The Island Packet 370 is the result of nearly 30 years of design refinement and evolution, combining input from the many enthusiastic owners, dealers, and the Island Packet factory team. That evolution has led to some marked differences from previous models. The refined hull, keel and rudder shape and proportionately wider stern provide improved boat speed, a larger sugar scoop swim platform and more internal volume for accommodations and stowage. The rigs are taller than in previous models, adding sail carrying power and improved boat speed. Less exterior teak to care for, a watertight anchor locker bulkhead…
Designed with accommodations for extended cruising, the 370 is one of the only yachts in her class to boast large island berths in both staterooms. With cedar-lined hanging lockers, blanket bins under hinged bunk lids, wide shelves, bureaus and plenty of headroom both forward and aft staterooms can easily serve as the master stateroom.
Island Packets have been respected and admired around the world for their exemplary construction, superior seakeeping, and delightful sailing qualities. Below deck their reputation continues, with luxurious accommodations, wonderful galley space and an incredible amount of storage space. Full-length port and starboard seating areas are both comfortable and practical, double as sea berths and the port settee conveniently converts to a double berth.
Whether your plans are local, coastal or long-distance cruising, the Island Packet 370 will take you confidently wherever you plan to go. She truly is a boat that will take care of you when you can’t take care of yourself.
Our offering, “KINGFISHER”, has received nothing but the best of care since her owners purchased her. She has been professionally maintained in Bristol condition by one of the best yards in New England.
To give you a feel for the kind of care Kingfisher has received, here’s some of the annual off-season service she received:
Every fall before haul out the yard took the boat out for a trial run to inspect the engine for any issues that needed to be attended to over the winter. Fluids were changed, seacocks were opened to drain, the bilges were dried. An electrolysis test was performed. The depth transducer was checked for saltwater leakage. The holding tank was flushed and winterized as was the freshwater system.
The VHF was tested, winter maintenance was performed on all of the electronics and the chart plotters were removed were stored in climate-controlled storage for the winter. Sails and canvas were removed and delivered to the sail loft for cleaning, service, and storage. Batteries were charged, load tested, cleaned and disconnected. The mast, boom, and furler were removed and stored indoors. The boat was washed with Salt Away and shrink wrapped for the Winter.
Over the winter and during Spring commissioning, the spars were cleaned and polished. Running rigging was cleaned. Blocks, sheaves, turnbuckles, and winches were cleaned and lubricated. Furlers were cleaned, lubricated and polished. Standing rigging was inspected and serviced as necessary. The rack and pinion steering were inspected, serviced as necessary and lubricated. Seacocks were cleaned and lubricated. The engine was cleaned, hoses and belts inspected, hose clamps tightened, replaced as needed and lubricated. Throttle and shifter were inspected, adjusted and lubricated. The air intake was removed and the filter cleaned. Sea strainers were cleaned and O-rings lubricated. Raw water pumps were cleaned, inspected and impellers replaced. Sump pumps and bilge pumps were cleaned and tested. The air conditioning was serviced. The bonding system was cleaned and sprayed with protectant. Mast and deck light sockets were cleaned and sprayed as well and bulbs tested. Deck hardware was cleaned and waxed. Fiberglass was inspected, cleaned, touched up, scuff marks removed and smooth portions waxed. Cetol was inspected, touched up and coated. The boat was taken out for a trial run to confirm proper operation.
Basically the service people touched every inch of this boat cleaning, lubricating, replacing anything in question, polishing and making sure the boat was perfect. She was in the water for about six months of the year and undercover the other six. Any issues that arose during the sailing season were addressed immediately. As a broker, this is the kind of listing that sets the benchmark- I wish they all showed this kind of love and caring stewardship.
KINGFISHER shows extremely well and is certainly worthy of your personal inspection. In this kind of condition, I don’t expect her to last very long. Call and make an appointment to come see KINGFISHER today!
Master stateroom: The master stateroom is located forward, with the centerline walk-around berth the focal point in the cabin. The 77” x 54” berth has a huge blanket locker with gas assisted lifts at the foot and a large cedar lined drawer beneath it. On the port side is a cedar lined locker with shelves and on starboard two lockers- one hanging and one with shelves, also cedar lined. Above both are fiddled shelves and down at nightstand height a pair of fiddled shelves extend forward part of the way toward the head of the bed.
Entry into this cabin is via a bi-fold door, so it’s out of the way. There is also a private entry into the head. Lighting is provided by a pair of reading lights at the head of the bed, two overhead lights and a wall lamp by the hanging locker. Additional lighting and ventilation are provided by a dorade vent, an overhead hatch and two opening ports. Headroom in here is 6’4”.
Head: The head is located forward on port and is accessible from the saloon and the master stateroom. The space is predominantly of unitized fiberglass construction, making for easy cleaning. The sole is a patterned non-skid for sure footing and there are drains for both the open area and in the shower. As you enter, the toilet is to your left and the sink area is straight ahead. Below the sink is a locker with shelves; above and behind the counter are a cubbie space and a shelf with sliding doors above that. To the right is a teak framed oval mirror.

Headroom in this space is 6’4”. Lighting and ventilation are provided by a wall mounted light, an opening port and an overhead hatch.
Saloon: The Island Packet saloons are renowned for their spaciousness and comfort. Part of this is achieved by their signature bulkhead mounted table.

When lowered, in reveals nice shelf and bottle storage behind the table tops.
The starboard settee can be used a single 6’2” long sea berth. The entire space below the seat cushions is storage; behind the seat backs is storage the full length of the settee. Forward of the settee is a cedar lined hanging locker with a louvered door and fiddled shelf space above it.

There is a shelf with a fiddle between both lockers as well as a fiddled shelf above the forward locker.
The port settee is 6’4” long and angled at the aft end. A pull-out stored beneath the settee converts the seat to a 43” wide berth. There is a chartbook drawer at the forward end under the settee, another signature Island Packet feature. The rest of the space beneath this berth contains batteries and air conditioner equipment. Behind the seat backs is all storage the full length of the seat. Above and behind it mirrors the starboard side, with the electrical panels behind the double doored space at the aft end.

Galley: The galley is located at the base of the companionway on starboard. The large open “C” configuration has a non-skid sole for sure footed safety- small spills don’t become slick spots. Below the floor is a dry bin storage area. Starting at the forward end, the angled Corian counter has a flip-up counter extension that provides additional space as well as a place to set things when you are seated at the settee. The deep polished double stainless steel sinks are oriented towards center so that they drain while under way. Beneath towards center is a pull-out rubbish bin, with a louvered door locker beneath. Towards the hullside from the sink is a top-loading dry bin, which has two levels and loads of space inside. Above the dry bin is the microwave.
Continuing around along the hullside there is a Force 10 gimballed three burner stove and oven. There is a countertop cover for the stove and a large storage space beneath the stove for pots and pans. A safety bar provides attachment points for a safety belt while at sea. Above and behind the stove is a fiddled shelf; to the right of it is a locker with sliding doors. A fiddled shelf runs the length of the hull behind the galley cabinets.
Along the aft end of the galley is a large top-loading icebox with gas assist lifts and a spillover freezer/refrigerator system. There are two drawers beneath the icebox; behind the stove are dish organizer compartments, a cutlery drawer and a utensil drawer. There is an overhead light, two wall mounted lights, an opening port and an overhead hatch for lighting and ventilation. Headroom in this space is 6’1”.
Aft stateroom: Entry into the aft stateroom is on port through a bi-fold door. The nav station is immediately to your right, with an electrically operated swing-out seat, a nice size chart table and storage beneath the table.

Island Packets have arguably more storage per foot in them than any other builder- it’s just incredible. Deep storage behind seat backs- with a center shelf and lift ups for storage beneath the lower shelf. Storage beneath the settees and then storage beneath that on starboard. Large finished bedding/clothes storage areas beneath the feet of the berths with gas-assisted lids for access. Cedar lined drawers and lockers. If you have not seen this for yourself it is worth taking a look- it’s impressive!
