The 37 embodies all the great cruising features of the beloved 35.....and more. The pedestal steering is a huge improvement and still retains the safety of the rack and pinion and, there is just a little more room throughout the boat.
Her owners thoughtfully equipped her with....
Panacea gives you a wonderful way to enjoy the water, whether weekending or really cruising.

Starting forward is a comfortable V-berth with insert. There are two drawers underneath, two cubbies and a number of deep storage areas under the bed. There are two opening ports and an overhead to provide light and ventialtion.
Next aft to port is the head with stainless steel sink, hot and cold pressure water, separate shower seat and marine toilet with holding tank. Opposite the head to starboard is a cedar lined hanging locker.
The main salon is next aft with facing settees port and starboard with the port settee converting to a double bed. Behind and underneath these settees is huge amounts of storage.....always a plus for the cruiser or weekender alike. The saloon also boasts Island Packet's signature bulkhead mounted table that opens to accomodate guests for dinner.
At the aft end of the port settee is the aft facing nav table. At the aft end of the starboard settee is a drop down table that can be used as a handy place to serve cocktails or, additional prep area for the galley.
The galley is located to starboard of the companionway and is a safe, convenient area for food prep.
To port of the companionway is the entrance to the separate aft cabin.
Panacea is cutter rigged and has improved sail handling. The topping lift, out haul, primary and secondary reefing lines, main halyard and main sheet have all been led aft to additional sheet stoppers.
Panacea has full 110v and 12v Systems.
Island Packet's use of premium gel coat, solid glass hull and inorganic coring material in the deck add up to a boat that is tough and will stand the test of time.
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. Belowdecks, 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.
