Island Packet

Island Packet

For more than 30 years, Island Packet has been building full-keel bluewater cruisers in a signature beige gel coat color that sets them apart in any anchorage. These boats have a reputation for strength with their solid glass hull construction, versatility of the cutter rig, and practicality due to little exterior teak and clear deck layouts. The line includes models from 36 to 48 feet with aft and center cockpit designs that enjoy a very loyal owner following. There is also a twin-cockpit motorsailer, the SP Cruiser, which has been touted for its livability. On the horizon is an upcoming model designed by Tim Jackett of Tartan Yachts fame and destined to be called the Blue Jacket 40.
