With a large aft master stateroom, spacious forward cabin, two heads and a large galley. There is plenty of room for living aboard.

The Hirsch group was a charter organization mainly out of the Virgin Islands. They ordered boats to their specifications for the charter trade both from Irwin and Gulfstar. The boats were production quality and designed for coastal and caribe cruising much like the Moorings/Beneteaus are today. These are fine live aboard cruising boats that sail decently, have good tankage, and excellent space They are built from the same hull molds that supported the non-hirsch versions of the brand but often have different tankage and accommodation arrangements.
The engine was upgraded in 2012 with a powerful Yanmar 3JH4. Yanmar Marine's 3JH4 engine is a compact, naturally aspirated, environmentally-friendly marine diesel engine boasting both inboard and sail drive optional transmission packages. Rated a 40 hp @ 3000 rpm, the 3JH4 builds 25% more torque with only a 9% increase in its displacement. Fitted with a new intake silencer design, plus the low-vibration TNV platform and lower operating rpm, this latest offering from Yanmar is a full 5 dB quieter than previous models. Naturally, it runs cleaner and produces less smoke. Suffice to say it complies with EPA Tier 2 regulations.
