Additional Information


The Irwin 46 has a very nice layout with three staterooms. All the way forward there is a large guest stateroom with vee berth, hanging locker, chest of drawers, storage shelving and an en suite head with shower. Coming aft into the salon you find an L shaped settee to port and two chairs to starboard, a teak table in the center with leafs that swing out to either side. Aft to port is a sit down nav station.

The third sleeping area is just aft and open to the nav station and has a door to access the aft head.  This cabin uses upper and lower bunk beds the cushion for the upper bunk having been deleted to convert this to a work and storage area. To starboard and stepping down one level, is a very well planned galley in the walk-through that leads aft to the master stateroom.  The galley has two stainless steel sinks, a 3 burner propane stove and oven, refrigeration, and lots of storage cabinets for food and dinnerware. 

Going through the passageway aft you enter the owner's stateroom with queen size bed, a single settee, many drawers and a large hanging locker and a small vanity. The en-suite head with a separate shower stall is to port.

Access to the engine, is excellent with removable panels on both sides.
