This boat is exceptionally spacious and it’s sailing performance is outstanding. The fixed keel draft is only 3.8 inches. It has the feel of a much larger yacht. The wide and deep cockpit seats 8 in comfort. It has wheel steering which is rack & pinion unmatched for its positive feel and reliability. The boat has double lifelines. All lifelines have a quick release hook for convenient side entry. The engine is a 1995 Yanmar 2GM - 20F in board diesel with 18 horsepower. It only has 900 hours on it with a three-blade bronze prop and direct drive. It is a cutter with a main, stay- sail and furling Jenny. The stay- sail is self-tacking. I have owned many boats, and I can honestly say that this is the first sailboat I’ve owned where you can leave the wheel and the boat will track itself beautifully. It is in very good condition except the outside wood needs some work. We have had no problems with the boat. We have a diver that cleans the bottom every three weeks. The only reason that I am selling is that my vision and balance are very poor. I am afraid that my wife is going to get hurt since I no longer have confidence in my ability to help her if we get in trouble on the water. Sadly, I have turned into ballast on a boat because of my poor vision and equally poor balance. It is a beautiful boat, perfect for Florida waters because of its draft of only three point 8 inches and the cutter rig makes it extremely easy to sell. If you know anything about Island Packets you know that they are the Rolls Royce’s of the water. You can reach me at show contact info . Take advantage of my inability to handle a sailboat and come and look at it.
