This boat we check out is an Irwin 52, a very luxurious sailing yacht in it’s heyday, and some still are kept in amazing condition. One of these boats in good shape typically sells for $200,000 to $300,000. This one, however is a gutted wreck. Realistically it could take 10 years and $500,000 to bring this boat back to it’s former glory. Is it worth it? Probably not.
We came back to this boat after 1.5 years partly due to the amount of people who watched and were interested in the original Irwin video, vlog #31, as well as our own curiosity, We thought it would be interesting to see how our opinions of this boat changed over the last 1.5 years.
