About this Island Packet 29

Remarks : If you are looking for a stable, comfortable, well built, well equipped cruising yacht, capable of going distance or blue water sailing then look no further. This Island Packet 29 is in superb condition and has been maintained to a high standard. She is currently ashore having had a complete hull polish, hull antifoul and a NEW electric windlass fitted. The cockpit is well laid out and features wheel steering and bespoke cockpit cushions for comfort. Keel stepped aluminium rig with stainless steel standing rigging. Good suit of sails including battened main with lazy jacks/bag, furling headsail and inner furling jib. All lines are led aft making short handed sailing very easy indeed. Engine is a very economical and reliable Yanmar 3GM30 inboard diesel with reduction gearbox and three bladed feathering propeller. This 27hp unit has plenty of power and will push against all known tides. Below decks is warm, welcoming and very comfortable. This is mainly down to the teak and mahogany woodwork and programmable Eberspacher heating. Accommodation : You could quite easily use a dictionary's worth of superlatives when describing the interior of this boat. Everything feels big, over engineered and above all useful. The headroom for a start is 1.90 meters meaning crouching or stooping is minimised. The companionway entrance is wide and the three piece washboards, not only lock in place, but don't feel they will blow away in the gentlest of breezes. The interior is warm teak with soft neutral fabrics covering well upholstered foam. The floor is classy "teak and holly" and the ceiling is easy clean GRP. The port-lights provide excellent ventilation and can be fitted with mosquito screens should the need arise.  The galley is to starboard and has a gas fuelled oven with two burner grill. The cooker is fitted with a removable protective cover which finishes the work surfaces. There is a huge refrigerated cool box with ice compartment. This will store plentiful perishables for extended cruising. Large stainless steel sink with pressurised water and a top loading storage larder complete the picture. There is a clever work surface extension that can act as an occasional table or extra prep area. On the port side and aft is a large double berth. The end of this berth becomes the chart table seat and the "chart table" swings up in place. Situated here is the 12/240V panel with battery and tankage indicators, chart reading light and Chart plotter. The saloon features settee/berths port and starboard. The port settee cleverly pulls out to make a large double. To assist the room required to do so the saloon table folds away against the forward bulkhead. When lowered this revels a shelved area and bottle storage area. The table is extendable if required and creates a large dining area. Moving forward you will find a large heads compartment on the port side. This area has a sea toilet, sink with pressurised hot and cold water, Shower faucet and pump out. There is a wooden seat that can be lowered and utilised when showering. In the bow is the other double berth with removable infill cushion. This area can be shut off with a bi-folding privacy door if required. There is also a hanging wardrobe and drawer storage. The boat is fitted with plentiful hull mounted storage cupboards, storage areas beneath the settees and numerous 12V lights. Inventory : Well equipped boat suitable for coastal and off-shore cruising. Included in the sale are: Electronic Navigation Aids: Raymarine E80 Chart Plotter Icom VHF B&G Autopilot B&G Depth sounder B&G Wind speed/direction B&G Log/Speed KS Navtex Ritchie Compass Safety Equipment: Clock & Barometer set Radar reflector Life sling Lifebouy with holder and light Danbuoy with holder Assorted wooden bungs Fire extinguishers Fire blanket Electric and Manual bilge pumps Flare pack Compressed air horn General Chandlery: Warps and fenders Large mooring buoy/fender Motoring cone and anchor ball daylight signals Delta Anchor Fishermans style anchor Boarding ladder Cockpit shower Wheel cover Dodgers Sprayhood Cockpit canopy/tent Mechanical and Rigging : Engine & Electrics: Vessel powered by a very economical and powerful Yanmar 3GM30 inboard diesel engine. Engine housed in a sound and fire proofed compartment beneath the companionway steps. This allows access to both the front sides and rear of the engine for servicing and daily checks. Engine has been regularly maintained with most recent service completed in 2015. Low total engine hours. Reduction gearbox driving 3-bladed feathering propeller. This is highly efficient and increases thrust whilst minimising drag. Fuel is stored in an aluminium tank with access panel. The tank is fitted with an electronic sender unit to gauge at switch panel. Tank fitted with emergency fuel cut-off valve. 12/240V system with bank of three deep-cycle marine batteries. These provide engine start and domestic power. These are fitted with isolators and are recharged via the engine alternator or the battery charger when attached to shore power. 12/240V panel at chart table with switches for 12V and 240V functions. Mast & Rigging: Keel stepped aluminium masthead rig with aluminium boom and stainless steel standing rigging. The vessel is current sailed as a sloop but has the additional inner stay with furling gear to revert to cutter if desired. When sailed as a sloop, there are lashing points on foredeck to store folded dinghy at front of coachroof. Battened, slab reefing mainsail with lazy bag and protective boot. Both furling genoa and furling inner jib are removed and are available to view in the forward cabin. Cruising chute with snuffer stored in bag in cockpit locker. All lines are led aft making single or short-handed sailing very easy indeed. The running rigging is in good order and although the standing rigging was replaced in 2006, the boat has not sailed over the past 5-6 years and will not need replacing for some time. The mainsail, Genoa and inner jib are in heavy cruising Dacron and by Esprit sails. Although original they are in great condition and will provide good service for a good few seasons. Colour-matched cruising chute and matching snuffer by Jeckells. This was purchased in 2006, has been little used, and is in great condition. Construction: GRP heavy layup with cream flow-coat topsides and deck. Long keel with counter-hung rudder attached to keel by prop protecting bar. Rack & pinion (not cable) wheel steering - direct and almost bulletproof. Underwater areas antifouled in black in May 2016 and hull topsides polished. Large self bailing cockpit with deep locker stowage to starboard. Large stainless steel rails to stern offering protection. Comfortable cockpit with bespoke cushions. Helm clip-on and in-cockpit jackstay fixing points. Wide easy access side decks allowing safe passage forward. Wooden plank bowsprit with double anchor roller and bow protection rails. Teak topped cockpit gunwales and toe rails. Bow. stern and mid-ship cleats for easy mooring.
