This is the yacht you've been waiting for... Arguably among the world's best Bluewater cruising yachts, the Island Packet 420 is an incredibly stable and safe sailing vessel with spacious, comfortable cockpit and very roomy interior.

If you're looking for a reliable sailing yacht that is capable of sailing anywhere on the globe, look no further. Island Packets are structurally designed for comfortable ocean sailing with a full length keel and skeg hung rudder, suitable for short handed crew.

With a full length keel and skeg hung rudder, the cutter rig offers varying sail configurations allowing you to sail fast and smooth with the combination of yankee and staysail or more cautiously in heavy weather with just the staysail. Sail deployment is made all the easier with the aid of an electric primary winch while the dedicated self tacking boom gives you more options, impressive performane and very enjoyable sailing.

At the helm, Ansoba powers forward effortlessly under sail and also under power with a Yanmar 75hp turbo which has been well serviced and maintained. To aid manoeuvring she is fitted with a side bow thruster which is controlled from the console. Her current owners have fitted a Raymarine touch hybrid chart plotter at the helm.

One of the best features (and there are many) is her large roomy cockpit which is well lit at night but offers excellent visibility under sail with or without the infill strip.

Her current owners love her spacious cockpit. They raised the targa arch to allow for extra headroom upgraded the canvas and fitted 4 new solar panels on the bimini with a new victron solar regulator. They also upgraded her house battery bank (4 x 120ah) and thruster/windlass battery to ensure they would have no power concersn when cruising remotely for extended periods.

Below decks she opens like a Tardis with a very warm polished timber interior with classic blue upholstery. Another feature of the Island Packet 420 is the table which folds away offering more roomy cabin than you would expect to find on a yacht of this size. Both cabins are well appointed with a lot of storage options and large queen size beds with en suites. 'Ansoba' comes fully equipped with everything a demanding world cruising couple or family may need.

Features include new sails, rigging, new dinghy & outboard - 2018, new windlass and chain - 2018, all new canvas and targa arch, Raymarine plotter, Sinewave inverter, Spectra water maker, 4xsolar panels - all new 2018. Full inventory availalbe below.

The Island Packet 420 has an incredibly open, airy and spacious interior with a unique cabin layout below. Natural light and air flows through the many hatches and opening ports* that give the IP its distinctive look and aesthetic appeal. Added by a retractable double leaf dining table that stows neatly against the main bulkhead, the roomy saloon offers easy free movement below decks and lush settees for relaxing.

The well apointed galley offers protection when at sea and comes complete with a double fridge. Freezer, microwave and 3-burner stove.

The IPs also offer really great storage in both cabins in drawers, lockers and hanging wardrobes, aswell as under settees (and in deep cockpit lockers). ) *Fly screens available for all opening ports and hatches.
The Master suite is forward with an island bed offset to starboard with opening hatch above for light and air. Storage lockers and drawers, Caframo fan and reading lights make for a very comfortable cabin. This opens into a very large private ensuite with separate shower (which also provides access to the bow locker, windlass and bow thruster motors). There is even a full length mirror behind the cabin door. The guest cabin (aft) is offset to port, and equally roomy and comfortable with its own private ensuite which is also accessible from the saloon.
The saloon setees offer two additional sleeping berths - one double (pullout) and one single. There is also the option of sleeping under the stars thanks to a very elongated cockpit with the option of full or partial cover - for those warmer nights.
