Manufacturer Provided Description
The Island Packet 29 combines spirited performance with exceptional seakeeping and safety, spacious accommodations that invite living aboard, and quality that reflects the high standards of both owner and builder. A benchmark for quality cruising sailboats under 30 feet, the 29 has already proven itself capable and comfortable on thousands of miles of both trans-oceanic cruising and coastal gunkhole exploring. The interior boasts Island Packet’s legendary blend of detail, craftsmanship and livability, benefits usually associated only with larger craft. The interior blends tasteful surfaces, premium fabrics and hand-crafted oiled teak joinerwork to convey a sense of inviting warmth and comfort.

Easy access to the engine and its related equipment is provided with removable fore and aft covers. Dual fuel filters with a water separator, dual fuel pumps, and a number of other engine system details are engineered to provide years of trouble-free service. Topside, the 29 provides wide, unobstructed side decks and continuous cabin top handrails, a recessed foredeck with protective bulwarks, and a teak-capped bowsprit platform with anchor rollers and deck pipes. Wheel steering is provided by a direct geared rack and pinion system. Recesses and bins in the cockpit coamings keep winch handles and all sail control lines neatly organized. Under sail, the 29 is well-behaved and a delightful performer in a wide
