|The Island Packet 37 offers sparkling performance, superior safety and seakeeping, ease of handling and spacious and liveable accommodations, and this 1996 version is now for sale.
Island Packet Yachts' exclusive Full Foil Keel unifies the performance attributes of modern hull and foil designs. This design brings numerous benefits to the cruising sailor: superior protection from damage or fouling of both prop and rudder, an integral hull and keel structure for the strongest possible unified construction, a moderate draft with exceptional stability allowing shallow water gunholing or worldwide voyaging, and spirited performance capabilities.
On deck, the well-engineered layout provides the safety and security needed in offshore conditions through full-length cabin top handrails, wide unobstructed side decks, and recessed foredeck with bulwarks. The integral bowsprit-anchor platform increases sail area, improves sheeting angles for enhanced performance, while providing ready stowage and immediate access for two anchors and their tackle.
The 8-foot long cockpit has full-length contoured seats offering plenty of room for both comfortably sitting or stretching out.
A premium, console-mounted rack and pinion steering system provides the sensitive feel and rugged reliability available only from a direct-geared steering system. A rudder shaft control arm and interior mounting shelf are provided to facilitate the installation of an autopilot.
The raised bridgedeck, lock-in companionway boards, bilge pump mount adjacent to the helm and large cockpit scuppers further ensure safety at sea. The standard cutter rig has furling systems on both the genoa and self-tending staysail. The skipper has a variety of sail combinations available that are easily adaptable to maximize comfort, safety and performance over a wide range of wind and sea conditions.
Belowdecks, convenient to both the cockpit and salon, yet out of companionway traffic, the galley is host to a number of design details that will make it the delight of the onboard chef.
The main salon has a fold-away table, mounted on the main cabin bulkhead to provide an unobstructed salon area when the table is not needed. A pull-out panel in the L-shaped port settee converts this area into an extra double berth.
The navigation station features a large hinged table with a generous stowage tray underneath.
The private forward stateroom features a wide, 6-foot 6-inch V-berth with generous storage space. The enclosed aft stateroom features a double berth and convenient upholstered dressing seat.
The engine is conveniently located in an easily accessed compartment, complete with premium, lead-lined sound insulation and integrally moulded drip pan.
Overhead interior hand rails, bulkhead hand grips and an easily maintained, slip-resistant cabin sole in the high-traffic areas helps provide sure-footed movement while underway.
A harmonious blend of tasteful designer surfaces, premium fabrics, and meticulously hand-crafted, oiled teak joinery work conveys a sense of style and comfort, while a host of thoughtful details, such as courtesy lights with a companionway switch, make the 37's interior exceptionally liveable and practical.
Advanced construction technology utilizing custom blended resins, 100 per cent hand-laminated, premium knitted biaxial and tri axial fiberglass reinforcements and Island Packet's exclusive PolyClad hull gelcoat system combine to provide vastly superior resistance to impact, puncture resistance and osmotic blistering. Deck laminates are engineered for high strength with reduced weight utilizing PolyCore. An engineered interior grid system and reinforced fiberglass structure joins with the hull to form a unit structure of immense strength and durability.
