FRESH WATER BOAT LIGHTLY USED FOR 10 YEARS THEN UPGRADED TO CRUISE TO THE CARIBBEAN FOR THE LAST 2 YEARS!
WELL MAINTAINED & ONE OF THE NEWEST ON THE MARKET
The IP420 is one of the most desirable and best built yachts Island Packet has ever offered and "True Love" is a wonderful example of this model.
Two great staterooms, two heads, ensuite master head has a separate shower, large salon, a great galley, spacious comfortable cockpit, swim platform and a tremendous amount of storage throughout make this a great choice for you!
Some of True Loves upgrades and features as follows:
The Island Packet 420 represents a significant evolution from earlier models in this size range. The 420 hull incorporates a host of design elements that improve a concept that emphasizes seakeeping, safety, stability, and speed. The bow and stern configurations combine to increase boat speed through a longer sailing waterline and reduced resistance in waves, while refinements to the keel and rudder foil sections benefit upwind performance, reduce drag, and enhance steering.
Conveniently located in Annapolis - she is well equipped to go cruising and ready to take you South for the winter. Call now - you will not be disappointed!
True Love was purchased in the summer of 2004 and moved to a harbour on Lake Erie. In the early years, True Love was rarely used. Every winter the vessel was pulled out of the water and kept in a heated boathouse.
In 2010 when the current owners purchased her, she had only 200 hours on the engine. They continued to sail her in the Great Lakes until 2014.
In 2014, True Love was upgraded to cruise the Caribbean - chartplotter, radar, short wave radio, AIS, satellite communications, a wifi extender, solar panels, a wind generator, new batteries, storm sails, a parachute sea anchor and a Rochna anchor.
In 2016 the autopilot computer and controllers were replaced.
And in 2017 the instrumentation was upgraded to NMEA2000. (approximate total value of upgrades was $30,000.)
When cruising the Carribean the True Love was only used for approximately two months a year. When not in use, the vessel was stored on dry land, the dodger and bimini were put in storage, the topsides were waxed and the hull was painted yearly. The topside teak was refinished in 2017.
Island Packet Yachts have long been noted for their exceptionally livable designs. There is an exceptional amount of interior stowage available in the salon, as else-where in the yacht, due in large part to the generous tankage being centrally located below the cabin sole. This feature also keeps these considerable weights low and close to the center of the yacht to maximize stability and minimize trim changes. All sole surfaces in the galley, companionway, and navigation areas are molded in a slip-resistant diamond pattern for improved safety and ease of maintenance in these frequently used areas. Beautiful handcrafted cabinetry and joinery work is found throughout the yacht. Comfortable, thick cushions, well placed light fixtures and handrails, numerous opening ports, dorade deck vents and hatches, and a durable and easily maintained overhead and hull surfaces make the salon and the entire interior attractive, comfortable and practical.
MASTER STATEROOM: The owner's suite is forward and is a true delight with the entire beam of the yacht utilized for a grand and inviting retreat. There is a large island berth which is offset from the hull providing easy access from both sides. The aft section of the berth-top, mounted on gas support struts, lifts to reveal a large storage area ideal for those bulky items like blankets. Drawers, cabinets, storage bins and a deep hanging locker provide ample space for personal gear. A seat to port adds further convenience. Two overhead hatches, a dorade vent and several opening ports will keep this area bright and well ventilated.
MASTER HEAD: Forward is a private ensuite head with a large separate stall shower. The shower area is fitted with a folding acrylic door and built -in seat. In the head there is a deep S/S sink with vanity, marine toilet, several lockers and drawers and excellent ventilation with an overhead hatch and opening portlights.
SALON: As you can see in the pictures, the salon is a open with comfortable seating; an inviting area to lounge or entertain. The hinged table is secured out of the way against the bulkhead. Behind this is a very nice bottle and glass rack. The table is easily lowered to make either a small or a large dining area. When the table is fully opened this also provides a great project area. If you wish to have additional friends or family stay aboard, the starboard settee pulls out to provide a double berth. Behind and under both settees are an immense amount of storage areas.
Aft to starboard of the salon is the nav area with an electrically powered swing-out seat and large hinged chart table.
The galley is aft of the nav, immediately to the starboard side of the companionway. (See more on both the galley and nav areas below.)
AFT CABIN: Features a large Pullman-style athwartship berth, a large cedar lined hanging locker and a generous bureau with several compartments. Two opening ports and an overhead hatch bathe the area in natural light and provide excellent ventilation.
AFT HEAD: Entered from either the main salon or through a private door in the aft cabin, the aft head, with its folding teak shower seat, wraparound vanity, oval polished sink, teak framed mirror, and bulkhead mounted shower unit with a pull around curtain provide particularly nice facilities for guests and crew. Shower drains in both heads have an electric drain pump.
The galley is conveniently located at the base of the companionway on the starboard side. Ideal for the cruising sailor is its practical U-shaped design and its many features such as: generous counter space, dish rack with cutlery drawers, pot and pan bin, large dry storage locker, and counter top cabinets, several deep storage drawers and a pull-out trash receptacle. There is also a well insulated refrigerator/freezer with lots of room for additional food for those longer trips. The lid easily opens on a gas strut to reveal a divided compartment that is lighted and has an electric drain pump. The slip resistant molded sole provides secure footing and easy maintenance - a great feature in the galley.
The nav area is just forward of the galley and has a full-size navigation table with a swing-out seat. There is a storage tray under the hinged tabletop, a locker under, another locker outboard of the table, and a chart drawer under the settee immediately forward of the nav area. The master electrical distribution panels are recessed, yet still easily accessed.
75 hp Yanmar, turbo diesel, 4 cylinder, fresh water cooled engine. Racor fuel filter w/water separator is mounted on a door in the galley for easy access. Extensive sound control is achieved with lead-lined insulation and gasketed doors.
The Island Packet 420 has been created with a somewhat taller configuration to take advantage of her extra sail carrying ability and to enhance both light air and upwind performance. With the furling mainsail, cutter rig and sail controls lines aft - sailing has become easier and more enjoyable than ever.
The contributions to performance and sail control from the Hoyt staysail boom would be hard to overstate. This simple device has "turbo-charged" the staysail's contribution to overall performance and makes the cutter rig better than ever. The 420 has excellent qualities for cruising under all points of sail in a wide variety of conditions with a very manageable and versatile rig.
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: a moderate draft for access to a wider range of cruising grounds, low ballast placement for increased stability, superior protection for rudder and propeller, integral one-piece construction for maximum strength, and a highly effective airfoil shape for windward performance.
The 420 deck design offers all the key features long appreciated by Island Packet owners: a recessed foredeck with bulwarks for safety on deck, an anchor platform with two rollers for immediate access to both anchors, wide easy sidedecks for easy passage, full-length stainless steel cabin top handrails (no varnishing required), Dorade vents with SS guards, SS mast pulpits and high double lifelines with side and stern gates.
The large cockpit is very comfortable with long contoured seats that accommodate a large crew or invite stretching out. Features include a built-in insulated beverage locker, a folding table, two large seat lockers with interior lights, a separate helm seat with backrest, always popular molded stern rail seats, a central gate leading to a stern platform, a hand held personal shower, deep swim ladder with rubber treads, padeyes for safety harness attachments and large cockpit scupper drain capacity.
