2009 Integrity 346 ES

If you want a new boat built on the Island Gypsy mold, take a serious look at the "Integrity" 346 ES. Just purchased mine & I love this little boat. Spacious engine room, cavernous storage and just a great "couples" trawler.

Could you post a pic? There was a 35 with FB sold here based on Halvorsen moulds, it might have sold elsewhere as a 346ES.
There are a few 426ES Integrity boats around. Instantly recognizable as IG40 hulls, extended by moulding the swimstep as part of the hull.

The same boat was sold here as an Integrity 350. See: https://www.boatsales.com.au/boats/i...ridge-cruiser/
The Halvorsen lineage is apparent. But did they successfully reproduce the osmosis?

I think Jiang Hua "acquired" the IG moulds. If I outlaid the $139USD + shipping for Mark Halvorsen`s book there might be more information.
Integrity normally installs singles unlike IG. Though the 426ES has twins, and I once only saw a 36ft 2006 or thereabouts boat sold with twins. It really resembled an IG36, updated, I think it had the "ES" descriptor.
So jgreene69,you should have a good handling hull courtesy of Harvey Halvorsen`s design work.Later boats seem to have more design input from Jiang Hua, to what effect I do not know.
Sagdito, what is your hull number? My 1981 boat is no.39.

I realise this thread is more than two years old, but just have to say I saw this boat in the flesh recently in Tasmania and the only way to describe her is wow!
She is a real credit to her owners, well done indeed.

Which Model did you see?
I've recently seen an Integrity 346ES with twin Yanmars for sale In North Carolina. But in sad shape.

Apparently yes is the answer Bruce, according to various boat repair locations around Pittwater.

Osmosis was specifically an aftermarket option for IG's. It was automatically added, at no extra cost, once the vessel was launched.

The theory was that it provided added buoyancy. My boat is extremely buoyant!

Osmosis was not optional with IGs.I`ve heard of "go fast" car stripes being "a delete option" but that wasn`t available either.
