1989 Island Packet 35

Southampton, United Kingdom


A fine example of the very popular Island Packet 35. She is extremley well equiped with radar, chart plotter, autopilot, AIS and wind generator.  New engine in 2008, new sails in 2011, rigging renewed 2012-15.  IP's are very well built, reliable and safe cruisers suitable for extended cruising. For her age she compares well with Island Packet's newer models for comfort and quality.

Re-antifouled and serviced 2017 with full cruising records, service history, spares and loads of running kit.  Originally sailed from US Great Lakes, Cayman, Caribbean then via Azores to EU in 2012.  EU and Mediterranean cruising until recently returned to UK south coast for sale.  Very proud owner and local crew happy to encourage new owners. Currently lying ashore in Cowes, IoW laid-up for now.
