Island Packet SP Cruiser MK2

  • £198,000 inc Vat
  • Ardrossan, United Kingdom


    The Island Packet SP Cruiser is 41 feet, 1 inch LOA and has an extended swim-step stern. It is a substantial extra amount of hull and DWL. The keel is the trademark IP full keel but with this model you have the option of having a skeg-hung rudder well aft or the standard IP semi-balanced rudder sitting on a gudgeon strut. The skeg-hung rudder is as far aft as it can be 

    Where this hull form differs from the typical "sailing yacht" is that the broad transom intersects the waterplane, i.e. there is no overhang aft. . With a 110-horsepower engine this boat will motor at 8-plus knots all day.

    There are two cockpits in this design. The aft cockpit is the traditional type with a transom door, and the housetop covers the entire cockpit for protection. The forward cockpit is cut into the middle of the forward cabin trunk with the coaming extending forward of the mast. You do your steering from the pilothouse or you use your autopilot control. There is a large hatch in the forward end of the pilothouse and there is also a large opening central window  All lines are led aft to a single electric winch.

    The layout is clever with two staterooms. The aft stateroom extends under the sole of the pilothouse to starboard. The forward stateroom features a centreline double berth. The galley is designed to use the space under where the forward cockpit intrudes into the interior volume. The "saloon" is the pilothouse  The pilothouse is where you want to spend most of your time.

    The rig is very simple and short in keeping with motorsailer proportions and bow platform. The standard jib is self-tacking on a Hoyt boom. The mainsail is furled inside the mast.

    There is a lot of comfort in this design if you spend more time motoring than you do sailing

    Manufacturer Provided Description

    Among many unique features are the SP Cruisers twin cockpits. One aft, perfect for the  first cup of coffee of the morning, plus one forward, just the right place for a group to sit while cruising or at anchor on a beautiful day. Large CE Category A – Ocean rated opening windows in the enclosed deckhouse offer panoramic views, while the centre windshield panel hinges upward to allow socializing with family and friends in the forward cockpit.

    Control of this vessel is made easy and comfortable with dual swivel helm and companion chairs plus a large console forward of the wheel for engine controls and instrumentation. An optional autopilot gives you the ability to steer the boat from virtually any location aboard with a wireless handheld control. And with the forward chairs and L-shaped settee surrounding the folding table, this is a wonderful spot to have a meal or play a game of cards, regardless of what the weather is doing outside.

    A simplified, self-tending roller furling sloop rig has sail controls led to an electric winch in the aft cockpit. A pair of Lewmar CW800-Winches, allowing the main and jib to be trimmed with push button controls at both the helm and aft cockpit. The SP Cruiser MK 2 features a new hull form, providing increased hull speed and virtually level running under power, even at full throttle. The large fuel tank allows extended range with moderate fuel consumption when the winds die. Naturally, one can also augment powering performance with the sails, increasing speed and/or reducing fuel usage.

    Exterior teak is used only on several small step surfaces in order to minimize maintenance. The interior is a pleasant combination of designer laminate surfaces and varnished furniture quality hardwood. The deckhouse sole is varnished hardwoods, stateroom areas are fitted with Berber-style oatmeal color marine carpet, and the galley, nav/office and head are molded slip resistant surfaces.

    The interior accommodations of the SP Cruiser MK 2 are especially spacious. Below you will find the owner stateroom forward with a double island berth and two hanging lockers. Just aft and to starboard is a large head and separate stall shower with private access from either side. Aft is a guest stateroom with two single berths, a large hanging locker and an array of storage cabinets.
