About The Island Packet 37 With Designer Notes

The Island Packet 37 offers sparkling performance, superior safety and seakeeping, ease of handling and spacious and livable accommodations. Island Packet Yachts' exclusive Full Foil Keel unifies the performance attributes of modern hull and foil designs. This design brings numerous benefits to the cruising sailor: superior protection from damage or fouling of both prop and rudder, an integral hull and keel structure for the strongest possible unified construction, a moderate draft with exceptional stability allowing shallow water gunkholing or worldwide voyaging, and spirited performance capabilities.

On deck, the well-engineered layout provides the safety and security needed in offshore conditions through full-length cabin top handrails, wide unobstructed side decks, and recessed foredeck with bulwarks. The integral bowsprit- anchor platform increases sail area, improves sheeting angles for enhanced performance, while providing ready stowage and immediate access for two anchors and their tackle.

The 8-foot long cockpit has full-length contoured seats offering plenty of room for both comfortable sitting or stretching out. A premium, console-mounted rack and pinion steering system provides the sensitive feel and rugged reliability available only from a direct-geared steering system. A rudder shaft control arm and interior mounting shelf are provided to facilitate the installation of an autopilot. The raised bridgedeck, lock-in companionway boards, bilge pump mount adjacent to the helm and large cockpit scuppers further ensure safety at sea. The standard cutter rig has furling systems on both the genoa and self-tending staysail. The skipper has a variety of sail combinations available that are easily adaptable to maximize comfort, safety and performance over a wide range of wind and sea conditions.

Below decks, convenient to both the cockpit and salon, yet out of companionway traffic, the galley is host to a number of design details that will make it the delight of the onboard chef. The main salon has a fold-away table, mounted on the main cabin bulkhead to provide an unobstructed salon area when the table is not needed. A pull-out panel in the L-shaped port settee converts this area into an extra double berth. The navigation station features a large hinged table with a generous stowage tray underneath.

The private forward stateroom features a wide, 6-foot 6-inch V-berth with generous storage space. The enclosed aft stateroom features a double berth and convenient upholstered dressing seat. The engine is conveniently located in an easily accessed compartment, complete with premium, lead-lined sound insulation and integrally molded drip pan.

Overhead interior hand rails, bulkhead hand grips and an easily maintained, slip-resistant cabin sole in the high-traffic areas helps provide sure-footed movement while underway. A harmonious blend of tasteful designer surfaces, premium fabrics, and meticulously hand-crafted, oiled teak joinerwork conveys a sense of style and comfort, while a host of thoughtful details, such as courtesy lights with a companionway switch, make the 37's interior exceptionally livable and practical.

Advanced construction technology utilizing custom blended resins, 100 per cent hand-laminated, premium knitted biaxial and triaxial fiberglass reinforcements and Island Packet's exclusive PolyClad hull gelcoat system combine to provide vastly superior resistance to impact, puncture resistance and osmotic blistering. Deck laminates are engineered for high strength with reduced weight utilizing PolyCore. An engineered interior grid system and reinforced fiberglass structure joins with the hull to form a unit structure of immense strength and durability.


Below decks is an attractive, functional layout. To starboard, the large wraparound galley with gourmet chef features and exceptional storage. The main salon spans the entire beam of the yacht to provide an open, spacious feel and create generous storage space behind and below the settees.

A foldaway table is mounted on the main cabin bulkhead to provide an unobstructed salon area when the table is not needed. When lowered, the large table with flip-over extension reveals a built-in bottle and glass storage rack, allowing gracious shipboard dining or entertaining.

A pull-out panel in the L-shaped port settee converts this area into a double extra berth. Several built-in cabinets, book racks and a hanging locker are also provided in the salon area.

All interior hanging lockers are cedar lined to ensure freshness. Generous tankage for fule and water is located below the sole, leaving other areas of the yacht open for storage, adding to the overall stability and minimizing trim changes with tank level. A deep bilge sump is easily accessed through the cabin sole panel.

The navigation station features a large hinged table with generous stowage tray underneath. Charts store in an easily accessible slide-out drawer opposite the navigation area.

Just forward of the main salon is the spacious head compartment. Included is a separate shower area with teak seat, bulkhead mounted shower and controls with overboard drain pump and an overhead track mounted curtain.

Aft cabin provides generous space, storage and NEW HANDCRAFTED MATTRESS COMPANY CUSTOM MATTRESS (2021).

The deluxe vanity features a wrap around counter with a polished stainless steel sink, with ample space for toiletries provided in two cabinets.

The private forward stateroom features a wide and long vee-berth with generous storage space provided by drawers, cabinets, bins, shelves and a large hanging locker. Private access to the head and shower from this stateroom adds further to its appeal. Access to the forepeak is provided at the forward end.  NEW HANDCRAFTED MATTRESS COMPANY CUSTOM MATTRESS (2021).
