Irish Miss

Irish Miss is a beautiful yacht that has been babied, maintained and extensively upgraded in the last few years.

The 800 HP 3406E Caterpillar Engines let her burn a mere 8 GPH total at 8-knots and still provide an 12-18-knot cruise and 21-knot top speed. The original generators have been replaced. The engines and generators have been serviced professionally on a regular basis and she is ready to cruise. She is a great sea boat with twin keels that fully protect the propellers. She also is stabilized (new in 2021), and the teak decks look great. She also boasts a new top-of-the-line yacht controller to allow remote docking and maneuvering underway.

The three staterooms with three heads make her a great family boat. Her separate crew quarters aft of the engine room with access from the aft deck have been converted to a handy tool room, spare parts storage and workshop, but easily could be reconverted to crew quarters if desired, since there is a fourth head in this area.

The Portuguese bridge and high bulwarks make this a very safe vessel underway. Wide covered side decks, large cleats and oversized hawse pipes make line handling safe and simple. The hard top and full enclosure provide protection from the elements on rough days and will keep the flybridge seating out of the sun and rain. The  tender is a 2014 Boston Whaler 130SS with 4-stroke Mercury outboard and a Bimini top and cover.

Irish Miss has great outdoor spaces for relaxing or entertaining. The bow seating is a favorite spot to watch the  world go by when coastal cruising, and is also a great spot at anchor. The cockpit is a great place for dinner with its built-in bench seat and beautiful teak table with matching director’s chairs. You will find the flybridge is the best  spot in a marina setting, offering privacy with a teak table and seating and a great view. The flybridge features custom indoor-outdoor mesh carpeting.
