Island Packet 380
Hull and Topsides
The Island Packet 380 represents an evolution of the design, engineering, and construction philosophy proven in over 1600 yachts in countless miles of worldwide cruising. The Full Foil keel is a foundation of the Island Packet concept, and its design and construction provide a number of advantages for the cruising sailor: moderate draft for access to more desirable cruising grounds, integral one-piece construction for superior strength, a highly effective airfoil shape for excellent windward performance, protected rudder, and a modern hull form for enhanced speed and maneuverability. The safety and seakeeping offered by this keel design provide both peace of mind and additional comfort while underway.
The well laid out deck offers wide walkways, raised forward bulwarks, full length continuous stainless steel cabin top handrails, double lifelines with welded bow & stern rails and molded diamond pattern slip resistant surfaces. All designed to enhance safety and security while moving about on the deck.
The cockpit has 7' contoured seats that accommodate a large crew as well as providing a great place to stretch out. The helmsman has excellent visibility from the raised seat. The pedestal mounted steering features Island Packet's trademark rack and pinion steering system, providing reliability, and strength unmatched by any other wheel steering design. The wheel brake and single lever engine control are located on the pedestal as well. The engine panel is within easy reach of the helm and features full analog gauges. Other cockpit features include a built-in insulated beverage locker, two large seat lockers with gas support struts for easy access, cockpit shower, stainless steel swim ladder, two stern rail seats, and a pedestal mounted folding table, companionway drop board lock pins, additional hinged companionway 'doors' for quicker access, padeyes for safety harness attachments, a raised companionway bridge-deck, 2"cockpit scuppers, and self-locking seat locker hatches with push button hasps that release from both inside and out - all designed into the boat for safety when at sea.
This 380 has a flexible cutter rig sail plan with self-tacking jib. This rig provides versatility, ease of use, and excellent performance over a wide range of wind and sea conditions. This highly desired sail plan is improved upon with a freestanding staysail "Hoyt Boom", simplifying control and adding performance to this effective sail plan. The mainsail is equipped with full battens for durability and efficiency, and lazy jacks to ease sail handling. All control lines are led to the cockpit adding extra control and security when under way.
Entering the cabin you have wide companionway steps with effective hand holds. Your first step below is on molded non-skid providing a secure safe surface when entering wet as well as easy clean up. This surface is carried into both the galley and nav area as well. Port side aft is the aft cabin. There is a full-size berth and plenty of drawer and locker storage for guests. Natural ventilation is provided by two stainless steel ports and an overhead hatch.
Just forward of the aft cabin is the navigation and electrical control station to port. There is a large chart table with a chart draw for storage just forward. In addition to the table are breaker panels for 12 volt DC and 120 volt AC with voltage and amperage meters. Also in this area is the Standard Horizon VHF radio with DSC distress call capability.
On the starboard side of the companionway is the galley. This galley is large and designed for cooking at sea or entertaining guests at anchor or at the dock. There is a large holding plate refrigerator/freezer. Storage is provided by numerous draws and cabinets both above and below the counters to include storage for dishes and utensils. A large stainless steel double sink along with a pull out trash receptacle help make for easy clean up. Natural ventilation is provided by two opening stainless steel ports and an overhead hatch.
Moving forward you enter the salon/dining or lounging area. This space is large and uncluttered aided by the fold up dining table. When in the closed position it hides a convenient storage area for bottles and table necessities and when opened it can be used with one or both sides folded out. Storage is provided by a cedar lined hanging locker at the forward end of the salon and the settees provide massive storage both beneath and behind at two levels behind the settees. This is supported by all the tanks being located beneath the cabin sole providing more usable space under settees for storage. Natural light and ventilation is provided by four opening ports and an overhead hatch.
Just forward and to port is the very large, innovative head/shower with dual access from the main salon as well as the owner’s stateroom forward. The shower area is huge with a solid hammered plexi-glass shower door and teak seat that folds down over the head when in use. When the shower door is stowed it reveals a large full length mirror. Both beneath and above the sink cabinet is storage. This area also has an opening port and overhead hatch.
Forward from the head using the private access door you enter the owner's stateroom. This cabin includes a centerline queen size island berth accessible from both sides. Beneath the foot end of this bed is an innovative lift up storage area with an additional 2 cedar lined draws below providing a second level of storage. To starboard is a cedar lined hanging locker and shelved storage with similar arrangement to port for wonderful storage. Ventilation is provided by two opening ports and a large overhead hatch.
The Island Packet interior woodwork fit and finish is meticulous. The cabin sole is teak and holly and other woods used are teak. All the ports are heavy duty stainless steel which open and latch easily from the inside.
If you are in the market for a 38 to 41 foot cruising boat for live-aboard or other get-aways this is a must-see yacht with a very solid heritage.
