We returned from 2 years in the Caribbean aboard our IP380 (38 foot IP). The Island Packet line was designed as a comfortable offshore cruiser. It carried us from Florida to Trinidad and back and lived up to this reputation. It is a well designed and built vessel, capable of taking you anywhere you desire.
[QUOTE=I am intrigued with you assessment of the IP's, though. We have one chartered for next month for 5 days, and from my initial experience with them they appear to be more geared toward comfortable coastal cruising as opposed to true offshore (i.e. 250+ miles). Can you clarify your thoughts for me?
I look forward to hearing from you after a SAFE and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend.
