Island Packet 27's have enjoyed immense popularity for good reason. They are well built, nicely finished and equipped, have spacious cockpits, attractive, bright, and roomy interiors, and are capable sailers. Cutter rigged, with a self-tacking staysail, they are easily single or short-handed. With accommodations for as many as six, the Island Packet 27 makes a wonderful family cruiser.
DAD'S RETREAT TOO has had three owners, all in the Boston, MA area. She appears to have had good care. Her current owner has decided to trim his fleet of boats. She's on the hard and may easily be inspected.
