The Island Packet 35 was the first mid-thirties design and was introduced in 1989 as a second generation packet with the continuing but improved IP design philosophy of full keel with spade rudder, mast head cutter rig and shoal draft. The 35 had private aft and fore cabins and an improved hull, keel and rudder shape. She is very comfortable in all kinds of conditions with lots of storage and elbow room. Her cruising performance won her numerous competitive offshore cruising competitions.
ASPRI MERA has a boom furling main, bow thruster and many other upgrades that make her a very modern IP 35. She has been well cared for and maintained. With her many improvements, she is a MUST SEE!!!!
