28 foot Irwin

The first boat I considered buying was a 1974 Irwin 32.5 Center Cockpit. Luckily, my surveyor was very thorough and found so many potential and existing problems that I withdrew my offer. Therefore, my first piece of advice is find a good surveyor. DO NOT use one suggested by the broker. Every boat is different and everyone is a compromise. All systems must be examined for their condition and potential failure. Look around on the internet (yachtworld.com) for comparable Irwins and other boats that size.
Good luck,
Jim
