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.

If you know Islanders, then you know how beautifully they sail and how comfortably they cruise. Wind Lock is one the cleanest, prettiest Islanders we've seen in a long time. This particular design was introduced in 1970 as a competitive racer/cruiser off-shore design, and remained in production until around 1986, with about 620 hulls built.

Up until 2002, Wind Lock was in fresh water, in Lake Michigan, and since coming to grace San Francisco Bay, she boasts an expoy bottom job by KKMI, wind generator, new bottom and mast paint in April of 2011, new main and jib halyards, new running lights, dodger new in 2010, new custom Vberth cushions, new bilge pump and many other thoughtful upgrades. Includes a 9'2" Achilles dinghy with newly serviced outboard.
