'Allorshas', an Irwin 40 MKII Citation for Sale

by Lionel
(Boston, Massachusetts USA)



'Allorshas', my 1981 Irwin 40 MKII Citation combines comfort with speed. Generous use of teak is made throughout the spacious white interior, from the bureau fiddle fronts to the rich ceiling panels.

She draws 4'3" with the centerboard up and 7'0" when down. With the genoa furled to 120% and the centerboard down, she will point better into the wind than most modern yachts and will not roll when sailing downwind with the centerboard up. And the centerboard allows easy access to shallow waters and docking at marinas subjected to low tides. 'Allorshas' is the perfect boat to cruise the Bermudas or Key West!
