1981 Irwin Citation located in Oregon for sale

34.25' Irwin Citation


Shoal Draft Fin Keel, with 6 feet of headroom throughout, wide 11.3' beam and a respectable 34' length that is perfect for a couple, yet easy to single hand. 7 knots easy, Fast cruising sailboat, never raced, owned by a marine mechanic, previous owners loved this boat and put heart and soul into it.

Many brand new items and maintenance, $20,000 spent in 2018, on a boat that was already in amazing condition. Receipts and logs kept. I bought this boat in New Brunswick, sailed up around Nova Scotia, along the US coast mostly outside, to dry Tortuga's, Havana Cuba, then to Mexico- entirely single handed, 3,000NM day and night, 24-72 hour hops easily.

Never did I feel this boat was incapable of getting me home, and she performed flawless in all weather, on all tacks. Single line reefs easy and safe to do solo, tethered into jacklines.

Fireplace kept me warm sailing with Winter snow in Maine, to Caribbean weather off the keys, the motor started first push and continued Everytime when needed. Sailing however, is where this boat shines. Fast, turns on a dime, easy to handle, and rides the waves instead of crashing through them. I have allergies, so this boat was entirely redone inside and kept spotless.
