General Information For The IP44
Island Packet 44
One of the largest and most luxurious Island Packets, the Island Packet 44 offers the very best of everything : exceptional safety and seakeeping, unmatched comfort and livability, superb craftsmanship and materials, and sparkling performance. IP44s have completed tens of thousands of bluewater cruising miles and, as further proof of the design's success, won back-to-back victories in the 1991 and 1992 Caribbean 1500 Ocean Races.
