Checkout this great deal on this Island Packet 38 !
The Island Packet 38 is arguably the largest boat under 40 feet. It has so much interior volume that you will think you are on a much larger boat. In all of my years of selling boats I have not seen another sailboat of this size that has the storage capacity of the IP 38. I recommend labeling your storage compartments and logging where you put things to save you time in finding them later. You could cruise for months without stopping for stores. I also know people who single hand this boat which is a testament to its ease of handling. Yet, it is roomy enough for two couples, 7 friends, or a large family and a pet or two.
Island Packets are well known for safety, sea-keeping, and sturdy construction. Very few boats hold their value as well and as such might be one of the least expensive boats to own.
This particular boat has been nicely outfitted for cruising and this couple has certainly see a lot of beautiful waters and Islands in the years that they have owned her.
Now it’s your turn.

The boat was purchased new in 1990 by a couple that kept her on Lake Ontario, in New York. The current owners bought her in 1996 and sailed her to Lake Michigan and kept her in Wisconsin. They outfitted her for Ocean Sailing and joined the Rally 1500 in 1999 and left the Chesapeake and sailed to the Virgin Islands. They went up and down the Windward and Leeward Islands and ended up in Grenada. In 2002 they proceeded from Trinidad to Venezuela and stayed in that area for four years. In 2006 they went to the ABC Islands, Columbia, and ended up in the San Blas Islands for four years. In 2010 they continued to Panama and remained there for several years. In 2013 they salied to Florida and have been here ever since. Now it’s your turn.
