Designer Comments from Tim Jackett (former designer of C&C and Tartan):

“The Blue Jacket project offered me a unique opportunity to design the first of a new series of performance racer/cruisers for Island Packet Yachts, one of North America’s most respected sailboat builders. Additionally, Island Packet CEO, owner and designer Bob Johnson agreed to collaborate on the design, bringing his depth of experience designing offshore cruising yachts to the overall design effort. In total, our combined design careers have seen the launch of over 5,000 sailing yachts,earned over 30 industry awards and represent a range of experience that would be difficult to match anywhere.”

Sail Florida Free

Massey Yacht Sales is located only 20 minutes from the manufacturing facility and would enjoy the opportunity to host a tour of the plant for you. After completing a factory tour, Ed Massey said, "The Blue Jacket is one of the prettiest boats I have ever seen. With the performance design of Tim Jackett and the build quality of Bob Johnson and Island Packet, we no doubt have a true American performance cruiser of the highest quality".

Ed was so impressed he put together a package that will allow the owners of Blue Jackets to visit the boat while under construction, stay at one of the finest resort hotels in Florida and sail Florida free for the first 3 months of ownership.
