Island Packet Motorsailer spotted

Saw this boat yesterday at my marina, it still has a UPC sticker on the anchor, thought I would share.

Great looking boat but why the UPC sticker in that spot on the anchor?

I think the anchor and boat are brand new, I guess they installed the anchor and forgot to remove the UPC sticker.

It might be on my end but the pics did not come out. If it is the boat I am thinking about, those are pretty cool boats. Island Packet needed to make a motorsailer because their sailboats don't sail that well.....unless it is blowing 20+ knots....

I cant see the pics either, but I googled Island Packet. Nice boats! Interesting swim platform extension with the rudder mounted all the way aft on it.

Fairly pricey through. Well over 1/2mil for a new one. One two many zeroes for me.

Did a rewire on one of those once. It was struck by lightning.
