 Sailob Accomodations

The Irwin Yacht is known for it's interior layouts and luxurious interiors.  The Mahogany wood that lines the interior is absolutely beautiful.  She has a large v-berth state room in the bow and a large bedroom in the aft of the sailing boat.  There are two restrooms and showers on the yacht.  They are located in the forward and aft bedrooms.  The center of the boat is where the galley and dining area is located.

The Galley is located in the center of the sailboat.  The port side of the boat has a large, heavily insulated, custom ice box that will keep ice for weeks at a time.  She has a gimball mounted three burner stove to cook hot meals with.  The reason sailboats have gimball mounted stoves is because it keeps the surface area of the stove level while the boat is leaned over sailing.  If the boat moves because of waves, the stove top remains constant and you will not spill the food you are preparing.  There is also a sink with hot and cold water and abundant storage to match.
