Terra Firma is a 1999 Island Packet 380 Completely Setup for Cruising



Terra Firma is currently in Lima, Peru getting brand new bottom paint, general maintenance items taken care of and a few repairs and cosmetic improvements.  She has been lovingly cared for and looks like a new boat.  If you or someone you know is in the market for a truely remarkable, single-owner cruising boat, Terra Firma is your girl.

A few of the items added to the stock configuration are:

  • Village Marine Tech Water Maker
  • Two 120W Solar Panels
  • Southwest Wind Power Air X Marine Wind Generator
  • Hydrovane Wind Vane Self-Steering System
  • Technautics holding plate refrigerator / freezer system
  • Seagull water filtration system at the galley sink
  • An awesome entertainment system (audio and video)
  • Navigation Computer with MaxSea and C-MAPs (both licensed)
  • Much, much, much more!
'Well, why would I want my boat in Lima, Peru?'  Here's why:  She is moored at the wonderful and very secure Yacht Club Peruano in the Bay of Calloa for only $70USD per month.  Airfare from Miami is less than $400 roundtrip now.  The Lima international airport is only a 20-30 minute taxi ride away.  Peruvian food is great!  Lima puts you in a position to either jump off across the Pacific, continue south to Chile or head to Ecuador and points north with the wind and current at your back.  You even have the option to take her for day sails since she is located in a bay and not in a river estuary.
 
We are accepting offers starting at $225,000USD.
 
Please contact at carrie_kinnison@yahoo.com with questions and for a complete list of equipment.  Also see our website http://www.svterrafirma.smugmug.com for the Adventures of Terra Firma.

that's some good stuff, best of luck finding a suitable buyer.

Might I ask who did your spinnaker? (and the graphics)

I'd love to hear (in a separate thread probably) any experiences with such a chute over a number of years


cheers

Ullmann sails in San Diego designed the spinnaker and I believe it was North Graphics, also in San Diego, that did the graphics.

The picture above was taken just south of Puerto Angel off the mainland of Mexico.  That was a great sail!  We were with 2 other boats also under spinnaker.  I am sure it looked like a Boat Magazine cover.

One of our favorite passages was between Panama and Ecuador.  We actually got to use the spinnaker quite a bit while close reaching in light air.  We loved letting Casey Jones (the Hydrovane) steer while we sat on deck and watched the skeletons dance in the breeze.
