36' 1984 Islander 36


Last Updated: 2024-03-30

BLAZE is an extraordinary Islander 36.  With nearly 800 boats built this was one of the most successful models from Islander Yachts. Design, Construction & Performance were Alan Gurney's objective in the design of the I36 was to create a '36-foot yacht that would be a competitive machine but also could cruise a family comfortably.'  Since Gurney was also responsible for go fast classics like Windward Passage, Guinevere and Great Britain II, the I36 racing pedigree was guaranteed.  These are fast and stiff boats with a 40% ballast to displacement ratio and even 30 years later, they still hold their own on the race course.  The I36 will do 8 knots and practically steer herself in 20-30 knot winds without being overpowered.
