Islander 29

I recently got a 1966 Islander 29. I am very impressed with this boat, it is very well built, with no problems at all with the fiberglass after all these years. It handles weather very well, with a full keel. The rudder is mounted on the keel and is well protected. It has a Yanmar diesel (not original). Reverse is odd, it will only go to port in reverse, no matter what the tiller position (strong prop walk).
The interior layout is very good, the boat was built with a clear interior, everything is built in with wood, unlike the fixed fiberglass interiors that are now popular. It has a center aisle, the galley is on the starboard side, a combination berth and dining table on the port. There is lots of storage space, much of it is pull out drawers (wood). Everything is designed for cruising and for heavy weather. Instead of weatherboards for entrance to below, there are twin doors, much nicer and convenient. A real classic!
