If you are looking at this listing I can assume you know sailboats well and that you are looking for a quality yacht - And this Island Packet 420 has all of the design, quality and features that come standard in these exceptionally well built yachts: 2 great staterooms, 2 heads, ensuite master head with separate shower, large salon, a great galley, spacious comfortable cockpit, swim platform and a tremendous amount of storage throughout.  

However… “La Vida Dulce” has much more to offer than the others!

Obviously she is kitted out with all of the wants and needs that an experienced sailor would expect in a yacht purpose built to go to sea. However there are a number of things that set “La Vida Dulce” apart and above her sisters. For a start there is all the Hinckley custom joinery work in the galley done at a cost of just over $25,000. It’s not just beautiful it makes this galley more usable than any other IP420.

The main salon also has custom built seating with fold down arm rest/table on the port side. All of the upholstery was hand-picked and coordinated to make the salon feel like a warm comfortable home at sea. The owners cabin has the finest foot thick therapeutic mattress that we have ever seen on a boat combined with a custom and very elegant bed cover. The home entertainment system in the owner’s cabin can take you to the movies.

The cockpit is fully enclosed with custom cushions and even custom back cushions that again make the feel of the cockpit much like that of the salon – a very comfortable, friendly place to read a book or to entertain family and friends.

If you are looking for a safe well-built and well thought out yacht an Island Packet must always be on your short list. If you are looking for that very special Island Packet 420 you must see - “La Vida Dulce”.
