More than 2,200 Island Packets have been built for passage making in safety and comfort and can be found sailing throughout the world. This popular North American Island Packet 44 design is well set up for comfort with a roomy interior and generous headroom – with designer Bob Johnson providing a modern interpretation of a traditional full keel, recognized by the shallow draft, spacious accommodation and rugged GRP with a cedar core.
The full one piece keel combines the performance of a modern hull with the superior sea keeping and safety of the longer keel, and provides additional protection from damage for rudder and propeller. The boat has a versatile and easily managed cutter rig and boomed jib, exceptional comfort and liveability, spirited sailing performance, superb build quality and award-winning features. With high quality finish, berths for seven in 3 doubles and one single, and a great galley.
She has an exceptionally comfortable saloon and deluxe “head” with a separate shower stall and ample storage. Island Packet models have won several industry awards over the years, including seven Cruising World magazine “Boat of the Year” awards and three SAIL magazine “Best Boats” awards.
A BUSINESS AND LIFESTYLE: A Bay of Islands lifestyle for you: The associated charter business is busy with many bookings ahead. The boat is currently in MOSS survey for inshore charter for 4 guests and two crew overnight, and up to 18 guests plus skipper by day.
