Island Packet 26

I am interested in the Island Packet 26 MK1 or Bombay Express. I think the shoal draft and wide beam would work for me.
Probably not a great sailing boat, but I have not been able to find anyone who has sailed one. Would like to know if it has any major flaws in the sailing dept. Has anyone sailed one?

My buddy just bought one and I can't hardly find any information about the bombay 26 express.

Watch our refit progress on our 1970 Morgan 30-1 on youtube.

Re: Island Packet 26

I think there were only a very few built?
Very first IP ever built is still owned I believe by the same family and is sailing around I think the Tampa Bay Area.
You may try the IP website, have to be someone there.
