BVI Yacht Sales Overview

Island Packet builds distinctive, full-keel boats that have almost a cult following. They’re solid glass, heavy cruisers that will get you there in safety and comfort.This sturdy, aft cockpit boat boasts good water and fuel tankage and a spacious two cabin, two head layout with perhaps the best master stateroom found on any boat under about 45′ today.

“Cajun Moon” is on the hard at Nanny Cay Marina. She has just completed all the repairs from her Hurricane Maria experience in Puerto Rico, and is in all good order. I personally went to Puerto Rico a few weeks ago to deliver this vessel to BVI and found all in good working order, a simple and easy to single hand boat with three roller furling sails, a good autopilot and a great layout for moving around easily onboard under sail or at moorings. She is fully equipped to take off on a cruise right now and is surprisingly fast both under power and sailing too.
