Re: 1995 Island Packet 37

Looks like what I would be looking for if in the market for another sailboat
Talk more:
How does she sail? Pointing good, easy motion?
Speed under power @ what fuel consumption?
Bottom, blisters? Rudder? Will she survey good, no known surprises?
Etc.

Re: 1995 Island Packet 37

Good additional things to point out. She has no blisters and has never had them.

For those of you unfamiliar with island Packets- they are cruising boats, with a modified full keel (angled down from the bow). She is 19,000 pound displacement. As a cutter rig, with full keel, she is a dream on a reach. She will not point as well as a fin keel, she will go about 45-60 off the wind, the stronger the wind, the higher she will point. I don't really think about reefing until the wind hits 25 knots. She sails along nicely in strong winds at 7-8 knots. Unlike what some people say, these boats will sail in light winds. I have sailed her in under 8 knots with just the genoa and she will move along.

All lines lead to the cockpit, I am generally a single hander and have had no problems sailing her solo. I single handed her to the Bahamas from Annapolis, part inside and part outside without a problem.

She has handled some really lousy weather in trips to Bermuda. These boats handle large waves and high winds very well, they are solid boats. As a cutter rig, you have mulitple sail combinations to handle various wind conditions.

Fuel wise- depends on how you run her, of course. I generally got 1 hour per gallon of diesel.

Island Packet has been bought out by Hake Yachts, and while there is some talk about them producing more IPs, I doubt the quality will be the same.

Re: 1995 Island Packet 37

Try Listing here on Sailboats for Sale Privately. It's entirely free, there are no catches. Many cruisers have sold their sailboat there and saved thousands in brokerage fees. Much like here on Cruisers Forum of course, but it doesn't hurt to double the exposure.
