1979 Islander Yachts 40
- Stock #098908 -
This 1979 Islander Peterson 40 was originally a San Francisco boat first owned and equipped by the Islander Yachts dealer (hence, the name "Dealer's Choice.") She was raced in her first two seasons by Tom Blackaller and Chris Corlett.
This boat is easily balanced, sturdy and sails very well. She has won many races and has a fine pedigree from renowned America's Cup designer Doug Peterson.
This is a true multi-purpose yacht which is a comfortable live aboard, at home on the race course and an excellent leisure weekend or long-range cruiser. The current owners have found many fine anchorages aboard in the Hawaiian Islands.
The current owner refurbished the boat in 1998-99 with the goals of making her as simple as possible to maintain, without extraneous gear, keeping her light and easy to sail and ensuring below deck is both clean and comfortable for living aboard while cruising. This included adding a robust charging system, and low-draw lights, clean and bright below with easily wiped epoxy faired interior with dark mahogany wood interior trim.
All systems were upgraded/modified to be as fast as possible under PHRF without incurring handicap penalty.
Other upgrades include:
-- Dual-Output Balmar 80 Amp Alternator
-- Group 31's AGM Batteries
Also in 1998-99 refurbishments, the keel and rudder were templated and faired, bottom was re-skinned with triaxial glass laid down with osmotic-resistant vinylester resin and the hull was barrier coated and faired to 1/32" tolerance.
This boat also has a three spreader Forespar rig with stiffeners, larger boom and mainsail, traveller and sheet in cockpit for helm and shorthanded control. All lines led after to cockpit. Carbon spinnaker pole.
She has been single-handed around the Hawaiian islands in the past.
The seller and his family have re-located to the mainland recently and can no longer use the boat regularly.
