The Islander 36 (I36) is a true classic and depending on whose numbers you believe, there were somewhere between 700 and 800 hulls built between 1973 and 1986 making it an extremely successful design.
Alan Gurney’s objective in the design of the I36 was to create a “36-foot yacht that would be a competitive machine but also could cruise a family comfortably.” Since Gurney was also responsible for go fast classics like Windward Passage, Guinevere and Great Britain II, the I36 racing pedigree was guaranteed. These are fast and stiff boats with a 40% ballast to displacement ratio and even 30 years later, they still hold their own on the race course. The I36 will do 8 knots and practically steer herself in 20-30 knot winds without being overpowered, however it can feel a little sluggish in light air.
This boat is in good condition and ready to go, Owner give a good maintenance and leave onboard.
