1979 Islander tall rig, shoal draft 25,000


$25,000 located at Demopolis Yacht Harbor, Demopolis, Alabama.

We live on and cruise full time on an Islander 32 shoal draft, tall rig.

Items listed as new are just that. Brand new, not used or rebuilt.

I am allowed a link to a private website. Click on the sailboat picture and start with number 55. There you can see what it looked like when we bought it and then work and cruising we did since then until this month.

I have hundreds of photos available but not yet on the internet.

Why??? I have an opportunity to resurrect a Gemini cat. Which will be my last boat to live on forever. If I don't sell the islander, we head for the Bahamas and eastern Carib. this fall.

Over a 3 year period we have lived on and cruised aboard. At the same time we have stripped it to bare glass inside and out. There are 3 recent coats of antifouling paint and new deck and hull and non skid paint.

I have stripped it to the bare glass inside and out. New engine, trans, coupling, shaft, motor mounts, muffler and hoses, cutlass bearing, prop among other things. Engine has 9 hours as of this writing and still 4 years warranty.

Includes fiberglass dinghy and motor.

Because some websites are besiged by "bots" replying to posts with spam messages and links to porn you will have to convince me that you are a real person for me to answer.
