1972 Vintage Islander 37 MS

Hello All,

Considering a purchase of an 1972 Islander 37 Motorsailor. Very good condition.

Can anyone tell me more about these boats.

Info on the Web is scarce.

Links, photos, articles, personal experiences would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Maisso

It always kinda makes me giggle when the first link in a google search is right back to the thread that I'm trying to expand on in the first place.

Have A very good look at the mast step.Make sure there is no steel somewhere under it.Make absolutely sure there is no rusted steel plate under the mast.Also look for pitted corrosion on the mast under the mast boot and passing through the deck.If the mast is deck stepped,still look under the compression post.
Hull will probably have blisters.
