Islander 36 Association
Buy / Sell Page
|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.
To post a listing email Commodore Rick Van Mell.
I'm looking for a clean, well equipped Islander 36 for a first time buyer, not sailor, buyer on the West coast. He is willing to ship for the right boat.
Thanks in advance. Please feel free to call with questions.
Hell Bitch - 1978 Islander 36 PERFORMANCE CRUISER|
HELL BITCH (nee, HUSHWING, nee, DREAMBOAT ANNIE)
AFT COCKPIT SLOOP W/WHEEL
LOA: 36' LWL 30' BEAM: 11'2"
DRAFT: 6'0" DISPLACEMENT: 12,300 lbs. BALLAST: 6,850 lbs.
DESIGNER: ALAN GURNEY BUILDER: ISLANDER YACHTS, COSTA MESA CA.
BUILT 1978. HULL: FIBERGLASS
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.

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

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.
