Island Packet 490

The award-winning aft cockpit 490 combines comfort and safety, along with the stunning good looks of its classic design. This world cruiser is capable of long-distance days offshore, but is equally at home exploring coastal waters and for living aboard. A long list of amenities and unique design features put this yacht in a class by itself. From our patented SeaSafe™ anchor rollers to the Full Foil Keel™ with protected prop and rudder, every detail reinforces our dedication to raising the benchmark for cruising sailors.
