Everything in boating is priced by the foot (slip fees, bottomcleaning, rigging, haul-outs), why not buy a boat that has huge interior space for its size. This is a blue water capable yacht in an efficient and affordable package.
This 1988 cutter-rigged Island Packet 27 is one of the most desirable pocket cruisers made due to large interior space and big boat features like wheel steering, hard toe rail, and cleat mid-ship for a spring line. This boat has a 10'6" beam that is carried all the way aft giving it huge interior space. The three-foot bow sprit makes the length over-all 30'. Headroom is 6'2". This IP 27 has a shallow 3' 8" draft, and full keel with a protected prop and rudder. She easily makes 6 knots under sail or motoring. Engine has only 310 hours. This vessel has just undergone a complete re-fit including rudder service and bottom paint it is turn-key and ready to go cruising and easily single handed. specs @iphomeport.com
