Our Lass is not your "cookie cutter" IP 420.  Her interior is cozy and really well suited to spending a lot of time on board.  Not only is her interior warm and inviting but, her equipment makes her well suited and ready to cruise.

Starting forward is the owner's suite.  A forward head provides the usual sink and marine toilet but, also has a dedicated area for showering.  Not a wet head!

Next aft is the master cabin itself.  With a queen bed (pick up the bottom of the bed to see massive storage inderneath) and....a 37" flat screen TV which has a sound system with sub woofer.

The saloon is next aft and, as you can see in the pictures, is a warm and inviting place to lounge or entertain.  There is a customized settee to port that allows the center cushion to double as a table for drinks or whatever.

On the starboard side aft in the saloon is the designated nav station with swing out seat.  This seat has been upgraded to include a higher back on the seat, making it more comfortable and safe.

Now...on to the galley.  This galley has been highly customized by Hinckley craftsman.  Custom corian is everywhere....the galley sink is now a larger single....custom sliding doors increase storage and small details are worth noting. ( Repurposed piano keys are featured on the door handles)  Knife storage and an additional cabnet under the companionway stairs improve the usability of the galley.

Opposite the galley and to the port of the companionway is the aft head for day/ guest use.  

Aft of the head is the second cabin with very large pullman style athwartship berth.

As with all Island Packets, the storage (especially in the main saloon) is unmatched.  Each cabin head and the saloon have opening overhead hatches and opening stainless steel ports...all with screens.  The boat ventilates beautifully.

Our Lass awaits your inspection....

Sails & Rigging

The IP 420 has an easily handled cutter rig that offers versatility in adverse conditions.  All lines have been led aft.  Her main is in mast furling, and both the headsail and staysail are furling.  The staysail becomes more of an asset thanks to the Hoyt designed staysail boom.

  • All winches cleaned and serviced (2021)

  • All lines led aft to cockpit

Deck and Hull

Island Packet Yachts are known for their inorganically cored decks.  That means you will never have to worry about wood holding moisture and ultimately resulting in delamination.

Their hull is solid fiberglass with several layers of tri-axel roving glass.  Again, this results in more strength and lighter weight.   The keel is integral and is not bolted on and protects your running gear and rudder. 

Owners of Our Lass decided to have a brand new steering mechanism installed in 2019, just because of a little play in the system that can develope over time.  It is the same steering system that came with her as a new boat.  There was no damage that required it.  The pedestal was painted and a new throttle was installed, while they were in there.

 They are well designed for safety and cruising!!

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Island Packet 420 defines Island Packet designs in every aspect, while also representing a significant evolution from earlier models in this size range. With ongoing advances in construction technology, equipment selection, manufacturing processes, and quality control measures, the 420 is one of the most desirable and best built yachts Island Packet has ever offered. The 420 hull incorporates a host of design elements that improve a concept that emphasizes seakeeping, safety, stability, and speed. The bow and stern configurations combine to increase boat speed through a longer sailing waterline and reduced resistance in waves, while refinements to the keel and rudder foil sections benefit upwind performance, reduce drag, and enhance steering. The hull continues to be molded as a one-piece (integral hull and keel) solid tri-axial fiberglass structure, utilizing Island Packet's pressure-fed resin impregnation system, PolyClad 2 gel below the waterline, and DuraShield gel on the topsides. The 420 deck design offers all the key features long appreciated by Island Packet owners: recessed foredeck with bulwarks, anchor platform with two rollers (the exclusive SeaSafe patented design), full-length stainless steel cabin top handrails, beautifully molded detail for hardware, an improved dodger - windshield mount, and Dorade vents with stainless steel cowls and welded guards. The cockpit offers long, contoured seats with big lockers under push-button latch seat hatches with gas support struts, an insulated beverage box, hand-held shower, separate helm seat with backrest and premium rack and pinion pedestal mounted steering (with provision for auto pilot), molded stern rail seats, and a central gate leading to a stern platform. As always, sail control lines are led aft making sail trim or changes convenient from the cockpit. Bins located at the forward end of both coamings have hinged tops and provide handy and neat storage for these lines. With the available option of a roller furling mainsail, sailing has become easier and more enjoyable than ever. It's a real pleasure to be able to quickly set, trim, or stow the sails without leaving the cockpit. While on the subject of the rig, the Island Packet 420 has been created with a somewhat taller configuration to take advantage of her extra sail carrying ability and to enhance both light air and upwind performance. The contributions to performance and sail control from the Hoyt staysail boom would be hard to overstate. This simple device has "turbo-charged" the staysail's contribution to overall performance and makes the cutter rig better than ever. The 420 should have excellent qualities for cruising under all points of sail in a wide variety of conditions with a very manageable and versatile rig. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the Island Packet 420 is the interior arrangement. The beam of over 14 feet and a lot of usable hull length, have enabled Island Packet to create very spacious accommodations with all the amenities that owners are looking for, along with lots of storage space and large tank capacities to meet the demands of extended cruising. The owner's quarters are located forward and include a private head compartment with stall shower. The stateroom introduces an arrangement with a large double berth offset to starboard and angled away from the hull side to allow access from either side. The berth top is hinged and supported with gas struts and may be raised to access a generous storage bin underneath for blankets and the like. Additional drawers, bureaus, shelves, and a cedar lined hanging locker provide ample room for personal items. A dressing seat adds further convenience, and two deck hatches, a Dorade vent, and several opening ports will keep this area bright and breezy, as are all other areas throughout the interior. The adjoining head has a sink vanity with cabinet space over and under, "captain's-chair" seating for the toilet, and built-in medicine chest and linen drawers. The shower includes a molded seat and folding textured acrylic door that stows flat against the bulkhead when not in use. Space (and access) has been provided for owner - dealer installation of a bow thruster under the shower seat area. The big forepeak is reached through a tall bulkhead door in the shower area. This area is unique in that it features Island Packet's usual divided chain locker forward (prepared for windlass installation and chain control), plus a separate area immediately aft that will be handy for storage of items like fenders, extra anchors, and rodes, etc. when underway. The aft guest stateroom has a wide double berth, ample storage in a hanging locker and bureau, and private entrance to the aft head compartment. The aft head may also be accessed from the salon area, and includes a shower with curtained enclosure and folding seat over the toilet. The sink vanity has cabinet storage over and under and, as with the forward head, is finished in light colored Formica laminates with varnished teak trim for an attractive, bright, and practical finish. Shower drains in both heads have an electric drain pump discharging overboard, with sole drains configured to work at rest or under sail. The main salon is notable for its overall spaciousness. Once again, the popular arrangement of full-length, facing settees is incorporated, with the starboard L-shaped settee able to convert into a double berth with a pull-out extension. Island Packet's trademark folding dining table hinges from the bulkhead storage rack to provide for either a large serving - dining area or, when retracted, a completely open salon. Large storage areas are available under and behind both port and starboard settees, in cabinets outboard, and above the settees, and in a cedar lined hanging locker. Large capacity tanks for water, fuel, and waste are located under the sole, keeping these considerable weights low and close to the center of the yacht to maximize stability, minimize trim changes, and increase useful storage elsewhere. The full-size navigation table with swing-out seat - adjacent to the main salon - should please the most ardent navigator, and includes recessed master electrical distribution panels, with numerous spare breakers and ample panel space for dealer - owner installed electronics. A storage tray is provided under the hinged tabletop, with a locker under and outboard of the table, and a chart drawer under the settee immediately forward of the nav area. The Island Packet 420 galley combines the best features of all previous Island Packet models and is notable for its generous counter space, storage room, and numerous convenience features. The recently developed ice box installation - with hinged and double gasketed push-button latch lid, and super-insulated box - is factory prepared for dealer - owner installation of refrigeration. There's plenty of room for block ice if preferred, or capacity for extra refrigerated storage on longer voyages. This installation was developed jointly with a professional refrigeration manufacturer, and tested by an independent lab during its development. It has resulted in the best insulating qualities of any marine ice box the lab has tested (and they've done quite a few). Seaward's recently introduced sealed-top LPG range is standard, along with a microwave oven (A-C operation only). Several deep storage drawers, a pull-out trash receptacle, dish rack with cutlery drawers, pot and pan bin, dry storage lockers, and counter top cabinets should make one feel right at home. All sole surfaces in the galley, companionway, and navigation areas are molded in a slip-resistant diamond pattern for improved safety and ease of maintenance in these frequently used areas. A teak grate in the sole covers a lift-out dust tray, as well as access to the fuel and water tank fittings and the lighted bilge sump.
