    Manufacturer Provided Description

    The Island Packet 37 offers sparkling performance, superior safety and seakeeping, ease of handling and spacious and livable accommodations. 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 gunkholing 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 comfortable 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 rig has furling systems on both the genoa and 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.

    Construction - 100% hand-laid fiberglass construction throughout with ISO - NPG type gelcoat for maximum durability, plus Island Packet's exclusive PolyClad bottom gelcoat system with 10-year limited warranty. Gelcoat applied using premium high-volume, low-pressure application equipment for exceptional finish quality, reduced airborne emissions.  All structural laminates and reinforcements designed to ABS standards - Hull molded in one piece utilizing a proprietary pressure fed application system w- extra strong triaxial glass, unified w- an engineered molded interior grid structure.  

    Deck laminate cored w- advanced PolyCore - a proprietary microsphere & resin matrix that has maximum resistance to rot & delamination.  Deck attached to integrally molded hull flange w- bolts, lock nuts, & urethane adhesive sealant.


    As you step down a few companionway steps, the feeling is open and light and with a deep breath you will notice that "Puffin"smells good! Just as described by Island Packet above, Puffin is clean and sparking just like she left the factory.  Fiberglass is shiny, floors with sparkling teak and she almost has that "new boat smell"!

    Broker's Comments

    The current owner's of the Island Packet 37 are very meticulous and their desire is to present a yacht with everything in excellent condition.  Just recently they have stripped all the exterior teak, sanded and applied 6 coats of Cetol Natural Teak and Clear. Removed and polished SS rub rails.  Added Rub Strikes where lines meet wood.  Repacked turnbuckles. Polished all SS and Aluminum. Polished and waxed entire boat! Made covers for all exterior teak handholds, fenders and winches. Replaced the windshield in the dodger with 40 gauge O'Sea Clear Vinyl Sailrite #103726. It is so clear, it looks like actual glass!

    This is an unbelievably clean and tidy yacht ready for a new owner to enjoy!  Call today!
