Sold! The Rio Dulce of Guatemala is quickly becoming known for offering fantastic bargain prices on cruise-worthy sailboats -- and here you've found the current favorite!!  An original owner 38' Island Packet, clearly showing light use for its age, equipped with excellent and expensive cruising gear including: watermaker, solar power, wind power, diesel generator, dual 12v refrigeration, and on and on. 

Compare the Full Specifications with similar age/size sisters, and then book your tickets to Get Here First!  This 'Sell NOW" price is at least 25% less expensive than others -- why?  Owners/sellers are simply wishing to move on, having had their fun of living the cruising dream-life, and want to see their fine boat quickly into appreciative hands - yours, perhaps. 

Your ideal Island Packet is already conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean!  Now safely tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane season, same-day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it!  Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja).  Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do.  Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!

Proceed with the peace of mind fostered by a brokerage reputation built on professionalism and integrity.  SYS Brokerage only accepts yacht listings with realistic or bargain prices, listings that our brokers can represent truthfully as being worthwhile.
