This is the 2000 Southampton Boat Show Island Packet 380 long keel, cutter rigged cruising yacht.
She sleeps seven in two double cabins and saloon and benefits and from an extensive inventory for ocean sailing or just local cruising and is well maintained by her owner who is in the process of replacing the Fischer Panda generator and has recently replaced the mainsail. This Island Packet 380 is auxiliary powered by a Yanmar 56 HP inboard diesel engine.
A harmonious blend of practical cruising features and live aboard comfort is evidenced throughout, giving this Island Packet 380 what are perhaps the best accommodations of any yacht in its size range.
Extras include Radar, GPS, Chart Plotters, AIS, Water Maker, Solar Panels, Full Cockpit Bimini, HF and VHF Radios, Bow Thruster, Monitor Sail Vane, Cruising Chute, Fridge Freezer. In the aft cabin is a built-in Creda 3.5kg full electric washing machine with specifically made cabinetry that fits in well with the cabin furniture.
Complete with Mercury 5 HP 2 stroke outboard.
A moulded sole area with a slip-resistant surface surrounds the base of the companionway ladder and extends into the nav and galley areas to provide both secure footing and easy maintenance for this busy central area.
Added convenience is provided by a lift-out central teak grate with dust pan and lighted bilge access below, interior courtesy lights with a switch located at the companionway entrance, an interior lock for the sliding companionway hatch, and teak drop-boards with a fixed, etched glass portlight and an interior storage rack.
Below decks, one is immediately impressed by the 380's open accommodation plan and spacious surroundings.
The galley, immediately to the starboard side of the companionway, is easily accessible to the cockpit and the main salon, and features numerous convenience details for the cruising sailor. A generous, wraparound counter provides ample work space for food preparation while numerous drawers, lockers, and laminate-lined cabinets offer abundant space for organized provisioning and kitchenware storage.
A sealed burner LPG stove and oven, along with a standard (115V) microwave oven, deep polished stainless steel sinks, overhead light, and a slide out trash receptacle make for pleasurable galley duties.
In place of the standard insulated icebox the owners have installed a separate freezer area from the fridge area. A foldup counter extension, built-in dish rack and cutlery storage drawers, and numerous other detail features are sure to be appreciated both in harbour and underway.
The owners have replaced the normal Island Packet fitting of the gas strop (which did cause some problems) and have created a stainless steel cover for the block which is then bolted right through horizontally. A much stronger fitting than the normal Island Packet one.
Dessalator 60 Litres per hour watermaker (belt driven with spare belts and a spare raw water primary filter).
The main saloon's large, central living area is equally suited for social gatherings, off-watch retreats, or gourmet dining. The central hinged table with overhead lights may be either secured against the bulkhead mounted bottle and glass rack, or easily lowered to make a large dining area.
An exceptional amount of interior stowage is available in the salon, as elsewhere in the yacht, due in large part to the generous tankage centrally located below the cabin sole. Besides the obvious benefit of improving stowage, this feature also provides additional comfort while underway by keeping the considerable weight of tank fluids low and out of the ends of the yacht. This also reduces fore and aft trim changes with varying tank levels.
Both settees are full length for added sleeping space, with the portside bunk pulling out to provide a nice sized double. Beautiful cabinetry and joiner-work in select hand oiled teak, premium designer fabric over dual density 5-inch cushions, well placed light fixtures and handrails, numerous opening ports, deck vents and hatches, and durable and easily maintained overhead and hull surfaces make this salon and the entire interior as attractive and as it is practical.
The nav station is situated at the aft end of the port side main salon bunk and doubles as the yacht's main control centre. Two deluxe, well labelled electrical panels controls all AC and DC functions on the yacht.
Ample extra breakers and mounting space are provided for the extensive navigation equipment and an additional Blue Sea Systems breaker switch panel of six switches (each currently 15 Amp).
Below is a serial port 4 way automatic switch for enabling serial to USB connection to the PC. This allows normal NMEA data from the Chart Plotter to be passed to the PC navigational software when required.
The chart table area includes Chart Plotter, AIS receiver, HF (SSB) transceiver, VHF transceiver (both with DSC). New hand held 'fist' microphones have been installed in 2014
NASA BM-1 battery monitor which shows digitally all inputs and output of the batteries.
The Chart Plotter (Raytheon RL70C) also has integrated Radar and Log functions and these are repeated up to the Raytheon RC520 Chart Plotter in the cockpit. Either plotter can be used independently if necessary with the exception of the radar which can only be repeated to the cockpit.
All instruments can be shown on the chartplotter, that is Depth, Wind Speed and Direction, Boat Speed, Course, Speed over the Ground, True Wind, Apparent Wind etc etc
Furuno DFAX FAX-207 receiver/printer for Navtex or Weather Faxes.
ICOM 802 HF/SSB transceiver (with DSC), with switch controlled speaker by navigation table in saloon.

NASA Battery monitor.
AIS Radar Unit for monitoring ships up to 32 nms away.
Mercury Pure Sinewave Inverter 1000W (above chart table) linked to 70Amp breaker switch in battery compartment.
A chart drawer, large enough for bound chart packs or folded Admiralty-sized charts, is provided underneath the settee while a handy drawer for navigator tools is accessed just above the table.
Included in the sale are all the NT chart chips with the whole of the Mediterranean Sea (as far as Greece and Turkey), the Red Sea, the Atlantic Islands (Madeira, Canaries, Cabo Verde, Bermuda and the Azores), The West African Coast (Northern part), The Caribbean (windward and leaward islands from Trinidad up to St Maarten).
The forward owner's cabin is a real delight with a queen sized, centre line island berth with access from both sides. The aft half of the berth, mounted on gas support struts, lifts to reveal a large "blanket chest." Drawers, storage bins, and a generous hanging locker also provide additional storage space for personal gear and provisions.
A Dorade vent, opening ports, and a large overhead hatch provide light and ventilation, and a private door into the head further enhances this exceptional forward stateroom.
Island Packet yachts have long been noted for their exceptionally livable designs, and the 380's large head will further that reputation. Accessed from the owner's cabin or the main salon, it features a generous vanity with cabinet below a deep polished oval stainless steel sink, a large overhead hatch, opening port, and several lockers for toiletry items.
The head is made particularly spacious with a clever folding shower stall enclosure that stows against the aft bulkhead when not in use. This features a full length mirror in the stowed position and, when open, divides the shower from the vanity area with full height, textured, clear acrylic doors.
A fold down teak shower seat and wraparound countertop surrounds the head providing "captain's chair" seating and making the whole area very user friendly.
In the aft cabin the most notable feature - besides the large Pullman style athwart ship bunk - is the built-in Creda 3.5kg full electric washing machine with specifically made cabinetry that fits in well with the cabin furniture. This unit is fully connected to cold water input and to the waste water outlet. Together with the Generator this provides the ability to be even more independent when in harbour or at an anchorage.
Another full length mirror, two opening ports, overhead hatch, large cedar-lined hanging locker, and bureau provide comfort and convenience.
The well laid out deck with meticulously moulded detail offers wide walkways, raised bulwarks forward, full length continuous stainless steel cabin top handrails, double lifelines with welded rails fore and aft, and two tone premium diamond pattern, slip resistant surfaces, all designed to enhance safety and security while moving about on the deck. Lifeline gates feature a teak step plate with a recess to accept aft led reefing - furling lines, keeping the gate area free of loose lines when in port.
The cockpit has full length contoured seats that accommodate a large crew or invite stretching out. The helmsperson will enjoy excellent visibility from the raised seat with padded backrest. The console mounted steering features Island Packet's trademark rack and pinion geared design, providing a combination of reliability, strength, and sensitivity unmatched by any other wheel steering design. A steering wheel brake and single lever engine control lever are also provided on the pedestal, with additional room provided for a dealer - owner installed instrument pod containing the Raytheon RC520 Chart Plotter, Auto-pilot controls and the Bow-Thruester controls.
Also on the pedestal there is an anchor windlass cockpit control switch. The engine panel itself is within easy reach of the helm on the starboard side and features full analogue gauges for all readouts. On the port side there is a VHF cockpit speaker and a 12V "cigarette" lighter socket (for use with the very powerful search light.
Cockpit convenience features abound with standard details such as a built-in insulated beverage locker, two large seat lockers with gas support struts for easy access, a hand held personal shower (cold only). A boarding ladder with rubber treads for the starboard entry. Two stern rail seats, and original Island Packet cockpit table.
There is also a pedestal mounted folding table made by the owners which they may wish to keep.
Safety concerns are equally well met with a pin lock for securing companionway drop boards, robust padeyes for safety harness attachments, a raised companionway bridge deck, large cockpit scupper drain capacity, and self-locking seat locker hatches with push button hasps that release from inside and out.
The owners have replaced the guardrail wires at each side of the cockpit with full stainless steel bars and canvas Spray Dodgers to provide additional security at sea.
Belaying bars span the shrouds on port and starboard with four belaying pins on each side allows all of the smaller halyards to be held clear of the deckand makes for very easy handling.
Island Packet's long term commitment to the cutter rig, paralleling the choice of experienced offshore cruisers and short-handed racers worldwide, is due to its versatility, ease of use, and excellent performance over a wide range of wind and sea conditions. Thoughtful features such as self-tailing winches, colour coded lines, rope clutches, traveller control lines, and coaming line stowage bins make sailing easier than ever. All of the major halyards, sheets and reefing lines are brought back to the cockpit for greater safety at sea.
A full and substantial stainless steel arch houses all of the antennas and two Sharp 80 watt solar panels (on a pivot bar).
Stainless steel bases for the bow and stern cleats and fairleads have also been added and the depth of the fairlead bases have been increased and a third stainless steel bolt in the centre has been added for additional strength.
