island packet 35


I''ve never sailed an Island Packet so I can''t comment personally on how well they sail.

But I can share my observation that most Island Packets I see are under power, even in moderate wind conditions. Now it could be that their owners really wanted power boats, or it could be that they sail too slowly to get anywhere or even to enjoy... Beats me, I can only observe how they seem to be powerboats.
