General Details

Popular cruising center cockpit with Perkins 4-108 diesel. Roomy and staysail Ketch rigged for easy handling and center cockpit for a great live aboard space. Walk-thru under center cockpit. The current owners have done an extensive refit throughout the entire vessel. Once, you step aboard and below you will notice the detail craftsmanship from electrical to woodworking all thru out Impetuous. Is she worth the drive to view and my answer is most defiantly yes!  This Irwin 37 Mark III is cruise ready with solar panels and wind generator



Most of the interior has been rebuilt in the last 10 years.  Most of the fiberglass liner has been veneered with teak to make a warmer interior masking the "plastic" boat interior.  There is abundant storage throughout the boat, a home for everything. The settees have been deepened for comfort & to conceal the return air conditioning ducting in the toe kick. The Formica on the head bulkheads was replaced along with addition of Corian countertop.  The shower pan in the head is fiberglassed laminated 3" + up the bulkhead to form a pan with painted finish. The aft head space was converted into a hobby room or office. The galley was totally gutted and new joinery installed allowing a very functional galley with abundant storage. Throughout the boat storage space was built in to maintain a non-cluttered interior with space for provisioning, tools, spares, etc, along with hidden security compartments. Regarding interior lighting, there is sufficient task & reading lighting.  There is LED accent lighting to illuminate the boat at night at a low ambient level conserving battery capacity at anchor.
