General Description

It is easy to see why the Island Packet 40 is a feature in Ferenc Mates Worlds Best Sailing Boats V2. The opportunity now exists with Lee Marine to own a 40 ft Island Packet cutter rigged sloop.
The IP 40 is big on comfort , big on safety, big on sea kindliness and has the pedigree of one of the worlds best know cruising sailing yachts . They have also won awards for sailing boat of the year and best value sailing boat.

Bob Johnsons hull design for the Island Packet is best described as a modern U-shaped hull for performance , a long keel for seaworthiness, a stretched fin keel making it shallower, but by making it an airfoil shape you then have the fundamentals accompanied with the excellent internal volume of what makes the Island Packet a sought after world cruiser.

This IP was purchase by the current owners because of the interiors light and airy feeling and only realized after cruising her many miles just how excellent the yacht they had purchased is. The accommodation is not crowded and the forward owners cabin with ensuite would make some 45ft yachts around the same production year look cramped to say the least. The cedar lined cupboards and drawers are elegantly finished in teak. Just the right amount to give a nice nautical feel .The galley is U shaped and compliments the sea kindliness of the yacht. That is a sea kindly galley with double stainless steel sinks , gimbaled stove / oven , microwave , good bench area and dedicated storage to keep previsions and cooking equipment away and where they should be. The saloon has a cleaver two stage fold away table which will open the saloon area into a nice lounging area. While only 40ft it is evident that the designer has taken into account the sailors want for the feeling of space and practicality on board. The aft cabin is also spacious and has good hanging space and storage. The day head and shower is also the ensuite to the second cabin.

This cutter rigged sloop is set up to cruise any where, the aft cock is well set out and deep which also makes the working winches easier to use. The whole cock pit is covered by a Sunbrella bimni and dodger to protect from all the elements.

This IP has been well cared for and set up by the current owners. Most of the inventory and spares have not been mentioned in this text. The new owners will be able to take advantage of this well set up yacht and enjoy the sailing reliability this Island Packet 40 has given them over the years. Lee Marine invite inspections and requests for full comprehensive specifications today.
