Selling my 1973 Islander sailboat! 

The Islander 36 was listed as one of Cruising World's Top 20 Sailboats, and Zac Sunderland just sailed one around the world. Sailing Magazine described the Islander 36 as "well balanced under sail, stiff and surprisingly fast." There is a big owners association and website. 
This is a great boat I use to go to Catalina Island in year around. 
 I have endlessly gone through this boat an have redone many of the systems.   

USCG Documented Vessel - All fees up to date  (NO DMV!) 

All the electrical has been completely fixed.  I used a IBEW low voltage electrician to all the electrical work.  New wire throughout the boat.  It has four deep cycle marine batteries that are about 1 year old now.  The cabin lighting has been changed to LED and the spreader lights are also LED.  This was a lot of money to upgrade.  
There is a VHF Marine radio installed and a HF Marine Radio that needs an antenna(was researching a way to use the rear stay as an antenna (Just haven't figured it out).  There is a Sony stereo connected to four Bose 151 speakers inside.  Two outdoor Bose speakers are connected to a external amplifier that gives out plenty of sound to have a fun time.   
20 inch Flat screen installed on swing mount. 
There is a 6 gallon Raritan water heater that connects to the Yanmar 3 cylinder diesel and can also be used on 120V shore power that heats up nicely in a short time.  
There is an electric head less than 3 months old that dumps into a holding tank (Avalon Harbor Rules).  This system works great and can also be dumped while underway.  
Front "V" birth padding was redone last year and is still virtually new.  
This boat has a gas stove and oven that both work perfectly that are connected to two 3 gallon propane tanks with all electric shut off controls.  In the last year of cooking for many trips I have only used 3 gallons!   
The holding tank is 10 gallons.  The water tanks combined are about 50+- (Never was able to measure them)  The diesel tank holds 11 gallons.   
Foot pump for using the ocean water to rinse items in the sink. 
Shower in the head with hot water plumbed. 
The engine is a '88 Yanmar 3GM30 diesel.  Well maintained, starts every time with no issues at all!   
The boat has a Maxwell windlass, 33 lb Bruce anchor, mast-mounted spinnaker pole, Harken Roller Furling Wheel steering and (auto pilot)Autohelm 4000.  
Any questions please let me know… 

I would be willing to take potential buyers sailing to show them how everything works, but that would be $150 for a trip around the San Pedro Harbor.

If your looking for a great boat that is easy to handle, this is your boat.  
Watch the videos…Me and my girlfriend can sail this in all weather, single handed is no problem either, just watch out for the Great Whites…they get hungry!  
So much to list I can't remember it all!  
There is a survey available that was completed before I bought the boat a little over two years ago.
Please ask questions. 

Thanks for bidding!!!
