Island Packet 27 Spirited Performance and Exceptional Livability...
"The Island Packet 27 features the highly successful Island Packet design concept that combines a modern full keel with handsome traditional styling, a versatile, easy managed rig, and an unusually spacious and livable interior. The modern full keel design, unique to the Island Packet line, provides the benefits of spirited, powerful performance comparable to deeper fin keel designs, with added advantages of "hand-off" tacking and fingertip steering control, and superior sea-keeping and safety. And the moderate draft full keel gives the full capability for blue water passages as well as exploring shallow coastal waters.
On deck, the Island Packet 27 features a wide bowsprit anchor platform, raised bulwarks, premium coarse diamond nonskid, full length cabin top hand rails, and double bow and stern rails with double lifelines for secure deck work. The roomy cockpit features contoured seats with deep coaming backrests, a comfortable helmsman's seat, large seat locker and loose gear tray, cockpit icebox, water tight engine access hatch and rack and pinon geared wheel steering for precise feel and utmost reliability." ~ Island Packet 27 Brochure

The main salon offers 6'2" headroom with a 6'4" settee to port and a 6'6" settee to starboard, which converts to a double. Bulkhead mounted table folds up out of the way when not in use. Leaf extension provides seating for 4-6 at mealtime. Cabin ports open to create a nice cross breeze when at anchor. Storage is below settees, behind the settee setbacks, and on fiddled shelves along the hull-sides to port and starboard.
Galley is conveniently located aft, just to port of the companionway. Single basin stainless sink provides hot and cold pressurized fresh water, next to a 2-burner alcohol stove. Formica extension flips up for additional counter space. Opening cabin port above the stove allows for ventilation while cooking. Storage is in a louvered cabinet below the stove, a trash bin below the sink, behind hullside sliders, and in drawers and cubbies along the aft bulkhead. Ice box is below the counter in the corner.
Aft, to starboard of the companionway is a comfortable quarter berth.
