Pros:
Cons:

The islander 34 is from the old school of sailboat design and building. This McGlasson design is a true blue water boat heavily built, truly bulletproof. With a low aspect sail plan and full keel with a cut-away fore foot (some times referred to as a 3/4 keel) this boat is very stable even in heavy swell. Accommodations are reasonable for 5 people and there is no shortage of cockpit space.

In general the Islander 34 is a forgiving, stable boat with relatively good performance for an older design. The large wetted surface of a modified full keel doesn't give the lift that a fin keel supplies so you give up a little to weather performance but this is more than made up for in stable operation in heavy seas.

In all the Islander 34 is pleasant to sail in all weather conditions.
