Identify a sailboat

While at a marina to visit a friend I notice an interesting boat on the hard. my friend thinks the owner died and the family doesn't know what to do with it.

anyhow, can one of you identify the boat for me? thanks

Re: Identify a sailboat

I don't think the 46 had portlights forward in the hull, in line with the rubrail ?

Re: Identify a sailboat

Irwin 52 is a really close match according to sailboatdata. The displacement at 55,000lbs. is what has me scratching me head. Is that not really high for a 52'boat? The ballast (lead I guess) alone is 16,000lbs. The disp/len ratio of 288 is in the racer category? Huh?

Are these known as solid boats good for the oceans or are they coastal cruisers?

Re: Identify a sailboat

That is an irwin all day long. Agree likely 43 or 46. A 52 has an aft lazerette. So no rear ports. So most likely 46. Ketch nice layout.

Re: Identify a sailboat

Good catch on the rear ports. A 46 then. i'll see what sailboatdata has to say about that.

Re: Identify a sailboat

That’s a lawn ornament. To return it to a usable sailboat would exceed its value.

Re: Identify a sailboat

I think that is an O'day 17. Not positive on that one. I'd plant flowers in it too.
