Many of our used boats are backed up to a dock on land where you can climb aboard Mediterranean style, and we have boats all over in other marinas as well. We provide all types of sailboats from small trailerables to large blue water vessels. We sell sailing cruisers, racers and day sailors. We also sell interesting powerboats from picnic boats to cruisers.

38' Island Packet 380
2000 US$ 223,000

THIS IP 380 looks like she just came off the showroom floor.  She is immaculate and has always been in fresh water. Most of everything has been upgraded, including the replacement of the aluminum holding tank to stainless (2010).  Designed by Robert Johnson, and because of her excellent build quality and moderate draft, Island Packets are in demand in the waters of Florida and the Caribbean where cruising can be demanding and the water skinny. Built of the highest quality by skilled craftsmen, the builder strives for excellence in design, engineering and construction. The cutter rig is a favorite of offshore cruisers due to its versatility, ease of use and excellent performance over a wide range of wind and sea conditions. The deck is well laid out for comfort and safety. Wide side paths, premium nonskid surface, raised bulwarks forward and full length continuous SS handrails on the cabin top. The helmsman has an excellent view from his/her raised seat with cushioned backrest. The self-bailing cockpit has full length seats, contoured for comfort to accommodate a large crew or just for stretching out and also features a built-in beverage locker, 2 large seat lockers with gas supports for easy access. The console-mounted steering station features rack and pinion steering which is reliable, strong and sensitive unmatched by other wheel steering designs. There’s a hand-held shower that reaches to the swim step, deep swim ladder w/rubber treads and two stern seats. Below decks there’s an impressive accommodation plan with spacious surroundings. The galley immediately to starboard of the companionway is accessible from cockpit or the main salon with lots of details for cruising. The wrap-around design provides lots of counter space There’s an exceptional amount of storage space throughout. There are 3 cabins that sleep a total of 7.  The forward cabin has privacy doors to both the salon and head. There’s a large centerline berth. The aft cabin has a privacy door to the main salon and a large thwart double bed. The head is large and features a fold-away shower stall door. The mast is keel-stepped with twin backstays for easy stern boarding & unobstructed helm seating. This boat is designed for safe, long distant cruising in comfort.
