for entertaining guests or enjoying a quiet drink at the end of the day. In addition, the cockpit also has custom-fitted cushions for added comfort. The cockpit opens onto the wide deck for sure footing when going forward. Finally, her long water line gives her an overall sleek appearance adding to the appeal. Her interior is even more inviting with her warm, teak interior and spacious layout. She has a gourmet galley with twin sinks, large upright refrigerator/freezer that runs on either 12-volt or 110-volt, gimbaled propane oven-stove, and broad working area. There is excellent ventilation with the hatches/windows and a Hella fan.  The galley has ample storage space providing easy stowage of kitchen appliances and provisions. The large main saloon allows for elegant entertaining or cozy dining for two or more. In addition, the lined ceilings add to the luxury of the boat while providing excellent insulation from heat and cold in extreme climates.  The mast is covered in dark blue faux-leather for additional coziness. The master stateroom aft, and the forward guest stateroom are spacious and well designed, each with their own head, with a full-size electric flush toilet (fresh water or salt) in the master head. The guest stateroom features a custom mattress.  The detailed work in the master stateroom is also worth noting with the full size bed, mirror and storage galore. She has a furling genoa, stackpack mainsail with all reefing lines easily accessible, and well-sized self-tailing genoa winches.
