Islander 32 tall rig, 1979

  • Cruise ready, turnkey, totally rebuilt.

    It is presently in tie down storage in Charlotte Harbor, Florida. I plan to relaunch in March and start cruising back to Alabama before hurricane season.

    To begin with, she has a new engine. trans, coupling, shaft and prop, gauge panel and wiring harness, muffler and hoses. At the moment less than 400 hours. Consumption is between 1/4 and 1/3 gal per hour at 5 to 6 knots. 32 gallon orig fuel tank.

    We are offering her for sale because of age and health. Im 74 and have had several surgeries lately and 1 heart attack. We plan to downsize to a trailerable houseboat and a small (20') motorhome to tow it. If i do not sell it, i will keep it, go backup the tenntom to north Alabama and live my days there.

    Recently reregistered in fl. As an antique boat until may 2020.
