With only 35 ever built! Island Packet 44! A proven design masterpiece! Unparalleled craftsmanship, 100% hand-laid thick fiberglass. Full Keel. Built from 1991-1995. Island Packet designer and naval architect Robert K. Johnson has a long history of success. From missile design with McDonnell-Douglas. Plant supervisor for Irwin Yachts. Senior designer for Endeavor Yachts. To his own brainchild “Island Packet.” Along the way, developing a strong line of experience in building safe and reliable ‘world cruisers’ with exceptional performance in their class. Thus, laying claim to many industry awards over the years, such as Cruising World Magazines “Boat of the Year” in 1992.
Three “Best Boat” awards from Sail Magazine and an
“Industry Award for Leadership.” While completing tens of thousands of blue-water cruising miles and, as further proof of the design's success, IP 44 won back-to-back victories in the Caribbean 1500 Ocean Races. Her exclusive Full Foil Keel unified the performance of the modern hull and foil designs with the superior seakeeping and safety of the traditional long keel. A design that also adds a layer of protection for both the rudder and prop from damage or fouling.
A note from the seller:
In San Francisco Bay, where summer sailing is always exciting. Reaching 25+ knt winds, being a heavy boat at nearly 28,000 LBS, with a reef in and well balanced sails, she was rock solid and almost steered herself through the waves. In moderate winds, with the genoa flying, she sails to hull speed. We love this boat, unfortunately, time has its way with us all. Our goal is to find her a new home, where she will be loved by her new owners just as much as we loved her.
