General Details




Island Dancer is only one of two Little Harbor 39 Trawlers built. Ted Hood had her commissioned and built at C&L Marine in Taiwan.  Island Dancer is a true rarity in Taiwan built trawlers of this era in that she is AIREX CORED  - not the usual balsa cored or glassed marine ply type construction .

Her very knowledgeable owners have upgraded her and have her ready for her next cruising adventure.

Island Dancer is a perfect couple's boat in that instead of squeezing multiple staterooms into a 39 ft hull Ted Hood had this boat built with a single master stateroom which encompasses the entire forward half of the yacht.  The main salon settee converts to a double berth for the occasional guest. You have to experience the layout in person to appreciate the roomy accommodation this layout offers for a cruising couple.

 Make an appointment today to see this very special trawler.


Enter the boat from the heavily reinforced swim platform and up one step to the covered aft cockpit . Once through the entry door you are in the open and airy main salon . There is an L-shaped settee to port with dining table and a second settee to starboard. Salon upholstery upgraded in 2004. Forward to port is the galley and to starboard is the lower helm . The interior is finished in teak and has parquet teak floors.  Access to the engine room is through 3 floor panels in the main salon. The main salon has storage under the settees and  5 drawers and 1 cabinet. In the galley you will find a 3 burner Princess stove with oven, double stainless sinks and Corian countertops . There is plenty of galley storage with 7 drawers, 4 cabinets and a clever triple pantry inbuilt forward in the galley counter. The boat comes with complete cutlery and serving dishes for 4. There is even a coffee maker and toaster oven included with the boat. To starboard of the galley is the lower helm station . Here you will find a VHF radio, depth sounder, full engine controls, instrumentation and the Benmar Cetec autopilot. Moving forward and down 2 steps you enter the spacious master stateroom and head area. The double berth with custom 2004 Tempurpedic mattress is to port and the nice head with electric toilet and sit down tub/shower is to starboard. Faucets at head vanity upgraded in 2010. Not attempting to squeeze 2 separate staterooms into a 39 foot boat results in a very comfortable oversized master stateroom perfect for a cruising couple. This very roomy master stateroom layout is typically only seen on much larger yachts. The master stateroom has a seating area forward that is surrounded by additional storage. There are 7 cabinets, 12 drawers and 2 hanging lockers in the master stateroom. Plenty of space for all those cruising necessities. Returning to the covered aft cockpit you will find a ladder to the very nice flybridge . In this space is  newly upholstered seating in an L-shaped settee, a captains chair and a crew chair. The flybridge is a great social area when underway or at anchor.  There is a radar arch, bimini and enclosure on 3 sides. The captain has a Raymarine chartplotter, radar, autopilot, vhf and full engine controls on the flybridge.
