yeah man for sure! those islander freeport are definetaly more coastal cruisers and comfier

I crewed on one shortly in baja california and the amount of room and space they had even compared to my islander gurney 36 was impressive
my boat is beamy sort of ior but in cruise mode, slow in very light winds but can take 35knots easy like they do in san francisco, ca

you have a nice boat, and for the caribbean its fine...do a search for islander freeport using google images and youll see a lot cruising
