“Sundance” is a good example of an Irwin 52 of her age, and has been well maintained and cared for by a knowledgeable owner. She offers many cruising and live aboard features found only on much larger vessels and has a spacious, comfortable interior in good condition. She is in sail away condition and would only need to take on food, drink, and personal items to be on your way.

All hatches are new aluminum. All windows in salon are new. All opening ports have been replaced. The yacht is fully air conditioned with three AC units to keep the boat very cool in the warm tropics. And heat in the winter.
The salon is a very spacious area with port and starboard settees. The room is furnished with teak bulkheads, cabinetry and trim, with an insulated headliner of off-white vinyl. Opening hatches above and large windows, both forward and to the sides provide for a bright and airy salon. There is also a table for cocktails or meals and a counter separating the galley.
The master stateroom is large and very private. There is an ‘L’ shaped settee with storage, hanging lockers, and a large mirror. A queen mattress provides comfort and a separate A/C unit is installed in this area. The private ensuite head includes a separate shower with tub, vanity, wash basin and electrical toilet in good serviceable condition.
The guest quarters include two furnished staterooms forward, one V-Berth with new custom made mattresses. The other starboard with upper and lower berths are both air-conditioned and are well ventilated from opening hatches and portholes. There is also a forward guest head to port with a large stall shower compartment, vanity, washbasin and electrical toilet, also in good serviceable condition.
