Manufacturer Provided Description
Designed with Island Packet Yachts' exclusive Full Foil Keel, the Island Packet 40 unifies the performance attributes of modern hull and foil designs with the superior safety, enhanced steering qualities, and more seakindly motion available only with a long keel. This feature brings numerous benefits to the cruising sailor: superior protection from damage or fouling of prop and rudder, an integral hull and keel construction for the strongest possible unified structure, a moderate draft with exceptional stability characteristics for shallow water gunkholing or worldwide voyaging, and winning performance capabilities. Full-length cabin top handrails, double lifelines with welded bow and stern rails, recessed foredeck with bulwarks, and a premium, slip-resistant surface of a contrasting low-glare gelcoat all contribute to offshore safety. Forward, the integral bowsprit-anchor platform increases sail area, improves sheeting angles for enhanced windward performance, and provides ready stowage and immediate access for ground tackle. The 8-foot long cockpit has full-length contoured seats offering plenty of room for comfortable sitting or stretching out. A premium, console-mounted rack and pinion steering system is employed for its exceptional feel and rugged reliability. Integrated into the custom steering console are the single-lever engine control, compass, and flip-up cockpit table. The cutter rig used has furling systems on both the genoa and self-tending staysail. The skipper has a variety of sail combinations available that are readily adaptable to maximize comfort, safety and performance over a wide range of wind and sea conditions. The generous sail plan, utilizing three simply managed sails, coupled with the easily-driven, long-waterline hull form, assures excellent light-air performance. Belowdecks, two double staterooms, well-separated for privacy, and each with an adjoining head and shower, combine with an expansive central living area to provide a gracious setting. Overhead handrails, bulkhead handgrips and an easily maintained, molded slip-resistant cabin sole offer sure-footed movement while underway. The wraparound galley is equipped with a host of detail features for both convenience and safety. The L-shaped settee in the main salon can be quickly converted to an extra double berth with its built-in pullout panel. Forward, there is an elegant, full-width owner's stateroom, with generous stowage. The aft stateroom is similarly roomy and inviting, and has a huge double berth. The engine is mounted on a molded engine bed with an integral drip pan. Fastidious mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems are all in evidence here and are easily accessible through a removable front panel, hinged side panels and an aft cover. All Island Packet 40 structural laminates and internal reinforcements are designed to meet or exceed rigid ABS standards for offshore yachts. Hulls are molded of knitted triaxial roving, offering vastly superior impact and puncture resistance compared to conventional woven rovings or cored construction. Deck laminates are engineered for high-strength with reduced weight, utilizing Island Packet's exclusive PolyCore system. Interior construction features an engineered grid system and reinforced fiberglass structure fully bonded with the hull to form a unit structure of immense strength and durability.
