Review of the Island Packet 350:
"The 350 is designed and built to ABS standards; it’s also CE certified Category A (unrestricted offshore use) for the European market. All of this points to a meticulous, stringent set of construction parameters....What you end up with in the 350 is a solid, dependable cutter, put together with care and expertise and developed over time for mainstream cruisers keen on anything from local sailing to long-distance voyaging. There is plenty of storage - plus the payload-carrying ability to use it - and a performance profile that puts a premium on stability, ease of handling and comfort underway" - Cruising World

Cruising World Magazine Review
"The 350 is designed and built to ABS standards; it’s also CE certified Category A (unrestricted offshore use) for the European market. All of this points to a meticulous, stringent set of construction parameters. The hull is built of solid triaxial fiberglass using vinylester in the outer layers to curb water penetration, then polyester behind that. It is laminated by hand in conjunction with a pressure-fed resin impregnator, and stiffened with an integrated molded-in structural grid. Island Packet’s proprietary gel coating system (PolyClad) allows the company to offer an unprecedented 10-year limited warranty against blistering. The deck is cored with rot-resistant PolyCore foam to retard water penetration; fittings on deck sit atop raised platforms molded into the part and are backed by integral aluminum plates. Typically, attention to detail at the tooling stage is superb and that is why components such as this can be rendered so professionally.
One construction item is of special note. The stainless chain plates are welded to an L-shaped flange that sits beneath and interlocks with the in-turned fiberglass hull flange along the rail. Below this, the extension of each chain plate is secured further by long strands of unidirectional fiberglass that fan out and are glassed into the hull all the way down to well below the waterline. The result is a chain-plate assembly that successfully integrates rigging loads with the monococque structure of the hull and deck and ties virtually the entire boat together with stainless steel and uni glass. A very reassuring detail."
Practical Sailing on the 350:
"The topside scenario emphasizes practical cruising. The cockpit is safe and secure with good high coamings for ocean work, and the seating is long enough to stretch out on horizontally should you want to sleep there beneath the stars. Safety harness pad eyes are installed at the factory. Primaries are within reasonable reach of the helm, and line bins keep spaghetti under control. The bow with its sturdy sprit is dedicated to anchoring: The hook is simple to store and deploy, the locker is deep, and a prime spot for windlass installation is tooled into the deck. The cutter rig offers a wide range of easy to handle sail combinations"
Manufacturer Provided Description
The Island Packet 350 is the result of extensive hands-on design and sailing experience at Island Packet, combined with the feedback from owners with millions of miles of cruising experience around the globe. Noted naval architect Bob Johnson, Island Packet's founder and CEO, has fully integrated these resources to create the 350, another in Island Packet's award winning line of cruising sailboats.
The Full Foil keel continues as the foundation of the Island Packet concept, and its design and construction provide a host of advantages to the cruising sailor: moderate draft for access to a wider variety of cruising grounds, integral one piece construction for superior strength, a highly effective airfoil shape for excellent windward performance, and a modern hull form for enhanced speed and maneuverability. In addition, the safety and sea keeping offered by this keel design provide both peace of mind and additional comfort while underway.
While Bob Johnson insists his designs are "first and foremost excellent cruising yachts," the performance of these yachts has earned them an impressive number of victories in prestigious offshore races around the world.
The cockpit has full length contoured seats that accommodate a large crew or invite stretching out. The helmsperson will enjoy excellent visibility from the separate raised seat with padded backrest. The console mounted steering features Island Packet's trademark premium rack and pinion geared design, providing a combination of reliability, strength, and sensitivity unmatched by any other wheel steering installation. Cockpit convenience features abound with standard details such as a built-in insulated cooler, two large seat lockers, a hand held personal shower (cold only) that easily reaches the stern platform, two stern rail seats, and a pedestal mounted folding table.
Island Packet's long term commitment to the cutter rig, paralleling that of experienced offshore sailors worldwide, is due to its versatility, ease of use, and excellent performance over a wide range of conditions. The integral bowsprit gives an extended base to the sailplan for added sail area and provides for optimum sheeting angles for close-winded performance. The new 350 improves upon this sailplan even further with a freestanding staysail boom, simplifying control and adding performance to this highly effective sail. The mainsail is equipped with a dual, single line reefing system or, optionally, with an in-mast furler. All primary sail control lines lead aft, allowing routine sail trim and setting - reefing activity to be done from the comfort and security of the cockpit.
Entering the new 350, one is immediately impressed by the spacious and bright feeling below. A harmonious blend of practical cruising features and live aboard comfort is evidenced throughout. The base of the companionway ladder is surrounded by a molded sole area with slip-resistant surface, which extends into the nav and galley areas to provide both secure footing and easy maintenance for this busy central area.
The main salon is equally suited for social gatherings, off-watch retreats, or dining. The central hinged table may be either secured against the bulkhead mounted bottle and glass rack or easily lowered for a large dining area. An exceptional amount of interior stowage is available in the salon, as elsewhere throughout the interior, due in good part to the generous tankage centrally located below the cabin sole. Besides its obvious benefit of improving stowage, this feature also provides additional comfort underway by keeping the considerable weight of tank fluids low and out of the ends as well as reducing fore and aft trim changes with varying tank levels.
The nav table shares the aft end of the port settee for the navigator's seat and has ample room for bound chart packs or folded Admiralty charts. A handy drawer is provided outboard of the table, plus a locker underneath the table and a chart drawer under the starboard settee offer additional convenience.
The forward stateroom features a large Pullman berth, upholstered dressing seat with contoured backrest; large cedar lined hanging locker, bureau cabinet, berth shelves, and plenty of stowage volume under the berth. A dorade vent, opening ports, and overhead hatch - as well as private head access and ample room to move about - further enhance this exceptional forward cabin. Island Packet yachts have long been noted for their spacious and livable interior designs, as evidenced by Cruising World magazine's comment on the Island Packet 45's forward head as "the most comfortable head afloat." The Island Packet 350 should garner equal accolades for this particularly practical head layout with the large wrap around counter, lots of cabinets, a shower with contoured seat and curtain, and drains that work heeled in either direction. Private access from either the salon or forward cabin.
As with the forward stateroom, a generous Pullman style berth is featured in this fully enclosed aft cabin. A cedar lined hanging locker, bureau cabinet, full length mirror, long shelf, stowage bins, well placed lights, two opening ports, and an overhead hatch make this area inviting and very livable.
