IP44s have completed tens of thousands of bluewater cruising miles and, as further proof of the design's success, won back-to-back victories in the 1991 and 1992 Caribbean 1500 Ocean Races.
These yachts serve as industry benchmarks for their quality of construction, sparkling performance, superior safety and seakeeping, ease of handling, and spacious accommodations. Their hull designs offer exceptional stability for shallow water gunkholing or worldwide voyaging along with performance capabilities proven by numerous victories in prestigious international offshore sailing events. In fact, Island Packet yachts were the first US-built sailboats to be certified to the rigorous CE / IMCI standards, with every current model approved at the highest level : Category A - Ocean.
Island Packet Yachts was featured in WorldsBestSailBoats, a collection of the finest designed and constructed sailboats in the world. This book dedicates an entire chapter to IPY.
