REFIT: Island Packet 38

Vessel: Island Packet 38

Name: Evergreen
Owner: Philip & Sharon M.
Hailing Port: Harpswell, ME

This is our second refit with these owners. In both instances, the end goal has been to prepare their vessels for long range cruising and self-sufficiency. Skipping marinas and busy ports in search of solitude and hidden coves is always top priority. To that end, our team has recently updated and expanded this boat’s capacity for carrying water, fuel, and waste and has installed a new inverter-charger system that maximizes use of all available solar and wind power. In addition to new creature comforts and modern conveniences, our team has also improved overall vessel safety.
