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, wrap around counter provides ample work space for food preparation while numerous drawers, lockers and laminate-lined cabinets offer abundant space for provisioning and kitchenware storage.
The 420 deck offers:
The cockpit offers:
The Quantum sail inventory includes a roller furling mainsail, roller furling staysail and a roller furling genoa.
Entered from either the main salon or through a private door in the aft cabin, the aft head, with its folding teak shower seat, wraparound vanity, oval polished sink, teak framed mirror, and bulkhead mounted shower unit with a pull around curtain provide particularly nice facilities for guests and crew. Shower drains in both heads have an electric drain pump discharging overboard, with sole drains configured to work at rest or under sail.
Island Packet yachts have long been noted for their exceptionally livable designs, and this private head adjoining the master stateroom will further that reputation. Accessed from the forward end of the master stateroom, it features a sink vanity with cabinets above and below, a deep polished oval stainless steel sink, an overhead hatch, opening ports, medicine chest, plus several lockers and two deep drawers. Extra counter space provides “captainchair” seating for the toilet, and a separate stall shower enclosure is fitted with a folding acrylic door and built-in seat.
Accessed through a tall door in the shower stall, the lighted forecastle provides a great spot for securing items like fenders and docklines. An area for a dealer/owner installed bowthruster has been provided and is accessed from either the forecastle, or through the removable shower seat in the forward head. The large divided anchor locker just forward of this forecastle area will easily accommodate two chain anchor rodes.
The Full Foil Keel® continues as the foundation of the Island Packet concept, and its design and construction provide a host of advantages to the cruising sailor: a moderate draft for access to a wider range of cruising grounds, low ballast placement for increased stability, superior protection for rudder and propeller, integral one-piece construction for maximum strength, and a highly effective airfoil shape for windward performance. No other contemporary underbody design offers this unique combination of safety, seakeeping and performance. While designer and naval architect Bob Johnson insists his designs are, “...first and foremost excellent cruising yachts,” the performance of these yachts has earned them an impressive number of victories in prestigious offshore races around the world. The 420 provides a further refinement of Island Packet’s exclusive Full Foil Keel hull design, resulting in unmatched sailing enjoyment and peace of mind for the cruising sailor.
This spacious, central living area is equally suited for social gatherings, off-watch retreats, or gourmet dining. The hinged table may be 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 being centrally located below the cabin sole. This feature also keeps these considerable weights low and close to the center of the yacht to maximize stability and minimize trim changes. The starboard settee pulls out to provide a double berth. Beautiful handcrafted cabinetry and joinerwork throughout the yacht in select, varnished teak, premium designer fabrics over dual density 5” cushions, well-placed light fixtures and handrails, numerous opening ports, Dorade deck vents and hatches, and durable and easily maintained overhead and hull surfaces make this salon and the entire interior attractive, comfortable and practical.
