Shorn Lamb

Shorn Lamb

is a one owner Island Packet 38.  She has been well enjoyed and upgraded.  While Island Packet construction is well documented, Shorn Lamb has received an additional bit of protection and strength.  Bergen Marine Services of Rock Hall, MD has applied a vinyl ester sheath below the water line.  This application ensures additional impervious strength.

As if that is not enough, she has new water and fuel tanks, engine mounts, refrigerator and stove.  Wait!  There's more!   Please venture on to the rest of this listing!

Shorn Lamb is waiting for her next adventures and float plans.

About the Island Packet 38

The Island Packet 38 features the well proven and highly acclaimed Island Packet design concept that combines a modern full keel hull with traditional styling.  The full keel design is unique combining contemporary performance with a foil shaped full keel.

The roomy cockpit has contoured seats, a comfortable helmsman seat and rack and pinion steering.  

The interior features a tri-cabin layout with forward and aft staterooms each with adjoining heads.  There is a large central salon with comfortable seating and stowaway dining table that seats 7.

The roomy forward stateroom features storage and an upgraded comfortable foam mattress.  

The large wraparound galley is u-shaped and out of the way of companionway traffic.  There is ample equipment, storage and preparation areas for the most demanding gourmet chef.  

Excellent engine access is provided through removable panels on either side and behind the companionway ladder.  

There are screens for all 6 hatches, 12 opening portholes and the companionway.

Construction quality materials and finish are to the highest standards on the Island Packet 38.  Add the additional measures that the owner has taken, and she is second to none.
