The interior of the Island Packet 38 features a unique tri-cabin layout with large forward and aft staterooms and a spacious central salon.

Next aft is the spacious MASTER STATEROOM with large pullman-style double berth offset to starboard, three spacious storage compartments under the berth along with six cedar lined drawers, large cedar-lined hanging locker and cabinets to port. This stateroom is well ventilated with four opening ports and an overhead hatch. It also has a dedicated MarineAir 9,000 Btu air conditioner.

Next aft is the inviting MAIN SALON which spans the beam of the yacht imparting a spacious feeling while also allowing for generous storage spaces. Island Packet's signature bulkhead mounted fold-up dining table retracts to allow for an unobstructed socializing area. When the table is lowered, a built-in liquor cabinet and glass storage rack is revealed. The table folds open athwart ship for additional dining area if needed. To starboard is an L-shaped settee that converts to a double berth. There is also a slide-out chart storage drawer under the starboard settee. To port is a straight settee. There are cabinets and bookracks outboard and an incredible amount of storage beneath and behind both settees.

Just forward of the galley on the starboard side is the aft facing NAVIGATION STATION with full size, hinged nav table with storage compartment underneath. Adjacent are the ship's AC & DC electrical panels and electronics.

Across from the nav station is the centrally located AFT HEAD with sink, vanity, shower with wrap-around curtain, full length mirror and marine toilet. The shower is bulkhead mounted and has a removable teak seat. This head has a private entrance from the aft cabin as well as the main salon.

To starboard of the companionway is the large U-shaped GALLEY with deep double sinks, gimballed 2-burner LPG stove with oven, refrigerator/freezer, deluxe teak dish racks and cutlery drawers. There are abundant storage compartments, a hideaway trash bin, and plenty of counter space.
