Two Boat Owner is Motivated. "Bring me an Offer!"
Irish Gift is in impeccable condition and is very completely equipped. She has an exhaustive list of extras and much of it is new or very recent. For starters, she has a hydraulic furling main and headsail, hydraulic primary winches and a bow thruster. She is equipped with a new 7.5 Phasor genset, new Yanmar Turbo engine, dual AC units, and davit system, windlass, dodger and bimini, and complete electronics.
All standing rigging (and much of the running rigging) was completely replaced in 2013.

This very comfortable Guest Stateroom features teak access doors, both forward and aft, one with full length mirror. There is a large offset double berth to starboard, and a single berth to port with storage below the berths. Two overhead opening hatches afford great ventilation and natural light, and there are two Realistic stereo speakers and fans. Storage is provided by a large hanging locker with double doors on the starboard side. There is another hanging locker on the forward end of the single berth on the port side. In addition, there are large storage lockers outboard on the port side (above the single berth) and two large storage shelves and another storage locker outboard above the double berth.

Storage locker space is under and outboard of the seat. The telephone shower hose is long enough to extend through the opening port light and offers a sit-down deck shower.
There is an excellent galley arrangement in walkthrough to starboard. The high fiddles and smoked Plexiglas sliders on cabinets make items easy to find. Complete rebuild of galley and refrigerator/ freezer with new counter top in 2014.

The centerboard is operated by an oversized hydraulic pump with a manual backup. When the board is fully extended, Irish Gift draws approximately 9'6". Not only does this allow her to point a few degrees higher but it also (and more significantly) greatly reduces the amount of leeway that she will make.
