Broker's Comments

Okay IP fans I know you are out there and I understand why! This sturdy little cruiser has so much to offer in twenty seven feet its hard to believe. No wonder IP has been added to the Worlds Best Sailboats! They are now one of the top American Builders and this lady will will provide years of enjoyment, whether coastal sailing or looking for a smaller seaworthy cruising boat. She is packed with gear...take a close look at the equipment. The only things I would add would be a dink and a Life raft and epirb, everything else is on board.
