Island Packet IP 349
With the IP 349 model, Island Packet has returned to the Solent-style rig as standard, featuring a mainsail with a working jib and an optional lightweight 170% reacher or asymmetrical that mounts on the integral bow platform and furled with Harken systems. The working jib is fitted with a foredeck mounted jib track that is self-tending and improves performance with its close sheeting and self-vanging feature, while the large optional reacher or asymmetrical Genoa boost performance in light air or when off the wind. The fully battened mainsail is equipped with a low friction Battcar system and drops easily into a stack pack with an integral cover and lazy jack system. This rigging offers ease of use and versatility in varied wind or sea conditions and increased speed and maneuverability. (Of course, the cutter rig is available as an option.) All sheets lead to the cockpit primary winches at the helm for short-handed convenience. She has more than ample horsepower with the Yanmar 45 HP Common Rail diesel engine.
With classic good looks inside and out that blend the modern and traditional, spirited sailing performance, premium materials and the best warranty coverage in the industry, the new 349 continues Island Packet’s reputation as a benchmark for excellence.
