Here's the Island Packet SP Cruiser - a boat you're going to love or loathe


The new Island Packet SP Cruiser has been causing a stir round ours. You can see why from this publicity shot. Here’s a boat that cocks a snook (or something like that) at the conventional notions of form over function.

I checked out the SP Cruiser at the boat show in London. The SP stands for Sail/Power, and apparently it’s designed to appeal to motorboaters who want a bit of sail and sailors who aren’t entirely ready to cross to The Dark Side.

A model or a minger – what d’you reckon? You can send your view by clicking the comments link below.
