I have had this 1995 IP 37 since 1997. For my wife and I, this is our perfect boat. We live in Tennessee and have had the boat on the Tennessee River and now in Bradenton, FL preparing for the cruising portion of our lives. We've sailed her from Tennessee down the Tenn/Tom waterway to Mobile and across the Gulf twice and down to the Keys. She has been a very comfortable, stable, and forgiving vessel. Even though I have sailed for yeas on inland lakes, the challenge of the open water
was much more easily taken on our Island Packet, OPTIMYSTIQUE.
As I look at other boats, I can find none that would serve our needs any better than the one we have.
