fresh water 31' Island Packet Milwaukee

1988 Island Packet 31 LOA 34'6" LOD 31' Beam 11'6" Draft 4 ' Ballast 4500# Displacement 11,000#
Hull number 229 of 265
Keel stepped mast, sloop rigged, with new Sobstad main 2013 and New 135 North Sails Genoa 2010, North Sails Roller furler, three halyards, Five Lewmar winches 3 single speed, two self tailing 2 speed all taken apart and greased last year.
Tankage: Fuel 25 gallons, Water 70 gallons, Waste 10 Gallon poly (new in 09 with all lines replaced)
Diesel Yanmar 3 GM 30 F producing 27 HP with a 90 amp alternator (new 2010) new electric lift pump (2012), and new mechanical low pressure pump on engine (2012), Engine has 2000 hours with Kanzaki reduction gear coupled to a fixed three blade wheel. I also have a maintenance log showing all routine maintenance performed and when it was done dating back to purchase date of 2006, For this spring both fuel filters, reduction gear, and crankcase oil should be changed which I will show the new owner how to do if he or she would like I will also gladly help with spring commissioning i.e. rigging, powering up all systems etc.
Boat has been in the Great lakes all its life. I purchased this boat in 2006. My wife and I have cruised on Northern and Mid Lake MI with this boat since 2007. In my opinion this is one of the best sailboats to cruise the Great Lakes (obviously biased).
The boat has a full keel yet only drafts four feet and can get into many anchorages and harbors a vessel drafting 6 or more feet would not dare. Island Packets are extremely well built the hull is solid fiberglass and the deck is cored with Airex, a closed cell foam, not balsa or plywood which is used in most production boats, because of this delamination issues are greatly reduced. The hull to deck joint is a shoebox type through bolted with nyloc nuts every 4-6 inches liberal amounts of 3m 5200 are also used throughout the joint which is a urethane adhesive/sealant well known in the marine industry for its strength. The hull to deck joint can be observed throughout the vessel but is easily observed in the cockpit and anchor lockers. It is fully equipped with a two burner propane stove with oven, 6 gallon water heater AC powered along with heat exchanger, Adley Barbour cold plate refrigeration twin bin stainless steel deep well sink, and adequate storage throughout. The boat has a cockpit shower, stern rail gate with swim ladder, 9 stainless steel opening ports with screens and four deck hatches.



Upgrades and new equipment include: (descriptions are approximate)
New Sobstad 8oz dacron loose foot main full batten on top two reef points 2013
New 135 6 oz dacron North Sails Genoa 2010
New (2) solar powered stainless steel hatch fans 2012
New 6 gallon water heater 2011
New 20 watt solar panel with 4.5 amp regulator 2012
New Ray Marine auto pilot 2008
New 3.6 GPM fresh water pump 2008
New deep cycle Batteries group 31 2013
New Garmin 440 color GPS plotter 2009
New 40 amp 3 bank Xantrex multi stage charger with remote panel 2011
New Forespar Nova lift for outboard 2009
New mast boot installed summer 2012
200' of 5/8 w 10' 5/8" galvanized chain rode for a Bruce anchor 2008
100' 1/2 rode on a smaller Danforth anchor 2008
New Jabsco twist lock head 2012
Raymarine Tri-Data 2005
Raymarine wind indicator 2005
LED cabin lighting 2009
Complete bottom job in 2007 All bottom paint was stripped blisters were opened and wetted out with Interlux Epiglass than faired with VC watertight finally 5 coats of Interlux 2000 were applied, the boat has had no blister issues since, and all blisters were gelcoat related not into the laminate.


Entertainment and accessories included:
AM FM CD player with IPod jack and four speakers two in cabin two in cockpit
8" flat screen AC DC powered TV with built in DVD player and swivel wall mount can be viewed in main saloon or V-berth also includes converter box and interior antennae.
Origo microwave oven (we removed it for cruising but it is included)
Older Meridian color hand held GPS plotter (used as a backup)
ICOM VHF with DSC 4' antennae on top of mast
Bimini with partial cockpit enclosure
Cruise Air 12k Btu reverse cycle heat/air conditioning with programmable electronic climate control system
Full canvas winter outdoor cover and a steel cradle
One electrically operated Bilge pump with float switch and one manually operated Whale brand pump.
One Weems and Plath oil lamp in main saloon

Known discrepancies any competent surveyor will point out are,

#1 The foam cored rudder is wet, most are, at the end of this year I drilled a hole at bottom of rudder to drain water its been properly filled, faired ,and painted it should be noted no rust staining was observed on foam core which would indicate corrosion issues with the rudder shaft.
#2 The single line cockpit reefing system is not operational (the car that travels in the boom is shot) When I need to reef the main I use a cleat on the boom which works fine as long as you don't wait for the weather to build. Any qualified rigger or competent sailor should be able to easily fix this.
#3 The teak bright works are not finished It used to have Cetol on it but I stripped it and have gone with a natural look which I am fine with I'm including several quarts of Teaqua which acts like a stain preservative if you care to finish it.
#4 The two areas of gel coat crazing are observed along both toe rails starboard and port side from bow to mast (approximately) They were noted in 2006 survey it was noted as a cosmetic issue not structural I have since filled both sides with 4200 uv sealant its not the prettiest but it is 100% effective and there is no delamination.
Before I bought this boat I did my research and these boats by far are some of the best built out there. They also hold their value better than any Catalina or Hunter in its class.
ASKING 56,000
Thank You Jeff 414-460-9679
