I highly suggest buying a comfortable live aboard boat that will make you happy versus the boat that you might take somewhere some day. The long distance cruisers are typically expensive have draw backs. If you are serious about this, I am happy to discuss.

Friend has an Irwin 39 of that vintage. Typical build quality for a production boat of that era. And he has had some success in longer PHRF races. But not my choice for crossing oceans.

Where do u want to go and what is your top budget. Irwins are fine but never my first choice for long distance cruising. They are great carrib boats or coastal, but Many have blister issues and there could be better boats for long distance cruising. There is no suich thing as a bluewater boat. Tell me your budget and ideal itinerary, I will give u my opinions. Others will also.
