32 foot Islander

I'm currently looking to buy a 1975 32ft Islander. Does anyone out there own one, if so, what do you think of it for offshore crusing. I looked at the boat reviews but there is only a 1977 islander. I'm trying to get more info on the design before I pay to get it surveyed.

Any help would be great.
Harry

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
Not sure if this review at Sailing is the boat you are looking at, it does give some good info on the 32MKII.

You may also wish to try the puget sound islander owners assoc. There is a link in the islander area on the main page of this forum. Possibly in a title of NW roundezvous or equal. If not, let me know via PM or Email, and I can get you in touch with the folks that run the site, both are on speed dial on phone for other reasons.

Good luck,
Marty

Here's one from Yachtworld

Looks to be a typical fin keel sloop from its era, without the IOR influences that shaped other boats in the '70s. The rudder looks a bit smallish. Pretty boat, but not the Perry design of later years.

Lapworth designed a lot of decent boats.. he's listed as the designer. This is the only I32 of that vintage that showed on the search.. This boat probably would not be high on a general list of good offshore voyagers...
