1981 Irwin 52

Saint Petersburg, Florida

$159,500

RARE TO THE MARKET!

IRWIN 52' 3-CABIN LAYOUT!

This Ted Irwin design is arguably his most successful boat with more than 250 boats launched between 1976 and 1987. The three cabin layout, with a very spacious main salon, a roomy aft master suite and two separate sleeping cabins up front make this the perfect cruising or liveaboard boat for a family. This vessel offers substantially more than a mid 40's center cockpit boat, yet can be sailed and docked by two people. She's capable of going anywhere in comfort and safety!
