1968 ISLANDER 30

1968 ISLANDER 30
Cutaway full keel masthead cruising sloop. Very heavily built and seaworthy boat in sound condition. The ISLANDER 30 is the raised deck version of the ISLANDER 29 designed by J.H. McGlasson, and built by Wayfarer Yacht Corp. / Islander Yachts (USA)
LOA: 29' 7"
LWL: 23' 4"
Beam: 8' 10"
Draft: 3' 8"
Displacement: 8400 lbs. (dock-side displacement)
Sail area: 355.25 sq. ft.
SA/Disp: 13.80
Engine: Universal Atomic 4, 1 season since rebuilt, new batteries (2) installed 4/25/09
Sails: 2 main sails; rolerfurling jib, 3 hank-on genoas(120% to 140% I think, they're all large), 1 storm jib - there is a newly installed second fore-stay that the hank-on genoas and storm jib can hank to, good for wing-on-wing running with the rolerfurling jib and a genoa set.
Fuel: 12 gal., tank replaced when engine was rebuilt.
Water: 20 gal, approx., hand-pump galley sink
Electronics: 2 depth-sounders, 1 video depth-sounder with speed through water and water temp., 1 flasher sounder; VHF, loran C, Autohelm 1000 autopilot
Ground tackle: main anchor, 20lb plow with 300' of 7/8" 3 strand nylon and 20' of chain; lunch hook, "fisherman" type folding anchor with 100' of 1/2" 3 strand nylon and 10' of chain.
Dingy & safety equipment: inflatable dingy, donut style, 8'x4' approx. with oars and inflatable seats, Avon self-inflating life raft; man-overboard pole; Type IV Horseshoe Buoy, safety harness, 3 PFDs (life jackets), all required safety equipment.
Sleeps 5; 2 in the forward V berth, 1 in each quarter berth, 1 on the salon table seating. The forward V birth is very roomy due to the raised deck design, comfortable with 2 adults and a child with the center coushion installed. The manufacturer said she sleeps 6 but the salon table is not original and does not make into a double berth, so only one person fits there, and it is narrow. The cushions to make the salon table into a double berth are all there and I was going to change this--until I spent a weekend on her with four adults and two children.
This is a very seaworthy boat in sound condition. I sail her in the bay and along the coast most weekends and holidays. I generally sail her singlehanded and she is very good for solo cruising - with rolerfurling jib, mast steps and the autopilot additions for this purpose. 1960's Islanders are known for being very heavily built, skookum and seaworthy boats, but not known for speed - however, I have been very pleasantly surprised at her abilities. She often does 8.5 kts. under sail in a moderate breeze, and the speed (through the water) indicator has shown almost 10 kts at times. Under power she does 6 kts. (through the water) at 1600 rpm. I hate to sell her but I was offered an Islander 32 which I couldn't refuse, so one of them must go. She is not a "yacht", but is an extremely heavily built, well founded, and seaworthy boat which I would feel most confident in on extended ocean passages. Bottom cleaned 4/23/09. Asking price $14,850 OBO. Presently berthed at Vallejo Marina
