General Details

A refreshing example of how a boat should be maintained.
If you're seeking for an outstanding yacht and an incredible value, this Island Packet 38 is worthy of your personal inspection and serious consideration.

Over the years many 38 foot cruising boats have been built, but none better nor more proven than the Island Packet 38. Actually, she is 41'6" LOA and is solidly built and very roomy. Featuring a large 2-cabin and a 2-head design, the IP 38 is ideal for serious cruising, live aboard comfort or weekend getaways. Island Packet Yachts are known for their spaciousness, well ventilated interiors and comfortable motion in a seaway. You will sail this boat when others remain at the dock. You will not find a more robust yacht at a better price.
