There is a reason PREAMBLE is priced at 75k.  A more perfect boat is going to cost 25-40k more.Seller has just completed about fifteen hundred nm, solo, Cape Coral FL to Annapolis, with no breakdowns or problems.  The bones are very good; she just needs some love and attention. She is 22 years old, but she is also the newest IP 37 in the world.  Good hull, good rig, serviceable diesel.  She has been throughout the Canadian maritimes, in most every port in New England, down to Key West, into the Gulf of Mexico.  

PREAMBLE is a Bermuda Race veteran. Eighth out of 64 boats in 2005.  

PREAMBLE is the newest Island Packet 37 with tremendous flexibility as a ocean passage maker or local cruising.  On the hard at Port Annapolis she is ready for her new owner to splash her again!  Priced to sell, owner has moved on.
