Island Packet 465

Exceptional livability and practical cruising features

The large center cockpit provides more than just a comfortable place for your crew to congregate. It provides a safe working area from which you can perform all the necessary adjustments underway. Wide side decks, strategically placed hand rails and recessed foredecks maximize your safety on deck.

As beautiful as the 465 is to behold, its even more appealing below decks. The expansive main saloon boasts more than seven feet of headroom, a well-appointed combination of hand crafted teak furnishings, cabinetry and storage, a nav station that would excite any world cruiser, a gourmet galley fit for a master chef and two of the most spacious staterooms youll find anywhere.

Entering via the comfortably angled companionway steps, your attention will be drawn to full-length settees. The port settee extends to the centerline to make a double berth, and both settees can be used as sea berths. The large main dining table stows against a bulkhead wine rack, opening up the area for socializing. A smaller, removable table is also available, which mounts on either side of the saloon for added flexibility while dining or entertaining. CE Category A Ocean rated safety windows provide a panoramic view and overhead lights and numerous reading lamps with individual dimmers are found throughout.

Adjacent to the companionway is the deluxe navigation center. Featuring a high-backed swivel armchair, an inlaid chart table and storage tray and cabinetry space sufficient to mount a wide variety of electronic equipment, this area will impress even the most experienced cruiser. There's also a wet locker within arms reach.

The gourmet galley includes opening ports on either side to keep it light and airy. The top-loading refrigerator and freezer compartments, with digitally controlled cooling units, provide generous cold storage.

Either compartment may be used for refrigerated or frozen storage by the setting of the controls. A pull-out refrigerated drawer is also included for quick access to popular beverages and food.

Two spacious staterooms and abundant storage make the 465 as well suited for coastal harbor hopping as for living aboard or world cruising. The owners stateroom aft includes a double island berth and a large hanging locker with extra height rods outboard provides abundant clothes storage. Access to the large lazarette is available through the aft bulkhead.

Forward is a spacious guest stateroom also featuring a double island berth and plentiful storage. Both staterooms include numerous opening ports, large overhead hatches and deck vents to provide plenty of light and ventilation. Both berths are surrounded by an array of cabinets, lockers, drawers and shelves, and each berth includes a large hinged lid that opens to reveal a blanket storage area.

Both luxurious heads feature vanities with solid acrylic countertops, separate shower stalls with folding acrylic doors and standard VacuFlush heads.

Exclusive design features like our Full Foil Keel give the 465 the exceptional stability and inherent easy motion that typify our dedication to your cruising safety and comfortoffshore or at the dock.
