Can anyone help with information regarding a 1979, 36'' Islander Freeport. We are considering one as a sometimes live aboard and crusing boat. What do you think?
Thanks, seaspirited

The Islander Freeport is a nice boat. I like the berth arrangement and general interior layout.

For bluewater sailing, you should consider some sort of "shutter" arrangement to cover the large cabin windows.

We have a 1979 Freeport Islander - Plan B for sale. If you have any particular questions you can email me. We love the boat and is perfect for 2 people. The head is large enough for us to shower together, the drop-down ladder is a joy to be able to get in/out of water, and the 3 easy steps to enter the cabin is a wonderful feature.

We have a Islander 36'. We have enjoyed sailing it mostly along coastal Fl. Easy to handle. Taking sails down is sort of nerve racking but for the most part we have had enjoyment in it. But now need to sell.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
