In 1996, the Island Packet 45 replaced the 44, becoming Island Packet's Flagship yacht and one of the prettiest Island Packet models ever. She continued IP's cruising philosophy but with much more tankage and a large, dedicated navigation station. her Forward Head was at the bow followed by a king sized Pullman Berth. Her aft cabin had a huge Quarter Berth and a private entrance to the aft Head. The 45 is BIG, LUXURIOUS and SPACIOUS with lots of elbow room, storage and space for living, cruising and entertaining. She had the longest waterline of the fleet and a good turn of speed. All of her sails are on the furling systems making her easy to handle.
TIKI HUT is located in a private gated community but is ready to go to her next home. Please call to arrange a convenient time to visit.
Next aft, the large Main Saloon has an "L" shaped settee to starboard that converts to a good sized double berth. The dining table stores against the bulkhead when not in use. There is a facing settee on port side, large enough for at-sea napping. There is storage everywhere here including under and behind the settees with teak cabinets and book shelves outboard both port and starboard. A Chart drawer under the starboard settee is filled with cruising guides and charts for Florida and the Bahamas. Ventilation is excellent with a large overhead hatch, numerous ports and 2 dorados. For safety, there is an overhead hand rail on each side of the saloon with numerous grab points throughout.
