Thats a shame, but maybe there is another one out there somewhere! We live in Madeira Beach and sail any where south of here - there are some wonderful places to visit!
We ended up with a 38 footer due to massively increased cabin space, very glad we did as a the 34's were a great deal smaller...
I would call the broker and ask the question - when they put SOLD on an advert, then generally it means that a contract has been drawn up and agreed upon.

Here is the FB group for you :-
Is this is boat you are looking at?
I did not own a Catalina. when we originally started looking this was the boat were were considering and looked closely at a 34. What swung us to the Irwin? 1. Citation 38 is a good looker. 2. She is VERY roomy with a huge aft cabin and lots of storage space (I mean a LOT!). 3. Sails...

Many thanks for such a detailed response, it is really hard to find any information on these boats. We saw yours on the blog which is still out there from 2012, was useful to see the transom gate folded down as this is big plus for us.
Do you know of any other Citation 38's here in the US...
We are considering purchasing an Irwin 38 Citation and would be very interested to hear general views - negative or positive......
General build quality? Standard of cabin interior fit out? Points to watch etc?
