1979 Islander MK II

6 October, 2011 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

3 short steps lead from the cockpit to a warm, comfortable, homey saloon. Immediately to starboard under the cockpit is a quarter berth that can double as storage. Just forward of the quarter berth is a straight settee that opens to a comfortable double berth. Built into the mirrored rich wood cabinetry is a unique semi-hidden table that folds out for dinner for 2. An additional leaf serves 4. To port is another straight settee that serves as a single berth and would make a perfect sea berth. Aft of the port settee is an L shaped galley next to the companionway.

Just forward of the port settee is beautiful cabinetry serving the owner’s berth including a hanging locker, dresser top and storage locker with the look of fine furniture. A large vee berth is forward. The head, just aft of the vee berth to starboard features the same fine furniture cabinetry.
