At least once a week my wife tells me how lucky we were to find our IP420 ;-) I love the boat, but the fact that my wife loves her - priceless...

Re: Island Packet Closing Doors?

I have not read through all 50 pages on this thread so... to try and answer the original question, I saw where on Valentines day, Feb 14th, a couple posted a video of them taking a tour of IP's factory...
"Island Packet Factory in Florida Tour for Valentines Day The Boat Life sailing adventure travel vlog"...
(I can't post links, cause "trust issues" so...) please google the above title to see the factory tour.
I cannot say definitively that this proves they have not closed, but it does prove they were in business until at least 10 days ago...

I am interested in IP's simply because they keep getting compared to the boat I actually want, the Caliber 38LRC... another yacht maker I am worried that may have closed its doors.

Hopefully you read the first page, which was written two years ago. At the time it was true that IP had closed their doors. A lot has happened since then, but you'll have to read the other 49 pages. It will take you less time than a few YouTube videos. ;-)

Re: Island Packet Closing Doors?

My Apologies to all, I got the date wrong. I am new to this forum.
Will be more careful next time.
