1977 Islander 32 MK II Cruiser Sailboat in Moss Landing, California

Stock #242217

This Bob Perry designed 1977 Islander 32 MKII has been systematically gone through to prepare to cruise down the Pacific Coast and over to Hawaii. Unfortunately, in March 2020, the lockdowns hit and the borders closed.

Now it's time for the seller to move on to other projects, with the hope that someone will make good use of the many hours of work it takes to bring an old boat up to cruising condition.

The seller was drawn to the Islander 32 for its sturdy design, good sailing characteristics, and a cabin that is both spacious and cozy. The keel-stepped mast, accessible chainplates, and encapsulated lead keel will keep the mast up and the water out with minimal failure points. The self-tailing winches, fully battened mainsail and fin keel serve well for sailing in and out of anchorages. The cabin woodwork is of a level of craftsmanship not found today in boats of this class.

Over the years the seller has worked through and serviced every major system on this boat. As an ocean passage was the end goal, the most critical parts have been either inspected or replaced. When in doubt, replaced. The goal was to build a simple, robust, and reliable cruising boat. She doesn't have all the latest electronics, and she is a little rough around the edges, but she will keep you safe and well in an unforgiving ocean.

Sailing Magazine Review of the Islander 32 MKII by John Kretshmer: https://sailingmagazine.net/article-permalink-536.html

Also featured in Gregg Nestor's Twenty Affordable Sailboats to Take You Anywhere: https://www.google.com/books/edition/Twenty_Affordable_Sailboats_to_Take_You/vEcPAXdyEecC?hl=en&gbpv=0

Sail Inventory:
* Rolly Tasker fully battened mainsail with three reefs. Inspected and restitched in early 2020. Fair condition
* "Lapper" headsail slightly overlaps the mast and is suitable for most conditions. Inspected and restitched in early 2020. One reef. Fair condition
* Laminate genoa is at least a 150 and a great multi-purpose light air sail. Fair condition
* Storm jib is bright orange with a high clew, new in 2020. Excellent condition

Most running rigging has been replaced in the last four years. Chainplates and all standing rigging were replaced in 2017. The Self-tailing two-speed Barient-27 winches have been rebuilt regularly. Stowable Dyneema Solent stay allows the storm jib to be stored hanked on, and lashed to the deck, ready to be brought forward and tensioned with a Highfield lever. Lines for three reefs in the mainsail are led forward to cleats on both sides of the boom. Reefing is performed at the mast on the windward side

The Mechanical Propulsion is a 2001 Yanmar 3GM30F, regularly serviced, with a three-blade propeller inspected and balanced in 2017.

An Edson wheel drives the spade rudder via a chain and cable system beneath decks. Both chain and cable were replaced in 2019. There is a Raymarine EV-100 autohelm that was installed in early 2020. Hydrovane windvane maintains a point of sail with no power draw. It also functions as an emergency rudder. Spare parts and spare vane fabric is included. This was new in 2020 at a cost of approx. $6,000.

There is a Signet depth sounder that is old but functional, a Standard Horizon GX2200 VHF radio which also functions as an AIS receiver, sounding an alarm if an AIS-broadcasting vessel is on a collision course, and a JRC Radar 1000 that is functional but has limited range, likely due to a worn magnetron.

There is a 50-gallon freshwater tank with a pressure water system and foot pump backup. The galley includes a two-burner nonpressurized Origo alcohol stove and a Dometic fridge.

The head is a simple composting toilet installed in the enclosed head. I found this much more reliable, less smell, and more convenient than a flush toilet. The holding tank and hoses are still installed, making it easy to switch back to a flush toilet if you choose.

The aft quarter berth provides an excellent sea berth, in close proximity to the radio and companionway. The forward Vee berth sleeps two comfortably or provides ample storage. The starboard settee folds out to a double bed, and the table folds away into the forward bulkhead.

The primary battery bank is two Trojan T105 deep cycle batteries, 225AH. Replaced in 2017. The backup battery bank is one older marine battery. The two 50w semi-flexible solar panels are mounted on the dodger, with a Victron MPPT charge controller. All new in 2017. All cabin and navigation lights are LED.

The dodger was replaced in 2019, with custom mount points for solar panels. There are two large cockpit lockers and a cockpit table that folds out from the steering pedestal. The bottom companionway washboard was sealed in place to prevent water ingress.

There is a Spade S80 33lb main anchor (2018), a Fortress FX-23 storm anchor (2018), a small steel Danforth-type kedge, and a 180ft 5/16 G43 chain, spliced to 300ft of 3/4in Tenex polyester (2019). The Kedge rode made up of ~50ft 1/4in the chain, ~200ft three-strand nylon. The 30ft nylon snubber is spliced to a few feet of in-chain on the inboard end, providing elasticity without any chafe points.

The tender is a Walker Bay 8 rigid plastic dinghy and is lightweight, virtually indestructible, and fits perfectly on the foredeck. The Avon rollup dinghy has a hard plastic floor and prevents one-half of a couple from becoming "stranded" when the other heads to shore. It's powered by a * Honda BF 2.3HP outboard.

There is an electric bilge pump with a float trigger, a manual bilge pump operable from the cockpit, and a Revere Survival Coastal Commander 2.0 Valise life raft (2020).

Information On Condition

The seller reports this vessel is in good working condition.

Physical copies of most maintenance receipts have been kept with the boat. I also kept a spreadsheet of maintenance work and improvements as they were completed.

The fuel tank is cleaned and inspection ports were added in early 2020. Over the years oil, filters, and belts were changed regularly. Raw water pump, fuel lift pump, and exhaust hose were replaced. Pressure gauge was added to primary diesel filter.
