I want to say that I have no interest in owning an Island Pilot. I own a 7 knot Pilrgim 40 and am perfectly satisfied. I had actually never heard of one until a neighbor of mine expressed interest in one. It is marketed as a…… are you ready for this…..a “Crossover Trawler”. I looked at it and it looks like a hybrid sport fish. I am not sure where the trawler part comes in, it is sure not in the 28 knot top speed. I am doing research for my neighbor and just wonder if the group has seen one or know the reputation of the builder and drive systems.
