1995 Island Packet 40

Stuart FL, US




“Island Breeze”

Sail Away to the Islands on this Island Breeze


Lovingly Maintained Island Packet 40 is ready for her next Blue Water Adventure

This ideal yacht is the perfect choice for blue water sailing with her Cutter Rig, Shallow Draft, & Protected Rudder.   It’s easy to see why the IP40 is sought after by the cruising community. 

Cutter Rig – Wide choice of sail plans

Integral Hull Full Foil Keel – Strongest Construction, spirited performance, exceptional stability

Direct Steering – Rack and pinion steering provides superior reliability without giving up the feel of the rudder

Protected Propeller and Rudder –  Rudder design protects the propeller and minimizes damage from fouling.

Moderate Draft – Perfect for gunk-holing or voyaging across the ocean.  

The owners have owned her for almost 9 years and enjoyed sailing her in the Bahamas and Florida while all along making sure to keep her well maintained, clean, and in great overall condition.  The interior woodwork looks almost new, upholstery is in excellent condition and the bilge areas are cleaner than any boat I’ve ever seen.  

The space for provisions, guests, and equipment is abundant.  One of the most noticeable things is the amount of natural light and ventilation with all the opening ports, hatches, and the cowl vents.  

Nice improvement include two solar panels which provide 280 watts, a dinghy motor hoist, and motor mount on the stern pulpit.  A connector between the dodger and the Bimini increases the usable space in the cockpit on days where the sunshine is too much or a small rainstorm makes the cockpit a nice place to enjoy a quiet anchorage. 


Island Breeze still has a shiny hull and she has been hauled every year. A fresh coat of CSC has been applied every two years.

You will not be disappointed in her condition and she is worth your consideration.

A new Highfield 310 dinghy and a Yamaha 15 hp 2 stroke motor is negotiable but not included in the sale.
