Although the facts are somewhat murky, it seems likely that the Islander 24 and the Islander Bahama 24, two vessels with lapstrakes molded into their identical hulls but different deck layouts (one a trunk cabin with a doghouse, the other with a raised deck), were marketed first by McGlasson Marine, then by Wayfarer Yacht Corporation, and then by Islander Yachts, before the designs were taken over and marketed in slightly different form by Columbia Yachts. Except for the lapstrakes and a few other details, the Islander 24 is said to be almost an exact copy of the Columbia Contender 24 (page 283), and the Islander Bahama 24 is almost an exact copy of the Columbia Challenger 24 (above). Best features: See the notes for the Challenger 24. Worst features: Same comment.
