+ In A Class By Itself™

  • Bob Johnson’s evolutionary approach to the design of his line has worked well for him. With its nipped transom profile and big swim step, the 370 is as up-to-date a full keeler as I think you will find.
    Sailing Magazine2004 Review
    Island Packets have proven to be strong, stable and sea kindly. They thrive offshore in difficult conditions and often out perform their inshore handicaps. Performance has also been outstanding, with more events having been won by Island Packets than by boats from any other builder.
