The Island Packet 320 combines the extensive building, sailing, and hands-on design experience that have made Island Packet Yachts one of America's Cruising Yacht Leaders. Integrating owner feedback representing millions of miles of practical cruising experience around the world, noted naval architect Bob Johnson - Island Packet's founder and CEO - has produced the 320, Island Packet's latest model in their award winning line of cruising sailboats.
The Full Foil keel continues as the foundation of the Island Packet concept, and its design and construction provide a host of advantages to the cruising sailor: moderate draft for access to a wider variety of cruising grounds, integral one piece construction for superior strength, a highly effective airfoil shape for excellent windward performance, and a modern hull form for enhanced speed and maneuverability.
In addition, the safety and seakeeping offered by this keel design provide both peace of mind and additional comfort underway. While Bob Johnson insists his designs are, "first and foremost excellent cruising yachts," the performance of these yachts has earned them an impressive number of victories in prestigious offshore races around the world.
The integrally molded transom platform and clever folding ladder design will be appreciated by swimmers and those boarding from a dock or dinghy, while the offshore security of the cockpit is ensured with a full transom configuration, meeting the safety concerns and needs of passagemakers. The yacht's graceful sheerline carries from the attractive stern forward to the bowsprit tip, where large dual anchor rollers and deck pipes allow convenient and rapid deployment or retrieval of ground tackle. Thoughtful details such as replaceable chafe strips for wear from shackles and chain rodes, oversized deck pipes to clear thimbles, and interior rode attachments reflect Island Packet's unwavering attention to the needs of the cruising sailor.
The well laid out deck with meticulous, molded detail offers wide side walkways, raised bulwarks forward, full length continuous cabin top handrails, double lifelines with welded rails fore and aft, and two-tone premium diamond pattern, slip-resistant deck surfaces, all designed to enhance security while moving about on deck. The cockpit has full length contoured seats that accommodate a large crew or invite stretching out. The helmsperson will enjoy excellent visibility from the separate raised seat with padded backrest.
The console mounted steering features Island Packet's trademark premium rack and pinion geared design, providing reliability, strength, and sensitivity unmatched by most other wheel steering installations. A steering wheel brake and single lever engine control are also provided on the console with room for owner - dealer installed instruments. An instrument panel is equipped with full analog gauges for all engine readouts. Cockpit convenience features abound with standard details such as a built-in insulated cooler two large seat lockers, a hand held personal shower (cold only) that easily reaches the stern platform, two stern rail seats, and a pedestal mounted folding table. Safety concerns are equally met with a pin-lock for securing companionway drop boards, robust padeyes for safety harness attachment, a raised companionway bridgedeck, large cockpit scupper drain capacity, and self-locking seat locker hatches with push button hasps that release from inside or out.
Island Packet's long term commitment to the cutter rig, paralleling that of experienced offshore sailors worldwide, is due to its versatility, ease of use, and excellent performance over a wide range of conditions. The integral bowsprit gives an extended base to the sailplan for added sail area and provides for optimum sheeting angles for closewinded performance.
The Island Packet 320 improves upon this sailplan with a freestanding staysail boom, simplifying control and adding performance to this highly effective sail. All sails are made of a premium high modulus fabric built by Sobstad, and both the 130 per cent genoa and the staysail include Harken roller furlers as standard equipment. The mainsail is equipped with a dual, single line reefing system or, optionally, with an in-mast furler. All primary sail control lines lead aft, allowing routine sail trim and setting - reefing activity to be done from the comfort and security of the cockpit. Thoughtful features such as self-tailing winches, color coded lines, rope clutches, traveler control lines and coaming line stowage bins make sailing easier and more pleasant than ever.
The forward cabin is the owner's suite, with a spacious and comfortable Pullman style berth off to the port side. The starboard side of the cabin is fitted with a cedar lined hanging locker, several cedar lined stowage bins, and a book shelf. Additional storage for personal goods or owner installed equipment is located under the bunk and accessed through either a louvered door on the bunk face or one of several drop-in lids under the cushion. Opening ports, large hatches, and a dorade-style vent add light and ventilation while the varnished teak and holly sole and the well placed reading lights add to the warmth and convenience of this stateroom.
A large wraparound counter top over a curved vanity surrounds the head, providing "captain chair" style seating. A bulkhead mounted shower unit and pull around curtain create a large shower area with the electric sump drain configured to work on either tack. Convenient accessories, a large vanity mirror, and additional underdeck storage cabinets round out the amenities.
The large central living area of the main salon is equally well suited for social gatherings, off-watch retreats, or comfortable dining. The two facing settees are both full length for seating a group or for stretching out, and the port settee pulls out to form a double bunk. Again, storage in this area is maximized by the central location of the tankage, with shelves, lockers, and drop-in bins abundant throughout designer fabric and harmonizing surfaces. Numerous ports, hatches and dorade vents provide abundant light and ventilation, making the boat comfortable in all kinds of weather.
The hinged dining table is secured against a bulkhead mounted bottle and glass rack, and is easily lowered and extended to create the large dining area. Beautiful select teak cabinetry and joiner work, varnished teak and holly sole, premium designer fabric fitted over thick cushions, well-placed light fixtures and handrails, numerous ports and hatches, and durable and easily maintained overhead and hull side surfaces make this salon and the entire interior attractive and practical in any season and weather.
An inviting and comfortable Pullman style berth is featured in the aft cabin. The real attraction here, however, is the clever nav table located at the forward end of this area. With the cabin door folded back and nav table either stored in the down position or raised to a horizontal working configuration, this aft cabin - nav area remains open to the salon for a very spacious feeling to the central cabin area.
The nav table easily accommodates common chart packs, which can be stored in the chart drawer provided, and a master electrical control panel (with added space for dealer - owner installed electronics) is conveniently located just outboard. When privacy is desired in the aft cabin, the bifold door may be closed and, with a flip up and over of the nav table to the vertical position, one has a fully enclosed cabin.
Cedar-lined stowage bins and hanging locker, plus an overhead hatch and opening port, round out these comfortable aft accomodations.
