"Time Goes By" is one of LESS THAN 20 shoal-draft Island Packets 27's built. She is also the ONLY IP 27 to ever go through a full refit at the Island Packet factory in 2014. Loaded, self-sufficient, and ready for world cruising...this pocket cruiser has it all!!!!

243 Island Packet 27's were built, but less than 20 were the innovative shallow draft design, with a full keel AND centerboard. "Time Goes By" draws only 2'8" with the centerboard up, making her perfect for cruising the Bahamas and other less-explored areas. And she doesn't ever need to be plugged in to the dock, as she's loaded with new solar panels and a wind generator. Nearly everything on her is brand new!

Her owner is an Island Packet fanatic who spared no expense getting this boat JUST RIGHT to suit his sense of adventure and outdoor lifestyle. He's an avid explorer, and planned to use this boat as his platform to see the world. However, plans have changed and now this spectacular little ship is ready for her next adventure. This is YOUR opportunity to own a dream! You can cruise in absolute comfort and style aboard "Time Goes By," with room on deck for your toys (she comes with two stand up paddleboards!).

Let the photos and specifications tell you the rest of the story. And let me show you this beautiful boat! She's in Indiantown, FL--a great central location where you can simply put her in the water and head to the Bahamas in a matter of days!

Accommodations

This is a 27' boat with the room of one that is much bigger. Her 10' 6" beam is carried forward, providing comfortable accommodations for up to 4 people.

Upon entering the salon, the galley is to port and double quarterberth is to starboard. The drop-leaf table in the salon can seat up to 6 for comfortable onboard dining.

There is a private head forward and on the starboard side, with a large hanging locker and much more space than a typical boat of this size. The v-berth features a brand new custom innerspring mattress with custom fitted sheets, and is comfortable and large enough for two to sleep in luxury.  

Come onboard this boat to see all she has to offer! She has more room than many boats twice her size, and the comfort of her interior gives you a great space where you can work, live, and unwind after a full day of adventure on the water.

As an added bonus, the "teak and holly" cabin sole is brand new durable PlasTeak from the 2014 refit!
