The Island Packet 420 is a comfortable, two-stateroom yacht with the owner's stateroom forward, featuring an en suite head. The second cabin is located in the aft section of the vessel, and has a private entry to the day-head, located on the port side of the companionway. It is a sensible design, for comfort at sea or at anchor. The layout from bow to stern is as follows:
Anchor Locker: Starting forward is a large anchor locker with interior access through a tall door in the forward head. The divided anchor-well easily accommodates ground tackle, plus there is a storage area aft, large enough to store a third anchor, fenders, dock-lines, cleaning supplies, etc.
Forward Head: located just aft of the anchor locker, and features a separate shower stall with acrylic door, a deep S/S sink with vanity, several lockers and drawers and excellent ventilation with an overhead hatch and opening portlights.
Forward Owner's Stateroom: utilizes the entire beam of the yacht, making for a roomy and and inviting retreat. The large island berth is offset from the hull, providing easy access from both sides. The foot of the berth lifts up for storage. Additional cabinets, drawers, bins, and a deep hanging locker provide ample storage. There are two screened large overhead hatches and screened opening port-lights for excellent ventilation.
Main Salon: featuring Island Packet's signature bulkhead-mounted fold-up table. With the table up, the salon becomes a spacious and inviting space for living, relaxing and entertaining. Lowering the table reveals additional storage, which many use as a wine cellar. The starboard settee pulls out to provide a double berth. There are huge storage areas behind and beneath the settees.
Navigation Station: Next aft to starboard is the nav station with a large hinged chart table. The main electrical panel, monitors, VHF radio and other instruments are all within easy reach. There is a chair for the nav station that slides in/out with a touch of a button.
Galley: The large U-shaped galley, immediately to the starboard side of the companionway, features double S/S sinks, gimbaled cooktop/oven, a generous wrap around counter space, and a large refrigerator and freezer. There is abundant storage for dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, and food items.
Aft Stateroom: The aft guest stateroom has a wide double berth, ample storage in a cedar-lined hanging locker and bureau, and private entrance to the aft head compartment.
Aft Head: To port is the aft head with entry from the salon or aft cabin, shower with teak seat and wrap-around curtain, vanity with and S/S sink, large mirror, excellent ventilation.
Cockpit: Comfortable for sailing or just relaxing. The cockpit seats are ergonomically designed and long enough for sleeping. There are stern rail "catbird" seats to port and starboard. A sugar scoop on the transom for ease of dinghy boarding and swimming. Sail control lines are led aft, making sail trim convenient from the cockpit. Bins located at the forward end of both coamings have hinged tops and provide storage for these lines.
There is plenty of counter space and storage. There is non-skid on the sole which works very well in this area. The overhead hatch is located underneath the dodger and can be kept open for ventilation even in bad weather.
