1982 32' IG Sedan

I have now had our 1982 34 foot Island Gypsy Sedan for about four months. WE LOVE HER! Great on fuel and very easy to handle. It's amazing how well made the IG's are. Mine is technically an antique and yet except for some windows frames that we are restoring and an exhaust manifold issue, she is perfect.

So glad we moved up to a trawler from our past 26 foot Four Winns and Chaparral cruisers! Both are great boats but expensive to run and nowhere close to the cabin space and overall "Classic lines".

Even your IG badges look in good shape. Window rot is endemic, keeping the drainholes drilled through the frames clear is essential.
The 32 has great space for size, the fitout is in good balance. I went close to buying one with raw water cooled twin Lehman 80s, no heat exchangers, still not sure if it was the right decision. Enjoy your IG32!

We certainly like our 32. Lost interior space coming off a close to 40' sedan type cruiser, but the flybridge and deck space more than compensate.

Having just recently sold my Gourmet cruiser 32, I've had the opportunity to compare my (new to me) 42 Ocean Alexander with the GC. Of course the OA is a much faster boat (which I really dig!) but I miss the "simplicity" of the Halvorsen boat. It was not only a less complicated (systems) boat, it was "tough!" Having driven it for over 7 years and experiencing memorable short cruises, it's hard not to appreciate what we had. Don't get me wrong, the OA is a roomy, elegant, fast boat and we have already been off shore more than we did in the GC but the "effortless" enjoyment of the Halvorsen 32 will be long remembered.

If it's a ZF Hurst IRM 220 as in our boat, it's just 30 weight oil.

With the caveat that ours only takes a little less than 3 qts vs the 4.2 called for in the above link.

3 months update

Having owned our IG 36 now for 3 months am please to say that we are really enjoying the Trawler experience and the comfort that these vessels provide.
Am still learning how every thing works and how to maintain the vessel myself as I like to do most things myself, so far have serviced both engines and transmissions, and the genset, replaced missing plugs in teak decks, upgraded sound system, installed Webasto diesel heater, replaced VHF , fitted weaver snap davits for dinghy, replaced old plow anchor with a new Sarca excel, and love it, sets 1st time every time.
We have done several trips away and looking forward to lots more time on the water.

We are looking at, and considering, a 1978 36' Island Gypsy, hull #11, from memory. It is a non-aft cabin model, with flybridge. Apparently, it is the last wooden hull in this length the Kong and Halvorsen factory in HK built.

It has twin Ford Tempest engines (2715E). Fuel consumption is said to be ~20l/hr (5US gals/hr) combined at a cruise of 8kn. 8kn seems a bit optimistic for a waterline of 32', but it is an SD hull; I have no experience with these.

I have read all of this thread; assuming the hull is sound (she is slipped presently, and the shipwright is both maintaining and surveying her), what are the most common major potential problems with IGs of this vintage?

Separate questions now: how do these semi-displacement hulls behave in decent seas (like the 3–4m we see here quite regularly on the South Coast)? If we buy her, we would want to explore the coast and not stay inside. Thanks in advance!
