She is fast and planes with ease, but is also stiff and forgiving even for novice sailors. The broad beam provides the Islands 15 with great stability and safety. The gunwales are flared for dryness and rigidity. Large dry below-deck storage is provided under the foredeck and optional gear compartments are on the port and starboard sides. The boat is self-bailing, constructed of hand-laid Fiberglass and features a complete liner and extra roomy decks with integral non-skid surfaces. Molded in place foam makes the boat unsinkable.
