The Hirsch group was a charter organization mainly out of the Virgin Islands. They ordered boats to their specifications for the charter trade both from Irwin and Gulfstar. The boats were production quality and designed for coastal and caribe cruising much like the Moorings/Beneteaus are today. These are not blue water boats but fine live aboard cruising boats that sail decently, have good tankage, excellent space and good prices in the market. They are built from the same hull molds that supported the non-hirsch versions of the brand but often have different tankage and accomodation arrangements.
