The 379 is the result of decades of Island Packet design refinement and evolution. It combines innovative and proven features with all the exemplary construction qualities that have made Island Packet yachts respected and admired around the world.

A host of exclusive design features, including our self tending staysail, geared steering system and time honored Full Foil Keel®, all combine to provide superior seakeeping and delightful sailing qualities that will be appreciated as much by the weekend sailor as by the couple cruising the world.

From the large, comfortable cockpit to the broad anchor platform, there are numerous deck features on the 379 to appreciate. Wide side decks, strategically placed hand rails and recessed foredecks maximize your feeling of confidence and safety on deck.

Below decks the 379 continues Island Packet’s reputation for luxurious comfort. Perfect for an evening retreat or gracious entertaining, the main saloon features our versatile dining table that folds and stows against a bulkhead bottle rack, opening up the area for socializing. To add even more flexibility for entertaining, a smaller removable table with a lift-out post is available for mounting at either side of the saloon. 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 379 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 saloon when desired.

The open “U-shaped” design of the 379 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 379 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. Island Packet continues to set the benchmarks for excellence in design, construction and value and the 379 advances this tradition.
