1988 Island Packet 38

38 ft
Island Packet

The Island Packet 38 was the first Island Packet model to feature two head
compartments, setting the standard for all subsequent IP’s by combining enhanced
creature comforts with Island Packet’s traditional seakeeping capabilities. The
yacht has been used only sparingly in recent years but has received loving care,
reflected in the new equipment and upgrades below. The result is a great
opportunity to purchase a yacht capable of extensive coastal or long-distance
cruising, fully found and a wonderful liveaboard.

 Topsides the Island Packet 38 features a large unobstructed deck and cabin top
surfaces with raised bulwarks, premium coarse diamond non-skid, full length
cabin top handrails, welded double bow and stern rails and double lifelines. The
custom full enclosure incorporates additional handrails for ease of access; the
enclosure also includes screens for summer days at anchor.

The moderate full keel design, unique to Island Packet combines a contemporary
performance hull form with a foil shaped full keel that provides spirited
performance with comfortable cruising. Spinache, an Island Packet 35, regularly
won the Marion to Bermuda race with its single handing skipper. The current
owners of Horizons returned from the Dominican Republic to Miami in five
spirited days and nights.

The interior features a tri-cabin layout with large forward and aft staterooms,
each with private access to an adjoining head with shower. The master stateroom
forward utilizes the full beam of the yacht to create an open, roomy
layout. Additional cabinetry was added by the first owner for more storage for
extended periods aboard. The head features a standing room shower.

The aft cabin features a queen size mattress, and the hanging locker is cedar

The main salon is bright and open. Large settees, a wide sole, wall-mounted
retractable table, pullout double berth and numerous stowage areas allow for a
variety of uses, including use as an extra cabin. The navigation station was
extended to allow for the addition of extra navigation and audio
equipment. Extra light comes into the cabin from the poly cabin doors used when
not in a seaway.

The large wrap-around galley is convenient to both cockpit and salon yet out of
companionway traffic and features a new Seaward Princess stove.
