The Island Packet 420 designed by Bob Johnson embodies a host of proven design and construction features that have evolved for Island Packet over years of boatbuilding experience and via feedback of thousands of owners.
'Brag' is a one owner since new Island Packet 420, her owners have equipped maintained and upgraded her to a very high standard.
Representing a significant evolution from earlier models in this size range, the IP420 delivers the combination of seakeeping, safety, stability and speed coupled with the comfort, liveability, and value making Island Packet a cruising yacht leader.
The Island Packet 420 received the award for 'Best Full-Size Cruiser' in the 2000 Boat Of The Year competition as conducted by Cruising World magazine.
'Brag is currently being shipped to Southampton and will be available for viewing from our Hamble Point Marina brokerage office from May, June 2018.
BRAG is for sale after 14 years of careful costal cruising by same owner couple from new culminating in a superbly successful transatlantic crossing from Scotland to the Caribbean via the European Atlantic coast in 2017. Mission accomplished, the owners are ready to pass on Brag to her next intrepid sailing crew.
One of the legendary and rare 420 models, Brag was born in the renowned Bob Johnson yard widely acknowledged as a world leader in safe, comfortable and reliable ocean cruising. Brag was completely overhauled and equipped for her 2017 ocean crossing to meet stringent ARC specifications and is happy to describe herself as 'better than new', including sails, standing rigging, generator, Iridium GO, Raymarine navigation equipment, water maker etc.
It's no wonder her transatlantic crew fell in love with her.
