island 28

l'm wondering if anyone has any information on this "Island 28"

vancouver.craigslist.org/boa/419730658.html

I'm feeling out the market for a 25'-28' pocket cruiser for coastal crusing in the Pac NW. Any info you might have about this kind of sailboat would be much appreciated.

I think an earlier version of this boat was sold as a Crown 28. Locally built, and I would think on par with a typical Catalina for build and features.

Though this one looks well cared for the price looks a bit high to me.

Thanks Faster

You're right. I emailed the broker and received the following reply - "The boat was built in 1985 by White Hull Yacht in Richmond. She is a custom vessel but the design is like a Crown 28. She is a very well built and a sound boat." I agree that the price is a bit much. What do you think about Crown 28's?

There may be some build quality issues between the two, but which was better is hard to say without a good survey or anecdotal experience.

They are both probably a perfectly decent boat for local cruising with a wary eye on the weather. It would likely come down to a comparison of asking price, condition, upgraded equipment.
