The Irwin 32's were better constructed than the Endeavour. Endeavour really cheapened these boats in most ways. The Endeavour version has less and lower density ballast and eliminated the centerboard and deep keel options. We have had two Endeavours in our family. While comfortable live aboards, I would never suggest that they are even remotely a great cruising boat. The Citations tended to be lighter duty boats than the I-32.
