2015 43' Island Packet SP Cruiser MK2

Clearwater, FL


Truly a one of a kind boat!  This nicely equipped SP MkII has less than 400 hours on the engine and shows the normal wear and tear of a two-year old boat!  Jump on this opportunity quickly; she won't last long.

Offering year-round boating comfort, trawler-like livability and motoring performance, simple and versatile sailing and legendary IP quality and value, the award winning Island Packet SP Cruiser Mark II is sure to deliver on all counts.  This very lightly used SP is in excellent condition, nicely equipped and ready for more adventures. 

Among many unique features are the SP Cruiser’s twin cockpits. One aft, perfect for the morning’s first cup of coffee, plus one forward—just the right place for a group to sit while cruising or at anchor on a beautiful day. Large CE Category A – Ocean rated opening windows in the enclosed deckhouse offer panoramic views and generous ventilation, while the center windshield panel hinges upward to allow socializing with family and friends in the forward cockpit while underway. 

Control of this vessel is made easy and comfortable with an adjustable dual bench helm seat, plus a large console forward of the wheel for engine controls and instrumentation. An autopilot gives you the ability to steer the boat from virtually any location aboard with a wireless handheld control. And with the dual-purpose bench seat from the aft cockpit moved into the salon and the L-shaped settee surrounding the folding table, this is a wonderful spot to have a meal or play a game of cards with everyone, regardless of what the weather is doing outside. 

A simplified, self-tending roller furling sloop rig has sail controls led to electric winches under the aft cockpit. The StoWinches™ allow both the main and jib to be trimmed in and out with just a push of a button.  Electric furling on the jib, main and reacher are all controlled from the aft cockpit.

The SP Cruiser MK II features a new hull form, providing increased hull speed and virtually level running under power, even at full throttle. The large fuel tank allows extended range with moderate fuel consumption when the winds die. Naturally, one can also augment powering performance with the sails, increasing speed and/or reducing fuel usage. 

Exterior teak is used only on several small step surfaces in order to minimize maintenance. The interior is a pleasant combination of designer laminate surfaces and varnished furniture quality hardwood. The deckhouse sole is varnished hardwoods, stateroom areas are fitted with Berber-style oatmeal color marine carpet, and the galley, nav/office and head are molded slip resistant surfaces. 

The interior accommodations of the SP Cruiser MK II are especially spacious. Below you’ll find the owner’s stateroom forward with a queen-sized island berth and two hanging lockers. Just aft and to starboard is a large head and separate stall shower with private access from either side. Aft is a guest stateroom with two single berths, a large hanging locker and an array of storage cabinets.  A kit is available from the factory to make this one large queen-sized double if desired. 

Whether you’re exploring coastal waterways or making extended passages, the award-winning SP Cruiser offers all climate comfort with efficient and stable motoring and easily managed sailing.
