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
