1995 40' Island Packet 40

Breathless is a beautiful example of one of Island Packet's most loved cruising designs. With her beautiful blue hull and "oyster" canvas, she is striking.

Breathless is a beautiful girl but, will need some new hoses before any serious use.  The owner is moving out of the area and has priced her accordingly to reflect that needed work.

The Island Packet 40 has one of the nicest interiors designed to date. The forward cabin is the owners cabin and has a large pullman style berth to starboard with a bank of drawers underneath. There are shelves and storage compartments to port. The private head is forward, in the bow. The main saloon is large and bright with bulkhead mounted table, facing settees and aft facing nav station. Breathless has had additional woodworking and custom mounts for electronics. The aft cabin is to the port of the companionway and is well ventilated and roomy. The guest head, which is forward of the aft cabin, is accessed from either the aft cabin or saloon. The galley ,located to starboard of the companionway, offers plenty of storage and counter-space for the cook. This is a great passage-making layout. Upon descending the companionway steps you can have direct access to the galley, head, nav station and aft cabin. It's all right there.
