Wind Dancer

A gorgeous yacht – ready for living aboard or cruising!   The Irwin 52 continues to gain more of a following with time.  This Ted Irwin design is arguably his most successful, with more than 250 boats launched between 1976 and 1987.  This is the newer and more desirable Series II model.      The three cabin layout, with a very spacious main salon and roomy island-queen master aft, provides 6’6″ headroom.  Even the center cockpit offers space and headroom not typically available in a private yacht that a couple can manage.   This vessel offers substantially more than a mid 40’s center cockpit boat, yet can be sailed and docked by two people.  She’s attractive to the eye and has been the pride of four owners thus far.  She is capable of going anywhere in comfort and safety.   Wind Dancer is an excellent value in today’s market – a modern design that gets high marks from today’s experts (see John Kretschmer’s review in the November, 2008 issue of Sailing Magazine), an extensive equipment list, and many upgrades.   Don’t miss the opportunity to acquire this excellent cruising yacht.
