Vessel Overview

Below decks the 370 continues Island Packet’s reputation for luxurious comfort. Perfect for an evening retreat or gracious entertaining, the main salon features a versatile dining table that folds and stows against a bulkhead bottle rack, opening up the area for socializing.

Full length port and starboard seating areas are both comfortable and practical, double as sea berths and the port settee conveniently converts to a double berth. 

Generous storage is available both under and outboard of the settees and throughout the entire yacht. One of the more notable features of the 370 is the versatility of the aft cabin. Cleverly configured for great sleeping accommodations, this multi-use area is truly unique due to the desk area, which can be used as a vanity, a navigation station, or a work station.

The nav table top lifts to reveal a storage tray and vanity mirror mounted on its underside. A swing-out seat is controlled with the push of a button, while a removable hinged panel in the forward bulkhead opens and joins this area with the salon when desired.

The open “U-shaped” design of the 370 galley is notable for its generous space and numerous convenience features. The fridge and freezer compartments feature dual Frigoboat® cooling units and individual digital controls. Either compartment may be used for refrigerated or frozen storage by the setting of the controls.

Designed with accommodations for extended cruising, the 370 is one of the only yachts in her class to boast large island berths in both staterooms. With plenty of elbow and headroom, cedar-lined hanging lockers, bureaus, wide shelves and blanket bins under hinged bunk lids, both forward and aft areas easily qualify as master staterooms.
Luxury and comfort have been carefully considered in the head area as well. The separate stall shower features a folding acrylic door and ample storage is provided by the
built-in vanity. Doors from both the forward stateroom and the main saloon provide both utility and privacy.
