island packet 35

Are you trolling or do you want a serious answer?

In my mind these are over priced, over hyped liveaboards. If you enjoy sailing these are not your boats. If you are looking for a boat that sails well in a wide range of wind speeds these are not you not your boat. If you are looking for a boat that is easy to handle, keep looking. If you want a boat that will handle a chop with alacrity, your in the wrong pew. If you have your heart set on a boat that won''t roll you you to death....well you get my point. Essentially these are motor sailors for people who want a powerboat with a mast. I know that some people really love these boats,but these boats have never made a bit of sense to me.
