Islander 36 Prices

This page has been established as a posting place for those interested in buying or selling an Islander 36 or other boats included in the Association.

We are occasionally asked about Islander prices. Prices vary a lot. There was an '83 or '84 asking $60,000, an '81 was listed for $49,500, though we've heard of hulls needing a lot of work for around $30,000 or even less. One boat that had been purchased after being underwater for a while went for $4,000 and one on the hard in Spain for a year went for $10,000.

Several have had complete make overs for $20,000 and up. So, people are willing to invest a good deal in Islanders. A typical survey replacement value new would be in the neighborhood of $125,000.

A lot depends on the year and the condition of the boat. A smart buyer will insist on a marine survey. If you haven't had one in a while, you might get one and that will help you a lot in knowing the relative condition and value of your boat. Gas vs diesel is not usually a major factor in pricing. The condition of the sails is probably more important than the number -- a boat in top racing condition would generally have a higher price, but there are also probably fewer buyers looking at Islanders as racing boats than cruising boats.

Our ground rules for this page are simple. All parties must provide their name and e-mail address, phone contact is highly encouraged. Sellers must be Association members, describe the boat, it's general condition, and location. We will post the listing, including the date of posting, and remove the listing in 3 months or if the transaction closes.

Hell Bitch - 1978 Islander 36 PERFORMANCE CRUISER

LOA: 36' LWL 30' BEAM: 11'2"
DRAFT: 6'0" DISPLACEMENT: 12,300 lbs. BALLAST: 6,850 lbs.

We purchased Hell Bitch (nee Hushwing) in 1989. Always a Puget Sound based vessel, she has been moored continuously for the past 17 years at the Olympia (Washington) Yacht Club. Upon the insistence of four daughters, she was renamed Hell Bitch after Captain Call's mare in Lonesome Dove.

During the spring and summer, 2004, she was hauled for a hull and rigging makeover: Her original White hull was sanded and repainted Awlgrip 2000 Flag Blue, with Fighting Lady Yellow boot stripes. Her accumulated bottom paint (ten layers) was removed, and three coats of epoxy barrier paint and three coasts of Micron Extra (ablative paint) were applied-the first bottom coat is Red; the two outer coats are Black (when the Red begins to show, the bottom is repainted with Micron Extra). In between, the bottom is cleaned underwater four times annually. Also in 2004, while the boat was on the hard, the original black aluminum mast was un-stepped, sanded, and along with the boom and spinnaker pole, repainted with Emron urethane Black. Her deck and cockpit are White.

  • Hell Bitch sleeps seven (Two in the Forepeak; Two in the Port Settee; One in the Starboard Settee; One in the Pilot Berth Starboard; and One in the Quarter Berth Port) Her Upholstery and Cushions (Herculon) are in very good shape. A Garmin GPS, FM/AM radio CD player, and VHF radio with telephone handset are mounted on or at the navigation cabinet on the port side. Four radio speakers are arranged throughout the cabin.

  • Her interior is original except for a hand cut and inlaid teak floor (1/2" thick true teak strips, sawn from natural teak planks) over the original fiberglass floor. Cabin walls are teak paneling. A unique redesigned hand-fashioned solid teak foldaway dining table was created and installed in 2007. The original oak lavatory sink top in the head was replaced with a laminate top in 2013. The SS sink and faucets are original.

  • The galley SS sink, icebox, range-Kenyon propane three burner stove and oven-drawers, and cabinets are on the starboard side by the cabin entry. Hell Bitch has a pressurized hot/cold water system with a foot pump for fresh water. The galley and lavatory sinks have hot/cold pressurized water, as does the shower in the head. Hot water is off the engine or by shore power. A bulkhead mounted and vented Shipmate kerosene space heater provides heat for the cabin, ample even during winter in the Pacific NW.

  • Electrical shore power is supplied via a 50' 30-amp cord. On-board electrical power is provided through two storage batteries. When in port, the batteries are charged with a Guest 2610 10 amp, 2-bank, 3-stage marine battery charger. Water pressure is provided by a dedicated pump. Propane for the galley range is stored in an aft locker accessible from the cockpit and controlled with a Marinetics LPG Safety Control System with a shut-off switch in the galley. Two H2O tanks (total 45 gal.) store fresh water.

  • An automatic Jabsco bilge pump and a manual "Gusher" (operable from the cockpit) manage the bilge. Waste disposal involves a Raritan marine head and a designed waste disposal system with a holding tank for inland waters and a duck-billed macerator and through-hull disposal outlet for use offshore. Through-hull fittings are double-clamped with shut-off valves. All pumps were replaced in 2007.

  • Raymarine Tridata depth sounder, wind speed, and knotmeter instruments are mounted in a NavPod at the wheel in the cockpit. Hell Bitch has an Autohelm 300 autopilot, which is mounted on the wheel pedestal and stored inside when not in use. A Richie Globe Master Compass (SP-5) also is mounted on the steering pedestal.

  • A Danforth HT 22# anchor with 30' chain and 300' feet Dacron line is stored in the bow anchor locker (it also can be carried on the bow pulpit for cruising access.)

  • The engine is a Yanmar 30GMF diesel (three cylinder 27 hp, freshwater cooling). It has approximately 1240 hours use. The prop is a solid brass two-blade. A separate brass IGORI 15x10RH folding prop is available for racing use. A new SS prop shaft was machined and fitted in 2004, along with a new cutless bearing. Fuel is carried in a 27-gallon stainless steel tank.

  • Sails consist of a North Sails Main (White, new 2009), Gennaker (Blue and White, new 2009) and 135% (recut to 125% and UV shield replaced in 2014) and 110% Jibs, a 3/4 tri-radial Spinnaker by Dewitt (Green and Yellow), and full spinnaker gear. A LZ-Jax system facilitates mainsail raising, dropping, and folding, especially when single-handed sailing.

  • All 12 winches are Lewmar. The mast mounted winches are for jib (#40/2 speed), spinnaker (#10), and main, (#16/2 speed) halyards. The boom has a #8 reefing winch. Primary cockpit winches are self-tailing (#46/2 speed). Secondary winches are #40/2 speed. Four cabin-top winches are cockpit accessible, for furler (#8), boomvang (#8), main sheet (#16/ 2 speed). and topping lift (#10). Hell Bitch has a StreamStay2 two track foil headstay roller furling system and Harken furling accessories for furling from the cockpit.

  • The boat has matching wheel cover, sail cover, line bags, and winch covers. Safety equipment includes fire extinguisher, lifejackets floating cushions, and distress signal kits located in the cabin, and a Lifesling (MOB) Rescue System stored in a hard case mounted to double lifeline pedestals in the cockpit, a horseshoe life buoy and a MOB. A hinged boarding ladder is mounted on the stern pulpit. An emergency tiller is stored in the starboard cockpit locker, along with an extra length of anchor line, boat fenders and other miscellaneous equipment.

Hell Bitch is a fast, dependable, forgiving, and responsive sailboat. She is equipped both for performance and for cruising. Her usual itinerary involves local and regional recreational sailing in the South Puget Sound region, the Tacoma, Seattle (Lakes Union and Washington), San Juan and Gulf Island areas, and destination vistas in British Columbia (e.g., Nanaimo, Desolation Sound, etc.) Sunday, weekend, and overnight outings to local islands are common, and although the boat is fast, she is not often raced.

Califia - 1978 Islander 36

1978 Islander 36 with Slip -- Classic SFO Racing Yacht, Inside and Out

Beautifully kept inside that exudes elegance and spaciousness for special social occasions and comfortable living - classic feel without long­range cruising hardware
Updated to be one of the fastest and most reliable I-­?36s out there, proven again in this years strong winds, with numerous placings and trophies (more recent showings available by googling "Califia Islander 36"), including the class win in the 2012 3-Bridge Fiasco
Outstanding, expert work invested in the last decade for years of fun on the water ahead
Fantastic, very safe, assumable slip in Sausalito Yacht Harbor (views of Mt. Tam), only short distance to bathrooms and parking
There's a very friendly and active Islander 36 Association community with cruises, races, events and maintenance/sailing/racing tips. I-36s as one of the few yacht types have their own class starts as part of the local Yacht Racing Association and other regattas

We named her "Califia" because she is from California and built for California (first being called "Gingerbread", and then "Eye Level" by the well-known San Francisco Mezzetta family which owned her for the longest part). This Islander 36 is ideal for the strong Bay Area conditions, she also has a couple of big genoas and a full spinnaker for lighter winds. Last purchase price was $29,000 in March 2010 before over $20,000 were spent on improvements. We'd love to keep her but have to sell for personal reasons.

Recent Upgrades and Maintenance

Re-powered 2012 with new Volvo Penta D1-­?30F diesel and maintained by certified dealer since, ca. 170 hrs. Included new control panel; transmission; new water and fuel filters, antysphon valve; exhaust hoses, water lift and through-hull fitting; new shift and throttle cables; new shaft; rebuilt stuffing box, new cutless bearing; new feathering MaxProp propeller ($2500) with outstanding forward AND reverse power, out of the way when sailing
New stainless steel fuel tank in Aug '08. Bilge pump replaced Oct '08.
Sails in good shape (3 jibs 110 heavy, 155 medium, 155 light). Main and working jib replaced in '09. New main sail tracking system Aug '09
All new running rigging in May '09. Starboard chainplate strengthened down to hull Aug '10. Rig tuned by Scott Easom June '11
Updated electrical system with numerous outlets, new AC panel, circuit breakers, new inport for outside cabel in anchor locker case, LED lights, battery charging layout, battery charger June '11
New blue pattern upholstery '08. New head May '09
Last haulout Nov '12. Regular zinc maintenance and bottom cleaning.
New sail cover Oct '13

We've raced, sailed and cruised this boat more than 40 days this year alone, which is a far cry from some of the boats for sale which have sat degrading for years. Cosmetically she is clean and the wood is all in good shape with the original interior, which consists of teak paneling with teak cabinetry. The top deck could be painted for looks. All the safety, navigation, cruising and sailing inventory is considered part of the boat and sale, this I-36 is ready to go.

Islander 36's are incredible boats that are very roomy, and place well in today's races while staying solid and comfortable. This I-36 is especially elegant and fast to boot.

Amigos - 1982 Islander 36

"AMIGOS" is an Alan Gurney designed Islander 36 originally commissioned in Southern California in1982. We understand that her first owner sailed her to Hawaii and that she had one intervening owner before she was purchased by a U.S. Navy man then stationed in Hawaii. He used her primarily for day sailing there for a few years and then sailed her to Poulsbo, WA. He sold her to us in April, 2000 in anticipation of his being transferred. We renamed her to reflect the longtime friendship of her 2 owners and used her for occasional cruising in British Columbia and lower Puget Sound until November 2004. We then brought her to the Columbia River in Oregon. Since 2004 we have used her very little: one major cruise up the Columbia River in 2005, one short trip up the Washington coast in 2008, and occasional day and overnight sailing on the Columbia River. She is now docked at Riverplace Marina on the Willamette River in downtown Portland.

We have made many upgrades and improvements over the years, and the boat is an outstanding, lightly-used example of a cruiser/racer classic. Her managing owner is 82 and her other owner is too occupied with other matters to use her. AMIGOS needs new owners who will give her the TLC and use she deserves.

  • White, original fiberglass in very good condition. Old bottom paint removed, a minor stress crack ground out and reglassed, 2 coats Trinidad paint applied, and hull waxed in July, 2011. Hauled, washed and waxed again in March, 2013.
  • Standing rigging--looks very good. We were told it had been replaced in 1998 in Hawaii, in preparation for returning to mainland USA.
  • Running rigging--varies from nearly new to just OK.

  • Pathfinder 4 cyl 50 hp diesel, starts and runs great. Glow plugs replaced in 2007. Freshwater cooling system upgraded, cutlass bearing, strut, driveshaft, PSS dripless shaft seal, shift and throttle controls, motor mounts and miscellaneous upgrade and service items new in 2006.
