1988 27' Island Packet 27

Havre De Grace, MD



The Island Packet 27 is a very large small cruiser with much more elbow room than you would expect.  "Triton" will take you just about anywhere you would want to go in comfort and safety and with surprising performance.  The 27 is the perfect family cruiser with room to sleep 6.  She has a nice sized head with hot/cold pressure water, complete galley, and a fold-up table that is not crowding the salon after dinner.  Her cockpit is huge with room to sail, entertain or snooze.  And, Island Packets hold their value so well.  This 27 is equipped and ready to provide a great getaway.

Accommodations and Walkthru

There is a comfortable Vee Berth forward with a large opening hatch.  Aft of which on starboard is the roomy Head with commode, sink, shower, wet locker, and opening port.  Across on port from the head is a hanging locker.  Continuing aft is the Main Saloon.  There is a cleverly designed bulkhead hung table on Starboard that is out of the way when not needed making the Saloon seem so much larger than most boats. The starboard settee converts to form a double berth.  The settee on port is long enough to allow an adult to sleep.  The Galley is aft of the saloon on port with sink, ice box, and two burner alcohol stove.  The Companionway rises over the Engine Compartment with an access door unter the steps.  It is centered and divides the Galley and the Quarterberth entrance.  The Quarterberth is large enough for a couple to sleep comfortably. The "L" shaped Galley is on Port featuring a sink, 2-burner non-pressure alcohol stove-top plus good counter space and storage.  Finally, the Cockpit is long enough to accommodate your sailing crew, your guests and has the room for a lazy afternoon nap.  The IP27 is a very comfortable and safe pocket cruiser that seems much larger than 27' implies.
