The Island Packet 350 is the culmination of Island Packet’s mid-thirty designs continuing to refine IP’s hallmark hull, rudder and keel configuration as well as the cutter rig; but, adds a swim platform, athwartship aft cabin, improved sail handling equipment including the Hoyt Staysail Boom, and even replaces the earlier used teak handrails and other teak trim with easier to maintain stainless. The 350 is one of IP’s best sailing models and you can see and feel that in this safe, comfortable, and luxurious yacht. She handles and performs extremely well. Katydid is one of the best 350s I have seen. All manuals are onboard.

The Forward Cabin has a Pullman berth on the Starboard side with a hanging locker, bureau and dressing seat to port. There is additional storage under the berth and shelves on both hull sides. Also, there is plenty of dressing room and a private entrance to the head. Three opening ports and a large opening hatch provide excellent ventilation.
The large Head is to starboard aft of the forward cabin with entrances from both the saloon and the forward cabin. It is comfortable with good counter space, a commode (with a teak drop-down shower seat), sink, shower as well as an opening port and hatch plus excellent storage. The shower's grey water is pumped overboard.
The Main Saloon follows aft with facing settees, a table that unfolds to serve both settees and then folds up to store on the forward bulkhead when not in use creating a very large, open living space. The starboard settee pulls out making a true, comfy double berth. There are 4 opening ports and a large opening hatch in the saloon. With the fuel, water, and waste tanks under the cabin sole, there is tremendous storage under and behind the settees. A large built-in chart drawer is under the starboard settee. All Hanging Lockers are cedar-lined. A removable, custom ottoman with lots of internal storage provides flexible seating/lounging in the saloon.
The aft facing Nav Station is at the end of the saloon’s port settee with a nice sized desk with the electrical panel above. There is a small drawer for nav tools. The VHF, SSB, stereo, GPS and Nav Repeater are all within easy reach along the hull side as well as a fuel/water gauge, clock and barometer. The batteries are installed under the Nav Seat with additional switches and breakers easily accessible.
The “U” shaped Galley is on starboard behind the saloon with double sink, 2 burner propane stove and oven, large ice box and plenty of work room and storage including 2 drawers under the refrig, clever dinnerware storage above and a real pull out trash can. An opening port and hatch keeps the galley cool`.
Across from the galley on port and separated by the companionway is the Aft Cabin entrance. It has a big comfortable athwartship doubleberth, large dressing area with a bureau and hanging locker. Two opening ports and an opening hatch make the cabin comfortable.
The easily transversed Companionway separates the galley from the aft cabin.
The full accessed engine room is located underneath the companionway making engine work comfortable and easy.
