For those who would like "too much information".

The Irwin 52 with its generous fuel and water tankage has always been noted for its comfortable cruising characteristics. These wonderful yachts lend themselves perfectly to family cruising, charter operation, or spacious luxurious accommodations for just a cruising couple. With her centerboard down, drawing 13 feet she goes to weather well and with the centerboard up her 5-1/2 ft. draft allows her to anchor in shoal areas normally not accessible to boats of this size.

Jalapeρo differs from other Irwin 52's in the custom-built fiberglass "hard top" cockpit enclosure.  It is an integral part of the yacht built by the factory, and not an "add-on". The cockpit can be opened and closed with rollup curtains for complete protection in less than one minute to create a pilothouse.  She is set up for two people to sail with Harken roller furling on jib and staysail and lazy jack stack packs on mainsail and mizzen.  She includes all the amenities of a luxurious second home with great sailing or motoring characteristics.

The Irwin 52 is the most successful and popular cruising yacht of her size.  Each cabin has a separate head with lockers and drawers.  A large V-berth comprises the forward guest stateroom.  On the port side is a second guest stateroom with a double sized berth.  The spacious salon offers an L-shaped settee on the port side and 6-1/2 foot settee on starboard with television, stereo, CD player, VCR, and bar cabinet.  The salon settees can convert to two single sleeping bunks.  To starboard is the large galley with a double top-loading refrigerator and separate large freezer, microwave/convection oven, and a Force 10 3-burner stove w/oven.  Aft is the Captain/crew stateroom with in-suite head and shower.  The port side fourth quarter bunk cabin has been converted to workshop/utility room.  Forward of this cabin is the navigation station on port side of main salon.
