island packet 35
The IP35 is a good boat. She was designed to give you a lot of room in the "basement" - more room than a 35'' boat can give without sacrificing performance. They are, IMO, too much of a compromise on the performance side. I am a "used to race" cruiser and I understand the difficulty in finding the compromise between budget, comfort and performance. I am not looking for high performance, but I do want to be the boat that slips past others rather than the boat that is always being passed. I went with a Bristol. If you get the IP - I''ll be going by you all the time. If you don''t mind, I don''t mind. Get it ?
