The 1997 35 Island Packet Cat is a versatile catamaran designed for adventure and comfort. Its spacious deck layout and well-appointed interior offer ample room for relaxation. The signature DeltaPod under the midsection/foredeck decreases discomfort from wave impacts, provides a great deal of storage not found on other cats of this size, and lowers the main cabin to provide more headroom. These simple changes add up in major ways to increase comfort while cruising or entertaining.

Complete with full electronics including autopilot, chart plotter, radar, AWI, depth and speed. This is a long time knowledgeable-owner yacht, maintained in yacht condition with equipment for offshore cruising and island hopping with autonomy and security. Additionally, it’s great for a weekend cottage at the docks, out exploring lakes, or taking on the great loop. This boat has cruised the eastern seaboard and ventured all the way to the west coast of Michigan. ICW friendly and fully equipped, she’s turnkey ready for her next adventure.

Leeway sleeps six in two double staterooms with the saloon dinette converting to a double bed. The queen berth in the master features an ensuite head with shower and 10″ bathtub. Additionally, it has a pocket door that converts the starboard hull into your own private suite. The port cabin almost mirrors the starboard master, but the head also doubles as the day head. The interior reflects ash trim and veneered bulkheads. The U-shaped galley keeps the chef in the action, whether it be entertaining or sailing. The saloon features an L shaped seating area with the dinette, and the navigation station is across from the galley.
