42-Foot Irwin Ketch A Competent, Comfortable Liveaboard Cruiser By Phyllis Atha

The Wyvern, a 1977 42-foot Irwin ketch, has been our only home for eight years and has proven to be a competent and comfortable liveaboard cruiser. We have spent most winters in the Bahamas and most summers in southwest Florida where the shallow draft of 4.5 feet has been an advantage. The shallow draft has allowed us to explore islands and anchorages in shoal areas and sneak into protected bays where deeper-draft vessels can’t maneuver.
