1976 Islander

19 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

One of the great things about a 28 foot boat is most marinas allow at least a 3 foot overhang from the slip length. This means a 28 foot boat like this is the max you can put in a 25 foot slip. Any bigger and you need a 30 foot slip. The difference saves you hundreds per month. Huge interior. I know it’s blasphemy on a sailboat but one of my guilty pleasures is motoring around in this boat. The inboard diesel engine is great. 3 cylinder Universal diesel starts up every time, runs great with plenty of power to get you there. Motoring from Marina Del Rey to Catalina or Channel Islands on a windless day is no problem. The Islander 28 is renowned for its stability and its seaworthiness. A very stable and forgiving coastal cruiser. Very easy to sail. Very roomy interior with lots of beautiful wood. Starboard side couch folds out to a bed for 2. V-berth sleeps 2. Quarter berth sleeps 1. Port side couch sleeps 1. Can sleep up to 6 close friends. 2 couples 2 kids and a dog are no problem. Comes with everything you need to go to Catalina, Whale watching or the Channel islands.

Tons of family fun or a great place to escape from same. Like having a cabin on the beach. Great fun to just spend a weekend in your slip and go nowhere. Treat yourself and your family to the wonder of it all. Give your kids some memories that will last a lifetime and spark up some romance with your significant other. If your single, I’m told that few date requests work as well as “Would you like to go sailing on my boat this weekend?”. The marina at night with the lights reflecting off the water has melted many a heart.

All reasonable offers considered. The outside wood needs to be refinished and the inside could use a good cleaning. If your looking for an incredible classic boat to tinker with but doesn’t need any major work this is the one for you. Sold as is where is.
