General Information For The IP38
Island Packet 38
The Island Packet 38 features the well-proven and highly acclaimed Island Packet design concept that combines a modern full keel hull with handsome traditional styling, a versatile, easily managed rig, and an unusually spacious and livable interior. The moderate draft full keel or optional shoal keel with centerboard, gives the IP38 excellent capabilities for blue water passages as well as exploring shallow coastal waters.
