1981 Island Packet 26 MK1 Cutter Sailboat in Longboat Key, Florida

Stock #140156

Ready to sail and fully equipped. This Island Packet has a Yanmar inboard diesel engine, roller furled jib and everything needed to start your sailing adventure.

Originally called simply Island Packet and built by Traditional Watercraft, a company founded by Bob Johnson. Johnson had purchased the original tooling for the Bombay Express 26.

A significantly modified version, the Island Packet MKII, (later Island Packet 26 MKII) was introduced in 1982 when Bob Johnson and partners formed Island Packet Yachts.

Island Packet has been well recognized for its quality. It was the first U.S. sailboat builder (and still one of too few) to be certified under the strict new CE certification standards.

The International Marine Certification Institute has awarded the entire range of Island Packet models its highest rating - Category-A, Ocean, meaning the boats qualify for 'unlimited offshore use.'

It is an extremely thorough process that examines not only design and engineering but also construction and equipment details.
