General Details

Solid construction puts her a cut above

The Islander Yachts 32 has a spacious, comfortable cockpit that was a major improvement over the earlier 32s. The pedestal is placed well aft, which opens up the rest of the cockpit, yet the primaries remain within easy reach of the helm. The Islander Yachts 32 was one of the first boats to offer optional mid-boom sheeting with the traveler over the companionway, although many boats still have the main-sheet led aft of the helm. . There are lockers aft, to port and starboard.

The shrouds are mounted inboard, making it easy to navigate the side decks and also improving the sheeting angles. It seems that some boats came from the factory with full double back-stays. The single-spreader spar is keel stepped. Most boats are setup with a single anchor roller forward and an external anchor locker.

Down below
Like its big sister, the Islander 36, the interior was a major reason for the 32 popularity. Almost every owner comments on the spaciousness, comfort and ample storage down below. The finish is classic late 1970's dark teak but the workmanship is first rate and large portlights help brighten things up. The interior arrangement is conventional but half bulkheads aft and a fold-away table in the saloon create a feeling of roominess--the 32 MK II seems like a bigger boat than it really is.

The forward V-berth is a good-sized double with storage below. Next aft is a hanging locker to port with the head opposite. The saloon features offset settees, both capable sea berths, and the table folds onto the main bulkhead. Cane faced lockers above the settees are deceptively large, attractive and practical as they allow the lockers to breath. An L-shaped galley is to port and includes a two- or three-burner stove outboard, a single sink and decent sized icebox/refrigerator. Drawers and lockers swallow up provisions and there is enough counter space for most seagoing cooks.

The electrical panel is tucked away on the aft bulkhead just to port of the companionway and a quarter-berth is to starboard. The only thing missing from the interior is a chart table.
