Island Packet's Features
From the Full Foil Keel® with protected prop and rudder, to the roller furling cutter rig with Hoyt® boom, every aspect of every Island Packet has been carefully designed and built to maximize the pleasures of the cruising lifestyle. Exclusive design features, proprietary material technologies, unmatched resale values and an award winning customer service network all combine to make Island Packet the benchmark for cruising yachts. Every Island Packet from the original IP26 to the magnificent IP485 is the result of the consistent application and continuing evolution of this philosophy, which affects everything from the initial design concept through the manufacturing process, into the warranty period and beyond for our pre-owned buyers. This philosophy helps to explain how Island Packet has grown to be a world leader in the design and manufacture of cruising yachts since it's founding in 1979. It also helps to explain why Island Packets are respected and admired by discerning sailors everywhere.
The Full Foil Keel® offers a combination of moderate draft,
superb stability (both initial and final), structural survivability,
and off wind seakeeping unequalled by any fin keel design alternative.
For cruising sailors, nothing provides confidence like the
protected rudder and integrally molded hull and keel of an
The Hoyt Boom equipped fully roller furling rig is the most
highly versatile and easily managed sailplan available on the
Island Packet’s Three Year Stem to Stern Warranty is unmatched in the industry, and nicely compliments the ten year warranties covering deck core degradation and osmotic hull
blistering. No other boat builder offers this combination and
length of coverages.
The unique tankage configuration below the cabin sole maximizes storage space elsewhere on an Island Packet, providing more useable enclosed storage space than any other yacht in the same size class.
Advanced premium materials and exacting craftsmanship help build a yacht with the highest retained resale value of any yacht built in the US. This translates to one of the lowest cost of ownership of any yacht built!
Race winning performance continues to be proven in offshore venues around the world (see page of results elsewhere in this manual).
Every Island Packet is built and certified to the highest standards offered by the NMMA and IMCI. This provides real peace of mind and a buyer’s assurance of well engineered and thought out assembly and construction.
