As you walk up to this Island Packet 420, you will think it has come straight out of the shed. Having just gone back in the water with a fresh coat of paint – she looks like the current owners have spent 2 weeks polishing! This boat is shiny, clean and ready to go.
The engineering and quality of workmanship is what sets these boats apart from anything else on the market, highlighted in the 7 Key features of this yacht:
1 Performance and seakeeping. Goes upwind like crazy and will hove to like a dream
2 Integral Hull and Keel. 1 piece hand laminated, no join between hull and keel.
3 Direct steering with a rack and pinion system. Beautiful feel on the helm.
4 Protected propeller and rudder. No driftwood is going to damage your baby.
5 Versatile easy handling sail plan is a standout feature.
6 Protective Bulwarks for safe footing on deck. Staying onboard is pretty important offshore.
7 Tangle free ground tackle storage. For when you need immediate access to your anchor as happy hour approaches.
This boat can easily be sailed short-handed, the galley is safe and functional at sea. The cabin accommodations and sea berths are very comfortable, great storage, and ample ventilation. This may seem simple, but surprisingly few "cruising boats" pass this test.
The self tacking staysail is fantastic for short tacking up the harbour or just a nice simple day sail. Then easily roll out the genoa for long trips on one tack. The Leisure furl main is a dream to reef in and will make life on anchor very stable with all that weight down low.
You even have an electric winch to take the strain.
