Sailormann..we had an Irwin44 for the first 2 years of our retirement and she took us everywhere up and down the east coast and Bahamas in safety and comfort. These are coastal boats like the Huntebenelina's but they are quite comfortable and sail pretty decently (you cannot say this about ALL Irwins) and they make a great live aboard platform at a reasonable price for this type of cruising. The 38's are also excellent values for the same thing. The Citations have a pretty good reputation as very good sailing bay boats.
Fit and finish is about what you would expect on pproduction boats of that era. What model are you looking at?

Got an email from a broker about a 31 foot Irwin Citation - 1984 vintage. Asking in the mid - 40's I believe... I am not very familiar with these, although the phrase "Irwin Citation" is something I have heard before, I had always assumed they were 40 foot boats for some reason.

Actually - the more I look, the better the C&C looks. I am either going to spend the money upfront (buy newer) or I am going to end up spending it over the next two or three years (buy older and upgrade), but either way it looks like a decent boat costs close to 100K these days ....
