The raised MAIN SALON of the 445 is luxurious and spacious. The panoramic views through large salon windows and seven feet of headroom offer a beautiful space for relaxing and entertaining. There are two full length Ultra Leather settees port and starboard. The port settee extends to the center line to make a double berth. The salon table is stowed against the forward bulkhead or folded out for dining and entertaining. The salon is well lit with an abundance of recessed LED lighting and reading lamps all lights are on dimmer switches

The Gourmet Galley aboard the Island Packet 445 offers a wonderful environment for preparing meals. The open layout and opening port lights on each side of the galley keep this space light and airy. The top-loading refrigerator and freezer provide generous cold storage and both are digitally controlled. To quickly access popular beverages and food a pull-out refrigerated drawer is located beneath the refrigerator. A Force 10 three burner stove/oven and microwave are available for cooking. Beautiful Corian counter tops with integral sea fiddles run throughout the galley. Storage is very generous in the form of built-in dish racks, cutlery drawers and teak cabinets. 

A highlight to this yacht is the deluxe Navigation Center adjacent to the galley. This spacious alcove features a high back swivel armchair, an inlaid chart table with storage tray and chart storage behind the armchair. The master AC/DC electrical panels are easily accessible and all electronics are within easy reach of the navigation desk. 

Both the Aft and Forward Staterooms are sizable and perfect for living aboard or cruising. It's difficult to call one the master, both staterooms include wide double island berths that are surrounded by an array of teak cabinets, lockers, drawers and shelves. Numerous opening ports, large overhead hatches and deck vents, provide plenty of light and ventilation. Underneath both berths are large storage areas for clothes, spares, tools, sails, safety gear, etc..
