In my case the plaque means ..Gourmet cruiser...32' in length & hull number 20.

Haven't got my builder's plaque handy. It's on the boat and the boat is surrounded by 6' high snow banks. But I think it says something like IG32 146, the 146 being the 146th IG32 built.

Does anyone know what this means? My Island Gypsy was built 1982 but I don't know what the 32-14 signifies.
Thanks,
Rick

So does this mean this was the 14th Island Gypsy made in the 32 foot size forever or just that year?
Thanks

From memory, my plate says IG36-39. "IG36" is the boat model, "39" is the hull number. If that does not resolve it, best post a pic of the plate.

For all time, not the year. Note the year is not on the plate. Did the 2 original bound books about the boat come with it?

The IG fellows should be able to help you with that. Mine is a Chung Hwa CHB, not an IG - wish it was, it would be worth more. Sorry, should have said "have helped you with that". I agree with what they said thought - 32 feet model, and hull number 14.

Wow, thanks for the information. This means mine was only the 14th 32 foot IG ever made. I wonder where I can find out how many were made in total.

Thanks all of the information
We took her out today for a couple of hours here in FL where it actually warmed to about 70 for a change. We love this boat and I am slowly getting more comfortable docking, leaving, maneuvering a single screw 32 foot boat. It's taking some getting used to but I am more confident now.

This coming week I have hired a captain to help me get familiar with the engine room, (VERY SMALL- can't imagine twins in my engine room) and always will learn maintenance rituals, etc.
I'm an old salesman and not an old sailor, so despite having many IOs in the 20-26' range, the trawler is one big sail and 16,000 pounds of boat with only one engine. All that said, it's coming along just fine.
Ya gotta love a trawler, right?
Rick

Try asking Mark Halvorsen, at Halvorsen Boat Sales.
Failing that, PM Codger2, see if he knows or will divulge an email address for Harvey Halvorsen, he designed them.

Mark Halvorsen was kind enough to write me back via email and told me there were only 9 32 foot sedans built in 1982 and only 3 shipped to America. I'm guessing I have one of the few left in this part of the world from that year.
He sure knew how to build a fine boat that could withstand the wrath of time!

Glad to hear that. Mark sold me new IG flag badges couple of years back, mine were toast, he obviously has access to old records.
I looked at a 32 years ago, but the twin 80hp Lehmans were 2 raw water cooled (NO heat exchanger), so I passed. The 32 has great space for length.

We still marvel at that. Feels like a big little boat.
