There is so much to love about the versatile Island Packet SP Cruiser! From its powerful 110 HP engine that pushes the yacht at 8+ knots to its easy-to-manage sail plan with push-button trimming from the comfort of the pilot house. This smartly designed motor cruiser checks many boxes for the aspiring sail or power cruiser. 

Enjoy spacious and comfortable accommodations above and below the deck. On deck, you will find a covered aft cockpit, a convenient boarding platform, expansive side decks with stainless steel safety rails, an anchor platform, and an inviting forward cockpit with cushions and a table. The yacht’s interior features a pilot house/salon/interior helm with wrap-around windows, a functional galley, a dedicated desk/nav, a spacious owner’s cabin with a center line bed, a head with a separate shower, and a guest cabin with two beds. There is a lot of storage, and the access to the mechanical equipment is excellent!

Epsilon was built in Largo, FL, by Island Packet Yachts and shipped to California when new. Her current owners acquired her in 2020 in Long Beach, CA, and began equipping/upgrading her in preparation for their voyage from California to Florida with the Panama Posse. Epsilon departed Barra De Navidad in Mexico in February, passed through the Panama Canal in March, and arrived in Palm Coast, Florida in April. Along the way she visited several ports in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica.

Epsilon scheduled to go to St. Augustine for a bottom painting on June 19th. The Seller is removing personal items/gear from the boat.
