NEW Major Price Reduction! Motivated Seller!
This is a rare opportunity to own a superbly preserved world cruising yacht, the Island Packet 44.  I had the privilege of helping her current owners find the boat two years ago.  Ironically, it was the first boat we looked at.  Though we looked at many others up and down the east coast of the US, we kept coming back to this boat.  The more yachts we scrutinized, the more we knew this was the boat to buy.  Now you have that same chance.
This particular boat has been only lightly cruised on the Chesapeake Bay for years, even though she is completely outfitted for round-the-world voyaging.  Step aboard and the level of care she has enjoyed will be obvious.  "Sophyra" has enjoyed substantial upgrades during the 2009-2011 time frame.  is a beautiful Island Packet 44. She is the one you want to buy! She is lightly used in perfect condition. Over the past three years her owners have upgraded the vessel with new sails, new running rigging, new air conditioning system, new Garmin GPS plotter, new wind generation, and new solar panels.  About the only thing I can think of that you might add to this totally tricked out yacht would be a watermaker.  That will be easy as the plumbing and wiring for one is already in place!
In 1990 Island packet conceived a truly world capable long range cruiser, the IP44, what would be their flagship model for several years.  Classic in her lines, yet modern, versatile, and very quick, she's the perfect boat for short or long term time aboard, both above and below decks.
Bob Johnson, owner of IP and designer of this yacht, has a passion for yacht design and boat building that has fueled the company through more than 30 models.  Island Packet's success is built on a the commitment to build a quality boat that meets the needs and expectations of her owners. While the vessels have evolved with new layouts and new creature features, often with lots of input from current IP owners, you can see through new models for sale today the heritage that comes from this model, so popular through the 1990's. These vessels age very well and they hold their value better than many other brands on the market today.  This yacht has evolved over the years into their current model, the IP460, a yacht that, similarly equipped, will set you back about $750,000.
What makes them so ideal?  This yacht is incredibly solidly constructed, a feature you'll notice before you're even out of the slip and sailing.  She's so easy and safe to sail -- nearly everything is controllable from the cockpit.  Her cockpit is huge, great for safety in big waves off shore, accommodating for crew and several guests AND plenty of length for those lazy sailing days when you just want to unwind and take a nap while your companions run the boat.  Her decks are wide and easy to transit as you head forward.
Throughout their large and versatile line of yachts, IP44 continues the traditions of top quality construction, top-of-the-line gear and systems, plenty of room all the tasks and projects you may want to enjoy while aboard.  The main salon is spacious and versatile, with L-shaped seating to starboard & twin lounge seats to port.  The flip down salon table gives you so much room when you need the space while entertaining.  Her galley is second to none in her size range and ideal for gourmet meal preparation.  Her nav station, nowadays nearly a thing of the past, is huge and makes a great home office space as well as having plenty of room for real charts and plenty of electronics.  She has two full sized staterooms, each with a head.  The aft head doubles as a day head.  There's tons of natural light via numerous deck hatches and opening ports (everything opens).
Below the waterline, IP has remained true to the design features necessary for a cruising sailboat including their full keel solid hand laid construction, integral encapsulated keel ballast, protected prop and rudder, true cutter rig for easy sail handling, high bulwarks, and a safe anchoring platform.
We'll attempt through this listing, to acquaint you with this awesome yacht and all of her treats.  We've taken over 200 photos of her that we can email to you with short notice.  Take a virtual tour of this boat and then give us a shout for a private showing in person.  You won't be disappointed!
