General description
The Irwin 38 MK II is a great blend of bluewater performance and spacious accommodations. Belowdecks, there are two comfortable staterooms with private heads, a sophisticated navigation station with an upholstered swing-out seat, and a well-appointed galley that would delight a gourmet chef. The spacious main salon has two large settees, a custom small dining table,(original table and fill-in cushion available) and more. The master stateroom features a queen-sized berth, a generous hanging locker, a vanity with mirror, reading lights, a storage bin, and an upholstered swing-out swivel stool.

The vessel has a high-performance winged keel and a well-thought-out deck layout, with the result that this is a center cockpit sloop that is easily handled and sails well.
