1967 Irwin 27'

Sabre ex: 28 MK 1 , ex: Albin Vega 27' Falmouth, ME
I may be coming into one of these but was hoping to learn a little bit more about the craft prior to taking ownership. Very little information out there on this particular model and few parts and accessories available as well. I do know that the CB is toast and will need to either be removed or rebuilt. Spartan below deck but solid hull, no rot or delamination which I was shocked by.
Anyway, any information that might be imparted (praise or caution) would be greatly appreciated. I've owned a Catalina 34', Sabre 28 mk1 and an Albin Vega 27'...I vowed to never own another boat again....

Here we go :)
Thanks so much

Irwin, is a brand of production boats much like Catalina and Hunter were in those years. The strength range of fiberglass was not known at the time so the hulls were overbuilt.

I had an Irwin 23. I had long since sold it but I learned to sail on it and the hull was indestructible.
