Tug Tub is a spacious comfortable and safe center cockpit sailboat. She has two berths, two heads, and a large galley. The Irwin 43 is great for weekend trips or long-term cruising. TugTub is set up for cruising and includes everything you could need for a long term trip. TugTub recently returned from 6 years of cruising in Mexico, Central America, through the Panama Canal and then back to California. TugTub’s speed and agility was demonstrated when she won the Newport to Ensenada race in her class. The sellers had prepared the boat for another cruise, but plans have change and she is available and ready to go for her new owners. If you are looking for a safe comfortable cruiser which is ready to go then Tug Tub is a good choice for under that 100K price point.
