A boat that is well known for its sailing ability and build strength. Numerous Islander 36s have sailed around the world, including Zac Sunderlund. This boat has a new engine, bow thruster, reverse cycle heat and air, just painted and epoxied bottom and is ready to sail. Lots of upgrades.
Lots more info and pictures to come .... call to be the first.
Priced to sell, only because of a change in family plans, after much money, work and thought in fitting out and upgrading. A real opportunity to purchase a great sailing boat, with lots of top end newer equipment, including reverse cycle heat and air conditioning, new engine and bow thruster at a very motivating price.
This boat was in storage inside for several years, before being purchased by the last owner approximately 5 or 6 years ago. He has put much work into upgrading and refitting the boat for their long term cruising plans. Much was done, and the boat is ready to go. The boat has now been in the water and sailed every year until now.
The overall condition of the boat will strike you even before you enter. The hull looks very good, and the bottom is ready to launch. The deck and cockpit are all in very good condition. The T-shaped cockpit is roomy and easy to work. She has wheel steering, with a leather covered wheel, with all newer Garmin electronics mounted at the helm.
As you go below, you will again be pleasantly surprised. Lots of room, and all of the cushions have been recently recovered. It looks and feels like a much newer boat. The first thing that you will notice is that the entryway has easy entry via stairs, instead of a "ladder" like most boats.
Starting forward in the vee berth, you find a very large berth that a filler cushion. In the very bow section, there is access to an anchor locker. Shelves are built in along both sides of the berth. Under the berth on each side, you find 3 drawers and a cupboard with a drop-down front. The starboard side also has a nice hanging locker. Overhead there is a large opening hatch, and with opening ports on both sides, the light and ventilation make this a very comfortable space.
Next aft you find the very spacious head to port. Manual head with holding tank, sink with hot and cold pressure water, a sump for a shower (not currently installed), and lots of storage. There is an opening port, and a mirror.
Across from the head is much more storage, with 2 large cabinets with louvered teak doors for ventilation of the contents. Another opening port is above the cabinetry. The digital control for the heat and AC is also located there.
Moving aft, you are now in the salon. The salon features 2 settees, one on each side of the salon. The starboard settee is designed with a backrest that lifts, to form good sized "bunk beds" for guests. The port side makes a comfortable single berth. The table is unique. It folds in half (back on itself), and then slides sidewards into the cabinetry. When the table is extended, it is very large and great for entertaining. The port side of the salon (behind the settee) also have storage cabinets along the entire length with slotted teak doors for ventilation.
To port and at the aft end of the port settee, you find the nav station. Here is the Standard Horizon newer VHF radio, lots of storage and the stereo. Behind the nav station is a comfortable quarter berth. The quarterberth also has an access panel to the rear engine compartment to allow more access.
Across from the nav, to starboard of the companionway, is the L-shaped galley. Wrapping around from the companionway, first there is a deep S.S. sink with hot and cold pressure water. Next in the corner is the large icebox with refrigeration. A microwave is also mounted deep in the cubbyhole, with more storage next to it. Turning forward along the starboard side, is lots of counterspace including the space where the stove used to be. Storage is behind the whole space, and under as well.
The companionway itself give easy access to the new engine. The top step lifts up for those quick checks, and the middle to steps lift off for more access to the front of the engine and all 3 batteries. The side of the engine compartment is also accessible from the side of the quarterberth with a removeable panel. All of the electrical controls and breakers are installed in the port side of the companionway stairway.
