This classic 1978 Kong-Halvorsen Island Gypsy 36 is a great example of the early days of Fibreglass boat building. Halvorsen of NSW moved their production to Hong Kong to begin building the Island Gypsy line of cruisers in fibreglass, resulting in exceptionally well-built, solid, sea going launches.
'Island Haze' has long range cruising capability with a 1000L fuel capacity. It makes for a brilliant introduction to extended trips with friends and family. Twin Volvo Penta TAMD60A 235HP propel the vessel to a top speed of 16.5 knots and an economical cruising speed of 10-12 knots. The flybridge is fitted with a Raymarine C120 plotter, GPS and sounder package. She has dual helm stations which make heavy weather cruising comfortable for the skipper. Proving herself as a long range cruiser, she has been spending the last 2 years up in the north-west of WA. Recently slipped, antifouled and surveyed at the Carnarvon Yacht Club where she is now berthed.
There is accommodation for up to 7 guests, the forward V berth has a large double or 2 single bunks, with a double in the starboard cabin. The dinette converts to a large double and the additional saloon lounge works well as an emergency single! A well appointed and spacious galley makes food prep and entertaining a breeze! The parquetry floor and timber work throughout gives the boat such a warm, classic feel.
Island Haze is ready for her new custodians and with a final bit of TLC she will be a true pleasure to spend weeks aboard. I personally have a soft spot for these classic Halvorsens and they have a strong following all around the country.
