Starship - Specifications
Islander Yachts - Islander 36
1972 Fiber Glass Sloop
From the Islander 36 Association website:
"The Islander 36 was designed by Alan Gurney to be a fast racing boat with a good IOR rating as well as comfortable to sail and cruise. The boat has proven to be very well-suited to San Francisco Bay conditions. The mast is stepped on the keel with double spreaders and inboard chainplates to provide minimum sheeting angle. The deck plan offers unusually wide walkways which provide added safety and ease of sail handling. The T-shaped cockpit provides an efficient means of sail trimming and allows the helmsman an unimpeded view of the sails and foredeck. The extreme beam in relation to length combined with the deep draft and long waterline gives tremendous room below decks as well as stability and speed. The all teak interior is standard with a roomy galley, unique folding table, settees and chart table. The boat sleeps 6* comfortably. Many features are available to make the boat very comfortable for cruising."
* Modifications to Starship make it such that she sleeps 4 comfortably and 6 in a pinch
With over $100 000 in upgrades since 2005, you will come to understand that Starship is not like any other Islander 36 you will find on the market.
