The Island Packet 370 is the result of nearly 30 years of design refinement and evolution, combining input from the many enthusiastic owners, dealers and the Island Packet factory team. That evolution has led to some marked differences from previous models. The refined hull, keel and rudder shape and proportionately wider stern provides improved boat speed, a larger sugar scoop swim platform and more internal volume for accommodations and stowage. The rigs are taller than in previous models, adding sail carrying power and improved boat speed. Less exterior teak to care for, a watertight anchor locker bulkhead…
Designed with accommodations for extended cruising, the 370 is one of the only yachts in her class to boast large island berths in both staterooms. With cedar lined hanging lockers, blanket bins under hinged bunk lids, wide shelves, bureaus and plenty of headroom both forward and aft staterooms can easily serve as the master stateroom.
Island Packets have been respected and admired around the world for their exemplary construction,superior seakeeping and delightful sailing qualities. Below deck their reputation continues, with luxurious accommodations, wonderful galley space and an incredible amount of storage space. Full length port and starboard seating areas are both comfortable and practical, double as sea berths and the port settee conveniently converts to a double berth.
Whether your plans are local, coastal or long distance cruising, the Island Packet 370 will take you confidently wherever you plan to go. She truly is a boat that will take care of you when you can’t take care of yourself.
Our offering, “KINGFISHER”, has received nothing but the best of care since her owners purchased her. She has been professionally maintained in Bristol condition by one of the best yards in New England.
To give you a feel for the kind of care Kingfisher has received, here’s some of the annual off-season service she received:
Every fall before haul out the yard took the boat out for a trial run to inspect the engine for any issues that needed to be attended to over the winter. Fluids were changed, seacocks were opened to drain, the bilges were dried. An electrolysis test was performed. The depth transducer was checked for salt water leakage. The holding tank was flushed and winterized as was the fresh water system.
The VHF was tested, winter maintenance was performed on all of the electronics and the chart plotters were removed were stored in climate-controlled storage for the winter. Sails and canvas were removed and delivered to the sail loft for cleaning, service and storage. Batteries were charged, load tested, cleaned and disconnected. The mast, boom and furler were removed and stored indoors. The boat was washed with Salt Away and shrink wrapped for the Winter.
Over the winter and during Spring commissioning, the spars were cleaned and polished. Running rigging was cleaned. Blocks, sheaves, turnbuckles and winches were cleaned and lubricated. Furlers were cleaned, lubricated and polished. Standing rigging was inspected and serviced as necessary. The rack and pinion steering was inspected, serviced as necessary and lubricated. Seacocks were cleaned and lubricated. The engine was cleaned, hoses and belts inspected, hose clamps tightened, replaced as needed and lubricated. Throttle and shifter were inspected, adjusted and lubricated. The air intake was removed and filter cleaned. Sea strainers were cleaned and O-rings lubricated. Raw water pumps were cleaned, inspected and impellers replaced. Sump pumps and bilge pumps were cleaned and tested. The air conditioning was serviced. The bonding system was cleaned and sprayed with protectant. Mast and deck light sockets were cleaned and sprayed as well and bulbs tested. Deck hardware was cleaned and waxed. Fiberglass was inspected, cleaned, touched up, scuff marks removed and smooth portions waxed. Cetol was inspected, touched up and coated. The boat was taken out for a trial run to confirm proper operation.
Basically the service people touched every inch of this boat cleaning, lubricating, replacing anything in question, polishing and making sure the boat was perfect. She was in the water about six months of the year and under cover the other six. Any issues that arose during the sailing season were addressed immediately. As a broker, this is the kind of listing that sets the benchmark- I wish they all showed this kind of love and caring stewardship.
KINGFISHER shows extremely well and is certainly worthy of your personal inspection. In this kind of condition I don’t expect her to last very long. Call and make an appointment to come see KINGFISHER today!
