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.

From a review by surveyor Jack Hornor:
"Construction of the hull of the 31 is a solid laminate of fiberglass cloth and polyester resin. However, with proper engineering and adequate quality control during construction, this is a strong and cost effective method of production. Island Packet does a good job of both and I have yet to find any significant structural failure of an Island Packet hull that resulted from poor design or workmanship. 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. I have no information on how this compares in weight and strength to well documented and more traditional core materials but, again, I have yet to run across any serious delaminations or failures. Ballast is encapsulated iron and centerboards have a small amount of lead weight that seems more intended to keep the board down than have any significant effect on stability."
