I just bought a 1978 Islander Freeport
41 here in Honolulu, HI. I upgraded big time from my last boat
(1989 Capetown Boatyards
Lello 34) and am super excited about this new and HUGE project
The new boats name is “pulelo” and has been around the Hawaiian islands the past 20 or so years.
She is a little rough around the edges but I think with some serious elbow
grease and about 20k in upgrades, she can be back to her beautiful self.
I’m looking for anyone with knowledge and expertise on these boats. I know there are only a few of them left out of 34 ever built? So much stuff going on on this boat
it’ll make your head
Eventually looking to outfit her for extended inter-Hawaiian Island travel and then beyond! (Tahiti, line islands, Cook Islands
Any and all help/knowledge would be amazing!!!
Here are her specs and some photos.
She’s a Ketch
LOA- 41’. (More like 47’ with bow sprit)
. (80ish HP)?
Rigged for 7 points of sail.
