1988 Island Packet 38 For Sale

This is definitely a pre-listing and I’ll get some more pics in the coming weeks but I wanted to get something up.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
After back surgeries in 2018, 2019, and now staring another one in the face I’m throwing in the towel – apparently I’m not equipped for the solo sailor life. But it’s going to workout for somebody because I’ve spent the last few years getting my 1988 Island Packet ready for full time cruising (I did manage to get 6mo in before blowing out the back yet again.)

If you’re not familiar with Island Packets I would encourage you to do some research – there are multiple owner forums. To each their own but for me this was the best mix of displacement and stability, draft, sail plan, size/comfort, and build quality for what I wanted to do. They are very well built, go-anywhere boats that are very comfortable to be on. My plan was to spend several years sailing throughout the Caribbean and then figure it out from there. Known IP issues of embedded chainplates (replaced with Titanium) and aluminum holding tank (replaced with Duraweld poly tank) have been addressed.

Below is a list of items I’ve upgraded since ownership – it is by no means a complete list. Every major system on the boat has been upgraded/replaced. Most of the running rigging was replaced in 2020 and there is a complete spare set of lines for all. There is an extensive list of additional spares – alternator, starter, etc.. There are detailed historical maintenance logs and documentation for ship systems. A separate and detailed engine survey was performed @ 4375hrs of use that included oil analysis – those results are available.

She is currently on the hard in Wilmington, NC, and will be back in the water over the next month. She’s having a complete professional topside detail while out of the water as well as new bottom paint. The only real known issue with the boat is ascetic and related to the bright work – back issues and surgeries don’t go well with varnish work. I made a diving catch on the cockpit items and dorade boxes but the rest of it needs to be addressed. If you’re going to own a boat like this you’re going to have to have a plan for that….even if it’s just to let it go.

Otherwise the boat is in great shape and ready to go anywhere. If you’re interested please message me directly.

Re: 1988 Island Packet 38 For Sale

From a former resident (part time) of Kure Beach, I wish you well in health and the sale.

This is exactly what I will be looking for in another year when I 'retire'. Where do you keep her? In CB?

Best to you,

Eric

Checking in. Hope you're feeling well.

Any movement on the boat? I keep coming back to read the ad again. Trying to figure out a way to make it work.

Nice IP!

I feel poor after reading the list of refit items. I better go re-budget what I might have to spend to update an older boat.

Moving the boat to Oriental, NC, this week where it will be listed with a broker. Should be up on Yachtworld in the next week or so.
