Island Runner 35

Island Runner introduced the first truly high-performance center-console at The Miami International Boat Show in 1981. From that event on, the company has set the standard for top-quality open-sportfish boats, so if a sleek and stylish platform is what you are seeking, look no further! Island Runner has delivered the perfect package with their all new 35. This boat will undoubtedly become another Island Runner legend with its clean lines, well-thought out deck layout and long list of standard amenities which satisfy even the most discriminating angler.

The 35 starts with a completely hand-laid vinylester resin hull and is constructed with the use of a vacuum bag core-cell composite and lamination process which, along with a full molded inner liner, stainless steel hardware and triple batteries with switches and tinned leads, results in a rock-solid platform capable of handling just about anything Mother Nature can throw at it.

Tournament competitors and island hoppers will appreciate the 35’s huge in-deck aft storage boxes and, of course, what serious center-console would be complete without fresh and saltwater washdown systems, a pair of insulated fish boxes nearly six-feet long, lockable rod storage and dual anchor lockers – all standard equipment!

Island Runner’s 35 is also available as a flat deck model with single level deck from bow to stern. An oversized insulated forward macerated fish box with insulated hatch is designed to accommodate a large coffin box. The 35 is also available with forward-mounted family seating with gasketed hatches in each section revealing additional dry storage. These features allow Island Runner the ability to provide customer flexibility. Schedule a sea trial today and see what all the hype is about!

Bottom Line - Not only does the 35 Outboard share the sound construction and great performance that all Island Runners are known for, this new hull provides the smoothest ride ever.

Notable Features:

Pitchbait Livewells

Four-gallon livewells conveniently mounted in the forward cap are just what the live bait fisherman needs. Each has a clear gasketed, lockable lid and is fully pressurized.

Fold-Down Aft Seating

Convenient for runs to and from your favorite fishing grounds, the foldable aft bench seat is ideal for passengers looking to take a load off. Directly behind the seat is a transom-mounted raw and fresh water sink/shower.

Second Station

A powder-coated upper-station with Bimini top provides increased visibility and a bolder look - a worthy option for serious blue-water adventurers.
