Blue Jacket 40 Debut

The Blue Jacket 40 is the result of a collaboration between Tim Jackett, designer for many years at Tartan Yachts, and Bob Johnson, chief designer at Island Packet Yachts. This new performance cruising boat, billed as the first in a series, is being built by Island Packet at its yard in Florida. It made its world debut at the Strictly Sail Chicago boat show, which ran from January 23 through 27, 2013.
