Price Reduced! Motivated Seller -- submit an offer!

ONE OWNER Blue Water Cruiser. Lived aboard for 18 years, sailed 5,000 miles. Now in his 80's, the owner is forced to sell this wonderful sailboat that exudes pampering vibes. Someone is going to get very lucky with this one!

The owner was present for the birth of this Islander 44. He watched the fiberglass being molded and made some cabin design changes to provide for a super long vee berth, more V- berth storage and a separate SHOWER!

This Islander 44 was designed by William Lapworth as an ocean racer. Islander built this ketch design for the sailor that wanted to sail this beautiful yacht more comfortably with a smaller crew.

Upgrades were included in the rigging, structure, and fiberglass. Comes with an Avon 310 Dinghy, Evinrude 15 horsepower outboard, Benmar Autopilot and Monitor Vane Steering. Counterpoise Radio Grounding.

The head room is a generous 6'2", with the headliner and insulation materials being one inch thick.

All exposed varnished teak has snap on covers except for the toerail. There's a reason the teak looks so good!

INCLUDED IN THIS SALE: Paff sewing machine! It can be used for sewing sails and covers. Also has a hand drive. A very popular machine with the Cruisers. A used one sells for about $800.

Don't miss out on your opportunity to own this Islander Ketch sailboat that has been polished and shined inside and out throughout her life.

Dinghy included: Avon 310 Inflatable with canvas running cover
