General Information For The IP440
Island Packet 440
The Island Packet 440 combines the superior comfort, ease of use and seakeeping and safety attributes that are the hallmark of every Island Packet Yacht along with the stunning good looks of its classic design. You?ll be turning heads (and sailing past other yachts) all around the world. This world cruiser is capable of long distance days. The interior layout of the 440 makes it perfect for the couple that wants a family retreat or live aboard. Both cabins feature island berths so that neither of you wake the other when getting out of bed. A long list of other interior amenities put this yacht in a class by itself. From the stainless steel ports to the protected prop and rudder, every detail on the Island Packet 440 reinforces our dedication to raising the benchmark for cruising sailors. This aft cockpit design, and its predecessors, have been among the favorite Island Packets ever built. The geared rack and pinion steering system, proven through millions of miles of all types of cruising, provides sensitive and responsive control with rugged reliability and a minimum of maintenance.
