Islander Yachts was an early offshoot of Columbia Yachts. It began (in the mid 1950's) with boat builder Joseph McGlasson, who designed, built and successfully marketed a 24 foot wooden sailboat, the Islander.  By 1961, McGlasson had been building a fiberglass version that was so popular that he couldn't build them fast enough and approached a company called Glas Laminates for help. Glas Laminates changed its name to Columbia Sailboats and introduced the Sparkman & Stephens-designed COLUMBIA 29. By 1965 the company started to use the name Islander Yachts, with a new logo.

The Islander 36 is a sturdy, seakindly, and even competitive boat to sail.  The Islander 36 (I36) is a true classic and depending on whose numbers you believe, there were somewhere between 700 and 800 hulls built between 1973 and 1986 making it an extremely successful design.  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.
