1986 Island Packet Sloop

San Pedro, United States


With a full keel plus a centerboard, this boat can take you anywhere. She was cruised in the Bahamas for several years then transported to California by her current owners in 2010. She was repowered with a new Yanmar diesel 500 hours prior to purchase by her current owners, and still has less than 1100 hours on the meter. The interior is surprisingly spacious, with a v-berth, convertible dinette and a large quarter berth that can be completely enclosed for privacy.

A well built, stiff and balanced vessel that is easy to sail and is extremely popular on the East Coast, the 31' Island Packet is rarely found on the market  in CA. Check out the full specs then call for your appointment to view!
