passage making 28-32 footer
I cruised full time aboard a Irwin 41 for 5 years. They are great boats for COASTAL cruises and short island hopping, if you are not in a hurry. Eventhough I am a fan of Irwins, if you seriously intend to do extended off-shore sailing, you should consider other boats. As Jeff alluded, they are NOT blue-water boats.
