The interior is bright and airy owing to the yacht's eleven polished stainless steel opening ports with safety glass and screens; three Dorade-type deck ventilators with screens; and five Lewmar (acrylic and aluminum) deck hatches (master cabin, saloon, head, aft cabin and galley). Below decks, there is a large forepeak, accessible from the master cabin through louvered doors, featuring a center divider with attachments and stowage port and starboard for anchor rodes; overhead deckpipes; a drain to the bilge and a light. The master cabin has a centerline double Island Berth with full length teak shelves outboard and large stowage lockers under. The foot of the bed lifts on gas assisted support struts to reveal a large blanket tray. There are drawers under the bed as well as two bureaus with shelves over, and a generous cedar-lined hanging locker with a shelf over. The bed has been equipped with a custom-made island berth mattress. Privacy doors lead to the saloon and head compartment.
The head is teak-trimmed with a large vanity with linen cabinet, mirror, polished stainless steel sink and shower with hot/cold pressure water. Fold away acrylic shower doors enclose the separate shower area with its fold down teak shower seat and electric drain pump. The head has an opening port and large overhead hatch, storage cabinets, toothbrush holder with cup, toilet paper holder, full length mirror and integral recessed lighting.
The spacious main saloon has a pull-out double settee berth to port and single settee berth to starboard, with teak cabinets and bookshelves outboard of both settees. There are large stowage areas beneath and behind each settee. Forward of the starboard settee there is a cedar lined hanging locker with a shelf over; forward of the port settee Island Packet's signature deluxe drop-leaf table folds against a bulkhead rack(with bottle stowage behind) providing an unobstructed 4' wide varnished teak and holly sole.
At the aft end of the port settee is the Nav Station with table and tray storage under, drawer, nav light, and a generous nav/electronics cabinet with master AC/DC panels plus space for a variety of owner installed equipment.
Across to starboard is the large wrap-around galley with high pressure laminate surfaces, flip up counter extension, roll-away trash bin, teak paper towel holder, and towel and soap racks. All counter edges have teak sea rails. There are large storage areas above and below the counter, a storage drawer, cabinet, dry storage locker and a large drawer beneath the refrigerator as well as a cabinet allowing access to the back side of cockpit instruments. Galley equipment includes a Frigoboat F50 Refrigerator/Freezer, Digital thermostat and controls (2016); gimballed three-burner Force 10 LPG stove with oven (stainless steel deluxe safety type, sealed burner top, lift off cover; a pot and pan locker under and stainless steel guard rail with harness hooks).The vessel is well served when voyaging by deep double stainless steel sinks with deluxe polished finish, hot and cold pressure water tap, a Galley faucet (2019), manual pump and Seagull Water Filter. Additionally, the galley has a 115Vac microwave oven.
The aft cabin has a privacy door to the main cabin and a large athwartship double berth with a full length teak shelf outboard, integral overhead reading lights and stowage lockers under. Upon entering the aft cabin dressing area, one faces a slide out vanity sink with hot and cold pressure water and drain, located between a generous cedar-lined hanging locker with a shelf over (aft) and a bureau with shelf over (forward); full length mirror, two opening ports and overhead hatch.
At the base of the companionway ladder is a molded sole area with slip-resistant surface which extends into the nav and galley areas to provide both secure footing and easy maintenance. Added convenience is provided by a lift-out central teak grate with dust pan and lighted bilge access below; interior courtesy lights with a switch located at the companionway entrance; an interior lock for the sliding companionway hatch; and stowage for the companionway teak drop-boards.
Primary access to the engine is behind the companionway ladder; however the entire drive train is made available for easy access by removing panels surrounding the engine compartment. The electric fuel pump and fuel filter are mounted inside the starboard side access door. The engine room has an automatic fire protection system installed. There are four fire extinguishers and two carbon monoxide monitors positioned throughout the interior of the boat.
The design concept behind Island Packet yachts is based on years of producing Full Foil Keel boats with moderate draft allowing 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, maneuverability, comfort and seakeeping while underway.
The deck, with meticulously molded detail, offers wide walkways, raised bulwarks forward, full length continuous stainless steel cabin top handrails, double lifelines with welded rails fore and aft, and two tone premium diamond pattern slip resistant surfaces all designed to enhance safety and security while moving about on deck. Lifeline gates port and starboard feature teak step plates.
The cockpit with a custom-built teak cockpit grate has full length contoured seats that accommodate a large crew or invite stretching out. Conveniences include a built-in insulated beverage locker, two large seat lockers with gas support struts, two stern rail seats and a pedestal mounted folding table. The console mounted steering features Island Packet's trademark rack and pinion geared design with a proven combination of reliability, strength and sensitivity. A steering wheel brake and single lever engine control lever are provided on the pedestal with additional room provided for the bow thruster toggle switch and an instrument pod. Excellent visibility for the helmsperson is provided by a raised seat with padded backrest. The engine panel itself is within easy reach of the helm and provides full analog gauges for all readouts.
The cockpit area has a dodger forward with side grab bars,dodger covers for the eisenglas windows; a connector and bimini overhead and a full cockpit enclosure with sun screens. At the aft pushpit comfortable port and starboard stern rail seats with padded cushions provide forward-facing seating for crew while underway. A stern gate through the pushpit affords easy access to the "sugar scoop" stern for exiting, boarding, offloading groceries and gear, and swimming. The swim ladder and fresh water shower are handy as well. Stowed off the boat is a custom canvas winter cover which covers the boat entirely to the waterline.
The AB VL9 RIB dinghy is carried on Kato Davits w/6 part blocks, and the 8hp 2-stroke Yamaha outboard on a Kato Crane w/6 part block.
Lagniappe is cutter rigged continuing Island Packet's long term commitment to this highly desirable and proven sailplan consisting of in-mast furling mainsail, 115% high-cut roller furling genoa, and roller furling staysail (all Quantum 2015) and an Asymmetrical spinnaker with sock, sheets and blocks, also by Quantum (2012). The staysail is rigged on the Hoyt freestanding boom simplifying control with superior performance. Genoa and staysail furlers are by Harken.
