Island Packet 38 .Canadian owner has been cruising French canals. Mast currently stored ashore in Port Napoleon, South of France where boat returns this coming Spring for re-rigging, service and storage ashore. New owners could take this opportunity to do the same or sail through the Med.
The Island Packet 38 features the well-proven Island Packet design concept that combines a modern full keel hull with handsome traditional styling, a versatile, easily managed rig, and an unusually spacious and livable interior. The moderate draft full keel gives the IP38 excellent capabilities for blue water passages as well as exploring coastal waters.
The teak deck was renewed in 2003
The underwater hull was sandblasted and Epoxy painted in 2010
Keel was sandblasted and Epoxy painted in 2016

The engine and gearbox is more or less new, it was installed in 2015 including a new prop. No of hours since then is about 200.
Aequitas was commissioned by her original owner to be set up for single-handed sailing and to cover long distances in comfort and safety. Her current owners have recently commissioned a comprehensive refit which was completed in the spring of 2016. Aequitas is ready for the next Oyster World Rally or blue water cruising.
