An ode to Waterdancer, and the wonderful moments with her
For all the details, please visit
After 10 years, we have to say goodbye to Waterdancer, our 1990 Irwin 43 CC
S/V Waterdancer has been our life, our home for 10 years.
She has served us reliably from the first day we bought her and never let us down.
Her sea punching power with her powerful sails, and if necessary with the 66HP Turbo Yanmar has ensured that we always reached our destination.
She accommodates 9 sleeping berths and is a very comfortable sailor.
She is berthed in Winthrop, MA
