General Information For The IP26MkII
Island Packet 26 Mark II
The Island Packet 26 Mk II takes the already popular design of the original Island Packet 26 and applies changes that will further refine the overall design concept that will be applied to every future Island Packet. It is easy to see why the concepts introduced with the IP26 Mk II remain popular even today when so many other sailboat design fads have come and gone.
