A very wide and comfortable companionway with 3 steps down, sets you into a beautiful warm and welcoming salon with ample windows and ports for great light and air. To port is a "L" shaped galley with a long port settee. To starboard is a fold-away dinette table against the forward bulkhead. Expanding out to serve dinette seating along the starboard salon. Starboard of the companionway is quarter berth with custom nav table built above which can removed. Moving forward from the salon is a hanging locker to port and a head adjacent to starboard. Forward is a very large V-berth with storage below.
The interior was a major reason for the 32 MKII's popularity. Almost every owner comments on the spaciousness, comfort and ample storage throughout. The finish is classic late 1970's dark teak but the workmanship is first rate ! Cane faced lockers above the settees are deceptively large, attractive and practical as they allow the lockers to breath. Between the drawers and lockers your provisions are swallowed up !

Deck and Hull
The hull is solid fiberglass and the deck is plywood cored. The construction is typical of the period with hand-laid hull and polyester resin. the hull-to-deck joint includes an aluminum toe rail that runs nearly the entire length of the deck, an Islander trademark. The ballast is lead. Bulkheads are tabbed to the hull, the floors are stout and use of liners is limited.

Test of time ....
The true measure of a boats construction is how well it holds up over time. the Islander 32 MKII is a well-belt boat. Several MkII's have completed imporessive offshore passages, including a documented circumnavigation, others holding their own on the windy San Francisco Bay.
