General Details



Desert Star, like all Island Packets, is a seaworthy and comfortable offshore cruiser and has been such a very successful model in the Island Packet family of yachts. It really stands out in the cruising circles!  The cutter rig with all roller furling sails (including in-mast main) is safe and easy to handle from the cockpit even for the solo sailor. Desert Star is also equipped with a spinnaker.

Other great features on this model are Low Engine Hours, NEW 2012 Standing and Running Rigging, Generator, and SSB.

Desert Star is a quality yacht that should be on anyone's "Must-See" list if you are shopping for a blue water curising boat. She will make a great cruising home for many years to come.
