Zac Sunderland sailed one around the world. His is not shoal draft, but a lot of stuff broke (boom, forestay, bulkhead). Not sure it's built well enough for offshore work.

There's offshore and offshore. Getting a hundred miles out or going to Bermuda is one thing, crossing the Pacific is another.
There have been sailors who contend that shallow draft is an advantage at sea, because you are less likely to get rolled by a sea. The boat is driven downwind rather than tripping over a deep keel.

I don't think the OP is actually referring to the Islander 36, as I believe it was only offered with one fin keel version.

He mentions that it may be a "Morgan", so perhaps he's referring to an OutIsland 36 or a standard Morgan 36.

Ah ok, sorry.
