1963 Islander 32 for sale
, project boat, mostly complete
Reluctantly I'm putting my Islander 32 up for sale
. This has been a restoration
project for many years but our jobs are moving us well inland so the boat has to go. The short story is every surface inside and out has been redone, every hatch
, port, and opening has been restored or is new (with the exception of the companionway), every system is brand new and installed to a high standard. The boat is in good cosmetic shape and is comfortable. The major things left to finish are the rig and the motor
. There is a brand new, just finished wooden mast
built for the boat. The mast
is complete, it just needs all the hardware
installed and some varnishing. The mast was built to the standard of the original mast which lasted forty years but with epoxy
resin and slightly larger scantlings to reflect the use of cypress over douglas fir for the wood.
There is no motor
installed but its ready for an inboard. I have a complete electric
drive system built for the boat that could go with it and drop right in. You could also put an outboard
on a bracket.
There are two large self-tailing winches for the headsail, two mid-sized non-self tailers, and a couple of bronze Winchard type winches for the mast.
There is just too much that has been done and too much equipment
to list. All the really dirty, nasty, and tedious work has been done, mostly its just installation
of things now. I really wish I could finish her off and go sailing this summer but we've got to move too far to take her with us.

transport company lined up to move the boat wherever you want it at a good rate. First reasonable offer gets the boat.

there is, or if you need specific pictures of things. The boat can be seen anytime in Valdosta Georgia
