Many believe the Island Packet 40 to be the best of Bob Johnson's designs. This beautiful bluewater cruiser features spacious and liveable accomodations with a 2-head, 2-stateroom layout. The owner's suite is forward with a large pullman berth with mattress to starboard and private head with shower. The owner's suite features excellent ventilation and ample storage with bins and drawers underneath the berth plus bureau drawers and a cedar-lined hanging locker to port. Next aft is the spacious main salon with Island Packet's signature bulkhead-mounted fold-up table. The L-shaped settee to starboard pulls out to make a double berth. To port is a straight settee and cedar-lined hanging locker. The UltraLeather settee cushions were new in 2016. Aft is a nav station with large desk and instrument panel. The aft head follows to port and is accessible from both the salon and aft stateroom. To starboard of the companionway is the large galley with 3-burner propane stove with oven, double S/S sinks, refrigerator/freezer and ample storage. To port of the companionway is the entrance to the aft stateroom featuring extra large berth, storage bins and drawers and cedar-lined hanging locker. "Ship Shades" on all portlights provide privacy and sun protection. The engine is under the companionway and is easily accessible from all four sides. The cockpit is large and comfortable with cockpit seats that are easily long enough for lounging or sleeping.
