EQUIPMENT AND ACCOMMODATIONS
The Island Packet 485 remains the “flagship” of the Island Packet line and TALALA is a tribute to what can be done with an Island Packet 485. TALALA was immaculately commissioned and customized, with a wide variety of owner enhancements that elevate this yacht above anything on the market. With precise planning and factory-perfect installations, you'll be hard pressed to believe everything was not done during the initial build. Split air conditioning systems installations separate the noisy compressors from the living quarters and preserves valuable interior storage space while custom cabinetry abounds to conceal ducts, wires and other "systems" from view while adding additional storage space.
The second owner of this yacht has honored the first owner by taking meticulous care of this hull, while improving and updating systems to keep the boat current and looking new. A recently completed refit, done in preparation for sale, has kept this yacht special and includes the following:
- All new Raymarine Instrumentation
- New canvas enclosure for the hard bimini (screens, vinyl and soft covers)
- New varnish on exterior wood (special non-skid texture on all teak steps)
- New Vacuflush vacuum generators fore and aft plus a new head forward
- LED running lights
- New engine and generator start batteries
- Service on both engine and generator
TALALA should be on your "must see" list if you are planning on some serious cruising! This beauty will not last long.
When first approached from the dock, TALALA appears to be a yacht that was just commissioned and presented to her owners. Instead, she is a yacht that has been used weekly but maintained in excellent by her owners. This yacht is equipped with all of the available exterior options including, bow thruster, electric winch package, electric windlass and Extendo boom (for lifting a dingy out of the water and onto the aft deck). The custom hard bimini top with enclosure creates a weather and bug proof outdoor living space. All sail control lines run to the cockpit, for ease of handling, with the knot, wind and depth instruments mounted above the companionway and the radar/ chart plotter mounted at the helm. All running rigging replaced early 2018. Also, you will note the custom teak and Plexiglas café style doors; drop-in companionway boards are still aboard as well.
When entering the bright airy Salon your first impression is how spacious this area is. The combination of the light colored cushions, plenty of natural light and the ability to stow the dinette table against the fwd bulkhead help to make the salon feel open and spacious. With the dinette table down and fully-extended you can comfortably entertain a large group. If extra space is needed, to accommodate additional overnight guests, the port settee pulls out and converts to a double berth. The cushions are covered with beige ultra-leather and the cabin soles are solid teak and oak (not veneer) providing a striking contrast. A new TV swivel-mounted on the forward bulkhead and a DVD player provides entertainment along with a Fusion stereo system with Bose speakers in the main salon, additional speakers in cockpit and brand new speakers on arch..
The Navigation Station is aft of the salon on the port side. It features a high-back swivel seat and a desk with storage tray. The nav station houses the AC/DC panel, electronics, and a wet hanging locker.
The large Galley is located on the starboard side between the companionway and the aft cabin. Whether you are doing long distance cruising or entertaining at the docks, the galley does it all. The galley is equipped with two (2) refrigerator/freezers, each with separate compressors and controls, enabling the owner to make either box a refrigerator or freezer. There is also a separate pull-out refrigerated drink drawer with dedicated controls. The three-burner Force 10 LPG stove w/oven and broiler (brolier heating element new August 2022) has sealed burners for easy cleaning, as well as a retracting door to prevent tipping when gimballed. On the inboard island is plenty of open counter space. To finish this area there is a deep double bowl sink, fresh water hand pump, and a custom storage cabinets throughout for additional items. The countertops are beautifully finished with a one-piece molded fiddle to aid in cleaning and keeping a neat and orderly galley when underway. The cabin sole is made of a molded nonskid for easy maintenance and a sure-footed feel. TALALA also features a custom-built trash container, complete with a solid acrylic top to match the rest of the galley countertops.
Moving aft you enter the Owner's Stateroom. The focal point of this cabin is a queen-sized island berth with an upholstered, memory foam mattress. Again this is a very bright and airy cabin with lots of headroom. There are (6) opening ports and a large overhead hatch to provide both natural ventilation and light. On the starboard side is a built-in chair flanked by large cedar-lined hanging lockers and shelved storage. There is a large pull-out drawer beneath the berth and the bottom of the berth opens up, with the assistance of gas struts, to provide access a large blanket storage area. Access to the large aft deck locker is also provided through a gasketed door on the aft bulkhead.
The Owner's Head is located on the port side. It features a VacuFlush toilet, molded shower stall, with a seat and folding acrylic door, a vanity with a one-piece molded countertop, shelves, a mirror and plenty of ventilation (new vacuum generator August 2022).
The comfortable Forward Stateroom offers a double island berth, lockers, shelves to port and starboard, excellent ventilation and direct access to the Guest Head. The base of the berth lifts up for storage and there are two pull-out drawers. Excellent ventilation and natural light make the forward stateroom a comfortable space to spend time.
The Guest Head is accessible from both the forward stateroom and the Salon. The countertop is a one-piece acrylic with molded-in fiddles and a stainless steel sink. The head has a freshwater VacuFlush unit with a dedicated water tank (new vacuum generator and toilet August 2022). The large shower stall has a bi-fold acrylic door and a teak seat.
The Third Cabin is the most functional space on the boat. It has a large counter-top, washer/dryer combo, icemaker, tool box and plenty of storage for spares and supplies.
