Islander 32 MK 2 Tall Rig is a nice looking contemporary styled production yacht. It's a fairly stiff boat with a semi balanced rudder for good steering control. Several MK II's have completed impressive offshore passages, including one documented circumnavigation, and many others sail regularly on windy San Francisco Bay. The MK II has a spacious, comfortable cockpit with the pedestal placed well aft. The Islander 32 is spacious and comfortable with ample storage down below. 32 MK II seems like a bigger boat than it really is. The Islander 32 MK II is known for its sailing ability. The 32 MK is nimble, well balanced, fairly fast, able to stand up to a blow and is quite seaworthy.
