"RAINBOW" has had VERY LITTLE USE, & Boasts
ONLY 900 ENGINE HOURS,
not another like it on the market!!!!!!
The Island Packet 27’ "RAINBOW" is a rugged and roomy full keel mini cruiser. The IP27 maintains one of the best resale values in the market today. "RAINBOW" is well maintained, well equipped and most importantly, very attractively priced.
Step aboard this 27-footer and there's no "bobbly" small-boat sensation. At 8,000 pounds she sits solid in the water. The Island Packet 27 displaces as much as 3,000 pounds more than rival auxiliaries of her size and averages about 1,500 pounds heavier than the boats available in her class in 1980. Her big-boat feel and heavyweight status come from the way she's built. Her long keel may set her apart from the crowd, but rugged construction is another Island Packet hallmark, and it all started here." ~ Practical Sailor
"The Island Packet 27 features the highly successful Island Packet design concept that combines a modern full keel with handsome traditional styling, a versatile, easy managed rig, and an unusually spacious and livable interior. The modern full keel design, unique to the Island Packet line, provides the benefits of spirited, powerful performance comparable to deeper fin keel designs, with added advantages of "hand-off" tacking and fingertip steering control, and superior sea-keeping and safety. And the moderate draft full keel gives the full capability for blue water passages as well as exploring shallow coastal waters.
On deck, the Island Packet 27 features a wide bowsprit anchor platform, raised bulwarks, premium coarse diamond nonskid, full length cabin top hand rails, and double bow and stern rails with double lifelines for secure deck work. The roomy cockpit features contoured seats with deep coaming backrests, a comfortable helmsman's seat, large seat locker and loose gear tray, cockpit icebox, water tight engine access hatch and rack and pinon geared wheel steering for precise feel and utmost reliability.
The spacious interior layout provided by the broad beam design offers an exceptional amount of room and livability.
