1984 52' Irwin 52 Cruising Yacht
The owner's commitment to this yacht has not wavered and another $60,000 worth of improvements, maintenance and upgrades has just taken place. This is a must-see yacht for those that want a worry-free boat. Every system has been extremely well maintained and most have been upgraded.
To call this yacht just "upgraded" or "extensively refit" would be a disservice to what the current owner has done for this yacht. NAUTORIOUS has undergone a complete restoration, starting with peeling and re-laminating the hull bottom with additional blister-preventive reinforcements, re-coring the fore- and side-decks, gutting and installing new wiring and new plumbing systems, replacing overhead hatches, rebuilding the engine and transmission, etc. The owner, recognizing the sterling cruising reputation of this venerable model, has spared no expense in making this by far the finest example of the Irwin 52 available anywhere. With modern, smart upgrades including solar panels and a wind generator, flat screen TV and memory foam mattresses throughout, more than $450,000 has been invested in replacing and upgrading her mechanical and sailing systems. Virtually nothing has been untouched over the past ten years, making this yacht ready to go cruising in style.
