A new yacht has prompted the sale of our beloved Irwin 34 Citation ‘Halo.’ Built in 1984 by renowned designer Ted Irwin, whose innovative designs blend luxurious accommodation and easy sail handling in a fast hull. The Irwin philosophy was simply to build a good boat for the money - make her stylish and fast - stable and comfortable.
Originally named Papagayo she has an interesting history, as researched via the Irwin Owners Group… She was sailed on the Gulf and East coast of Florida and used as a ‘live aboard’ until 2005… Then in 2010 sailed short-handed across the Atlantic and sold into new ownership... From 2010 to 2015 a period of topside upgrade works saw the mast and full rigging replaced into an ‘in mast’ main and furling genoa.. A new Yanmar 20hp was installed soon afterwards.
We acquired the yacht in 2021 and lifted her out of the water for works undertaken by professional marine engineers and shipwrights… Schedule Below
