1983 Irwin 65

Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands


ENDLESS SUMMER II was the very first charter layout with four guest cabins aft.  The owner worked directly with Ted Irwin to develop this version.  ESII has been in continuous charter service throughout her life, marina based at Nanny Cay.  She has never ventured beyond St Barths and so has not been exposed to the rigors of deep sea sailing.  Her name has excellent Charter Broker recognition worldwide.

In September 2017 she was damaged while on land in Nanny Cay....she suffered 1 broken mast which was replaced with an un-damaged mast and a small damaged area to her hull as well as a small area on the port rubrail.  Current owner has gotten her fully repaired and in the water and he has moved her around the Virgin Islands testing her.
