Most anyone looking to go cruising or buy their next boat will know and consider the Island Packet as a worthwhile option. They are strong, well built, safe cruisers. They have stood the test of time, and are still going today - a rarity in sailboat production!
But why so good? Reading between the lines on the IP 38, you'll see they accomplished many attributes you just won't find in a modern boat today. With a Ballast to Displacement ratio of nearly 50%, a 5' draft and and inner fore stay for a storm jib, this boat can equally hold up well in a blow offshore, or duck into the ICW for protection. With a 51' mast, she'll have no restrictions. So, you have a boat that can handle it all. And all this under 40'.
This Island Packet 38 has been sailed between Massachusetts and Florida/Bahamas by the current owners for 16 years - having been the second owner when they purchased the boat. After many seasons cruising, it's time for them to pass this sea worthy hull to the next adventurer. She's got all the cruising gear on board and is ready to go.
