Re: Island Packet Blue Jacket 40

I hope IP redesign the chainplates setup in this new model , no doubt about the quality of construction, Ip`s have a good reputation in hulls and decks.
More pics.

Re: Island Packet Blue Jacket 40

I believe they are renderings:

- the crew wear no pfds (legal in the US?),
- the sails look absolutely smooth, the slight crease on the main is in always the same place and the sails are always trimmed at the same angle,
- the hatches/washboards are always shut tight even though there are people onboard,
- the older crew are not steering, can't see any AP control,
- where the sails are furled in there is not a slightest amt of main visible outside of the mast,
- no visible sheet from hoyt's to the reefed jib,
- the genoa sheet is led on the wrong side of the jib when sailing,
- port side hull windows do not match stbd side windows.

Look rendernings to me allright.

That boat looks awesome to me.

I like the performance cruisers. Now, if only I had the means...

Re: Island Packet Blue Jacket 40

I think it is a pretty cool looking boat. Being that I am real close to IP's facility. I have seen them on a couple occasions. I have never been aboard one. I am also curious about the boat's PHRF rating. If I do get an opportunity to check one out I will.

I am not a big fan of the designs that some of the major builders are putting out nowadays. This boat seems a little more conservative in appearance. I don't know if it will be profitable for them, but as far as my tastes go it is a step in the right direction. If I had to buy a new 40 footer, I would give it a look.

Re: Island Packet Blue Jacket 40

This boat was featured at the 2014 Toronto boat show. In my opinion, it was the nicest sailboat on display at the show. The layout, the finish, the overall looks, were great. All for a price tag of around 425k! It looks like a great cruiser that can get up and go!

Re: Island Packet Blue Jacket 40

interesting, looks like the lovechild of a beneteau and an island packet. built by island packet so I'm sure the build quality is excellent. it's not exclusive to this boat but coming from primarily a racing background I find it interesting that twin wheels, which have long been a staple on many racing boats are coming standard fare on a lot of cruising boats

Re: Island Packet Blue Jacket 40

Larsen Marine in Waukegan, IL has one on display that I saw today. It is a very, very good looking boat. It really stands out from the Jeanneaus lined up next to it. The boot stripe is so shiny that you can recognize a face in its reflection. It is a very deep rich blue color. The interior is striking with a beautiful wood finish and quality construction.

The no slip deck is molded into the deck and kind of feels like a thin rubber mat. I'm new to sailing these types of boats. With that said, I have not seen a deck like this. Struck me as highly desirable but i need to learn more.

On sale for $379,000. Looking for a partner with $350,000 to spend. (I am very good company!)
