General Information For The IP27
Island Packet 27
The Island Packet 27 features the highly successful Island Packet design concept that combines a modern full keel with handsome traditional styling, a versatile, easily managed rig, and an unusually spacious interior. The moderate draft full keel or optional shoal keel with centerboard give the IP27 capability for bluewater passages as well as exploring shallow coastal waters.
