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
