This Island Packet 38 is a stunning example; she is well-specified, and her condition is excellent!
She is set up for long-distance cruising and is a perfect blue-water cruising vessel. She benefits from having a large tankage for both water and fuel; she has solar panel charging, windvane self-steering, an adequate battery, a reliable, powerful Yanmar engine and the standing rigging was replaced in 2019!
She is equipped with a recent electronics package with a Garmin radar, chartplotter and AIS system.
Island packets are built to a high standard and are known as a go-anywhere safe and comfortable sea-going vessel; the boat is currently on hard standing and ready to view.
