Islander Class - Design 164

The Islander Class was one of the designs generated from our Boston office and as such K. Aage Nielsen generated most of the plans. This was a stock design for the Henry R. Hinckley Company. The boat was later revised with more overhang and more sail area (and assigned design number #316). The revised model was renamed New Islander Class.

Here are the plans for the Islander Class.

And an article from Yachting magazine. Please double click for zoom.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 30'-0"
LWL 23'-0"
Beam 8'-4"

  1. There was for a number of years an Islander on a mooring in Belmont harbor in Chicago. The plans and photos don't adequately portray just how beautiful this little jewel is. She was clearly the best looking boat in the harbor, which is saying something as that anchorage contained L16s, 22s, Udell's, Stars, and Etchells. I spent a lot of time leaning on a harborside railing just staring at her. Like a beautiful woman, it was hard to take my eyes off her.
