Introduced in 1983, she has a traditional catboat-style design which features a sweeping sheerline, stubby bow, nearly vertical transom and a considerable 11'6" beam. The Island Packet 31 remained in production until 1989. In all, 265 boats were constructed. This is Hull #134.
Construction of the hull of the 31 is a solid laminate of fiberglass cloth and polyester resin. There is considerable use of molded fiberglass liners. This is a strong and cost effective method of production. A unique feature of all Island Packet boats is their method of deck construction. Instead of using balsa or foam core material, Island Packet use their own "Polycore" which is a mixture of resin fillers.
The accommodations and livability of the IP 31 may be matched but can't be beat on a 31' boat. The arrangement is fairly straightforward with V-berth forward followed by a starboard side head, opposing settees in the main saloon, port side galley, starboard side quarter berth and navigation station. The 11' 6" maximum beam and wide waterline beam allow accommodations to be pushed outboard providing plenty of livable space. The galley is U-shaped and is the size found on 35 to 38 footers. There is a clever arrangement for the quarter berth and navigation table which allows the chart table to be flipped up and a folding door to be extended to for an enclosed quarter berth cabin.
