Ted Irwin designed two 30-foot models:  The Citation and the Competition.  Impromptu is a Citation and she has proven to be fast enough to win in competition.  Offered in a fin or shoal keel with centerboard, Impromtu sports the centerboard which lowers quite deep for food windward performance.  Her spacious interior is lavish for a boat her size.  Moderately designed in a continental motif and handcrafted with teak throughout, she sleeps 5 in comfort ad style.  Her layout is pretty traditional with a forward forepeak double cabin.  The head lies just aft to port and it is completely enclosed for privacy.  The main salon has port and starboard settee berths and a drop leaf table which folds against the main bulkhead when not needed.  There is a teak floor throughout. The stylish wrap-around U-Shaped galley is on the starboard side. Across is the navigation table and just aft of it is a large quarter berth to finish off the sleeping arrangements.  On deck there are two hatches, deck stepped mast and anchor locker forward. Wheel steering controls the inboard spade rudder.  The boat has been sailed on Lake Superior since she was new. The current owner has had her for 5 years and now has moved up into a 38-footer. He remarks that this is a fun boat to sail and with the shoal draft, you can get into most anywhere. Impromtu is a good, solid vessel that needs some cosmetic work, but is ready to sail and is a very affordable way to get into a nice boat with cruising comfort and great sailing characteristics.
