Designed by Robert Finch, this design was introduced in 1979 and production ran through 1985. It replaced an earlier popular Islander 30 design, built by Islander Yachts of Irvine CA. This design has a reputation of having good sailing characteristics, excellent livability and accommodations below for her size range. Construction techniques were consider good as is her structural soundness in a reasonably priced vessel. This boat is in good condition and well cared for. Her interior is in particularly nice condition ($3,000 for recent new upholstery) and the owner has regularly taken care of any issues that may have come up. She shows well. The newly rebuilt engine starts and runs well. The owner purchased the boat on Lake Michigan in 2005 and sailed her to Bayfield where he now uses it more as a cabin than taking it out sailing and can’t justify holding on to it anymore. The sails are in good condition – the main recut and maintains a good shape and the roller furling genoa also has a good sail shape. Below she sleeps 5 sailors in berths over 6‘ long (double forepeak, two settees and a quarter berth) and in a cabin that has 6‘+ headroom. A table folds against the bulkhead when not in use. There is abundant rich interior teak and the cushions are fairly new and in excellent condition.
