Island Packet's SP Cruiser won two U.S. awards for innovation. Selected from numerous sailboat designs it received both SAIL magazine’s “Editor’s Choice Award for Innovation” and the National Marine Manufacturers Association “Innovation Award for Sailboats”. Like many motorsailers, the SP Cruiser’s enclosed deckhouse offers year round cruising comfort, and a self tending sailplan and powerful engine allow it to travel great distances with easy control and modest fuel consumption.
With twin cockpits (one aft and one forward of the deckhouse) and an interior arrangement that provides exceptional livability in this size range, the SP Cruiser is unique. Most notable, however, is the sail handling system that makes it the first “popular sized” sailboat with the availability of “push button” sail controls. The new StoWinch™ sheeting system, a joint development effort between Lewmar, Inc. and Island Packet Yachts, brings a new level of convenience to sailing and ultimately opens the door to fully automated sailing. Developed specifically for the SP Cruiser, the new system appeals not only to cruisers looking to stay in sailing longer, but also to new sailors wishing for simplified sail controls and increased enjoyment of sailing in general.
The SP Cruiser is a very well thought out and comfortable motorsailer. She has a large pilothouse with a wonderful dining, lounging and entertaining area. A few steps below is a spacious galley, large master stateroom fwd, guest cabin aft, head with separate shower and amazing storage.
And the SP Cruiser has a unique feature - twin cockpits. One aft, perfect for the morning’s first cup of coffee, plus one forward—just the right place for a group to sit while cruising or at anchor on a beautiful day.
The pilothouse has large CE Category A – Ocean rated windows providing panoramic views. Ideal while underway or at rest. All the side and rear windows slide open and there is a large hatch overhead for ventilation. There are 3 large windows forward; the center window hinges upward to allow socializing with family and friends in the forward cockpit as well as increased ventilation.
Control of this vessel is made easy and comfortable with dual swivel helm and companion chairs plus a large console forward of the wheel for engine controls and instrumentation. The remote control autopilot gives you the ability to steer the boat from virtually any location aboard with a wireless handheld control.
There is an L-shaped settee with both a custom smaller table and the standard larger dining table which has 2 leaves that fold out. Just swivel the 2 chairs around to the table and you have a wonderful spot to have a meal or relax… regardless of what the weather is doing outside.
The floor is varnished teak and holly. There are numerous lights overhead. Storage is found under the settee and in shelves outboard.
The interior accommodations of the SP Cruiser are especially spacious. From the pilothouse, there are just 3 easy steps to the galley, desk/work area, master and guest cabins and head. Numerous opening ports and a large hatch forward provide lots of natural light and ventilation. The flooring in the galley, nav/desk and head are very practical molded slip resistant surfaces. The master stateroom forward and the aft cabin are fitted with Berber-style tan marine carpet.
Starting forward is the master stateroom with a very comfortable centerline berth, great headroom and a lot of room to move around. The large hatch overhead and opening ports provide good ventilation. There are numerous lights throughout – some are dimmer lights. Storage is tremendous – typical in an Island Packet. The foot end of the berth lifts up to a very large storage area, ideal for those large bulky items. Under this is a large drawer. Outboard additional storage is found on either side with shelves and hanging lockers. Overhead, the hatch is fitted with a screen and privacy shade. You will definitely be very comfortable in this stateroom.
Head with Separate Shower
Just aft of the master stateroom and to starboard is the head with a separate stall shower. There is private access from the master stateroom and a 2nd door from the main area. There is an opening port in the head for ventilation. The shower has a comfortable seat and there is a curtain that separates this area from the head.
On the starboard side adjacent to the galley is a separate work area. with a desk and pull out seating. This area can be used as an office, a nav or even a vanity. The desk opens and has a storage tray. Outboard is an enclosed shelf and an open one above it. Overhead is a light and outboard is an opening port.
Conveniently located a few steps down from the pilothouse and dining area is thee galley. It is inline on the port side and runs from the steps all the way to the master cabin. Typical of an Island Packet there is tremendous practical storage space found throughout the galley and no shortage of counter space. Two large fridge compartments are very easy to access just under the counter. One a fridge and the other a freezer with dual Frigoboat systems and individual digital controls. Inboard on the centreline the galley continues with twin sinks and so much counter space accessible from both sides.
Aft to starboard is a guest stateroom with two good sized single berths. There is a large hanging locker, several storage cabinets and a long outboard shelf. Also 2 opening ports for additional light and ventilation.
In the pilothouse there is a large console forward of the wheel for engine controls and all the instruments. There is a chart drawer outboard and a large, flat console area forward of the passenger seat for navigation activities. There are 2 adjustable individual helm and passenger seats that can swivel to face the table and settee when socializing or dining.
