1988 Island Packet 27
Boat Type: Cruiser Address: Cocoa Beach, FL, US Price: $32,500


One of the nicest Pocket Cruisers available today.
This model boasts more space than other boats many feet longer. It was so popular in fact that the production on this model ran for 8 years and over 240 of them were built! It is still one of the hottest sellers on the market. It is capable of sleeping 6 people and as usual with all Island Packets has ample storage. Her shallow draft makes her a great gunk holer and her sturdy construction makes her comfortable and safe for passage making.
