Accommodations & Broker's Notes

"Voyageur" is the ultimate cruising sailboat for a family or for a couple who likes to entertain. Her spacious interior makes her feel much larger than your average forty-footer, and her current owners have worked hard to make her feel like a home on the water.

Upon entering the companionway, a large salon opens up before you, with Island Packet's signature fold-down table that can be stowed against the bulkhead if you need extra space or fully expanded to seat 6 comfortably for dinner. Aft of the salon to starboard, "Voyageur's" owners have crafted a unique navigation station that is far more efficient that what the original boat had. All electronics are nicely mounted and contained within one area. Aft of this, her galley is big enough for two (even though most chefs prefer to be on their own!). Meal preparation at sea is easy aboard this boat. 

Aft of the salon and to port is a large head with two doors (one opening to the salon and one to the aft cabin) and an aft cabin with a double berth and a large amount of storage. Two couples could cruise together in great comfort and with plenty of privacy with this layout!

Forward of the salon the signature Island Packet layout continues, with a double master berth to starboard and a second full head in the forepeak. All throughout, storage is ample and the boat is spacious and comfortable. 

Like all Island Packets, her joinery and craftsmanship is superb. Her owners have worked hard to make her into a home and a reliable cruiser, and you can benefit from their hard work. They have loved her and taken great care of her. Come see her today!
