The Island Packet 38 is a great cruising boat and "Marysol" is one of the best values on the market. She has been well maintained by her knowledgeable  owners and is waiting for you to sail her away to the Caribbean and beyond. Owners are moving on to new endeavors and have priced "Marysol" to sell.

She is currently berthed in a marina that allows live-aboards and the slip can be leased... What could be easier!
