About this Irwin 38


1986 Irwin 38 Splice of Heaven is now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.

Irwin 38 built in Florida in 1986 and sailed the Bahamas and California coast before the big adventure … sailing across the Pacific to Australia in 2013.

From California to Mexico, to the Marquesas, then collecting black pearls in the Tuamotu Islands en route to Tahiti, and the crystal waters of Bora Bora. Onwards to the Cook Islands, Tonga, and New Caledonia before settling for a quiet life cruising the Whitsunday islands, East coast NSW, and Bass Strait.

The centre cockpit is a sought-after comfortable cruising yacht and her size is very manageable by a single sailor or shorthanded.

The aft swim platform is large and extends the boat so much that she feels a lot bigger than a 38. The deep swim ladder with large rungs is a simple entry to the water. Her flat decks are wide and easy to get around on.

The aft section on deck is very wide and supports a serious BBQ and fish catch and clean area plus a couple of champagne seats to kick back on. High sturdy lifelines keep you safe and onboard.

A desirable large aft cabin keeps the privacy and segregation between the forward V berth cabin.

The galley is large for a 38 and is set up for the long-distance passage maker with deep fridge/freezer, large oven and stove top, huge stainless sink for washing those big pots and don’t worry about water wastage because she makes her own via a 12v watermaker.

The sail wardrobe is quite extensive with battened main in lazy jacks and new boom bag, furling genoa plus 2 additional headsails and a spinnaker pole.

Australian registered and locally NSW which is a nice bonus.

The engine is a reliable Yanmar shaft driven 4JHE with low hours showing.

A 2018 survey is available.

Her next adventure is in your hands.
