1992 Island Packet 29

New Bern, North Carolina


We know the price is lower on this boat than the others out there because the owner has done his cruising and the boat is priced to sell and it is ready to go cruising this year ....Just buy your own groceries and your favorite beverages and come on down.

Illusions is the perfect boat to single-hand but has plenty of room for two or even four. In our opinion, she is the largest 29 ft. boat you will ever set foot on. This Island Packet sailing vessel is roomy, spacious, comfortable, and is built for ocean sailing conditions. Illusions has completed a  single-handed 5 year cruise throughout the Eastern Caribbean. A new engine and fuel tank were installed in 2013. With the wind generator, solar panel, and five AGM batteries in the house bank, you can anchor in that deserted anchorage without worrying about running the engine to charge the batteries.

She is equipped to take you on that extended cruise you have always dreamed about! Please read the full specifications!
