About this Island Packet


"Knot Listening" is a nice example of the Island Packet 31. The IP31 was the first design by Bob Johnson that really catapulted Island Packet into the cruising sailboat market. The line carried on until 1989 with 262 hulls being laid. People were so impressed with the boat at the Annapolis boat show that Island Packet received seven orders there. If you are looking for a small cruiser that still has lots of room and comfort, the IP31 could be the boat for you.      



The forward cabin has a large V berth with removable filler cushion, hanging locker, several cabinets, shelves, and lockers. It has a private door to the head and another door to the salon allowing for privacy and convenience.

The large head features a nice vanity with Stainless Steel sink, cabinets over and under, linen cabinet, teak framed mirror, and a draining fiberglass shower pan. Pressure hot/cold water including a shower with teak seat and shower curtain.

The spacious main salon will comfortably seat a group for dining or with the table folded against the bulkhead makes an inviting "living room" atmosphere. Glass & bottle storage is revealed when the dining table is lowered. It has a single berth settee to port and a pull-out double berth is built into the L-shaped settee to starboard providing extra guest accommodations. A hanging locker is forward and the settees have cabinets and book shelves outboard with additional storage under and behind the cushions.

With a tip of the chart table and a pull on the folding pocket door, the unique quarter berth/nav station quickly becomes an enclosed cabin. This arrangement offers an open spacious interior by day and private cabin by night. A cabinet adjacent to the chart table houses the electrical panel.
