Vales Valeo sale pictures


If you are an interested buyer you can request the marine survey we had done as she was prepared for the ocean crossing. Auction Marine has this information and can provide it.
The cockpit is the main room we spent our time in during our journey. There are many photos of gauges, helm, stepdown transformer, hard auto glass windshield, hard top (is made from “Hard-to-Top” which allows light in during the day ), winches, lines run to cockpit enclosure with both UV screens and clear plastic. Photos of these on sides and rear are provided. Cushions fold up to allow in and out access without stepping on them.

Additional spare parts are very extensive, and much of this is also included in the survey. The list that follows is just some of what comes to mind: Pumps (bilge, water, engine, macerator, etc.), propellers, gaskets, impellers, belts, filters, hoses, fuses, rolls of wire, propane tanks (4), lines, blocks, anchor chain, anchor rode, radios, gps, harnesses, life jackets, and safety gear everywhere….

New to the boat in the last 6 months: new step down transformer for AU to USA power, new Magnum Charger inverter/charger, Force 10 stove/oven, and new davits.

She is ready to go back to Whitsunday, down to Sydney or out on another adventure with only more fuel, topping off water, and adding food. She will be for sale in AU only a short time longer or she will be shipped back to the USA. If you want this wonderful cruising liveaboard we are interested in selling her here in AU, and we have paid the AU GST importation fees to accomplish this. Marine Auctions is ready to answer any questions and help. Their number and contact info is in many of the photos above.

We have only one request — that the buying party give us first right of refusal to buy her back after when they wish to sell her. Thank you for your interest.

  1. hello,
    I am in the process of researching a sailboat for extended cruising with my family, my wife two daughters age 7 and 10
    I have stumbled across a few of Irwin 52s and they look like they would be a great boat for cruising, however looking at the different forums it seems a lot of people have bad things to say about them, but I take that with a grain of salt. after all of the time you guys have been cruising what is your opinion of the boat and is there anything particular that I need to look for

    thank you for any input
