The Island Packet 45 is an iconic high-quality cruising yacht, immensely capable yet easily handled by just two and with exceptionally high levels of comfort.

It is no wonder that when first introduced, the IP 45 won Cruising Boat of the Year and was described by the judges as follows:

“The 45's elegant but practical interior achieves a great balance between the desire for all the comforts of home ashore and the necessities of life at sea.”

“Detailed attention to the demands of real-world cruising, toughness for hard use and heavy seas, comfort underway and at anchor… it all adds up to what cruising people need in a boat.”

“As judged, the Island Packet 45 represents terrific value and overall superb execution.”

Vivamus is a beautifully presented example and has had just one owner from new.

The 45 offers exceptional safety and seakeeping, unmatched comfort and livability, superb craftsmanship and materials, and sparkling performance. The exclusive Full Foil Keel unifies the performance of modern hull and foil designs with the superior seakeeping, comfort and safety of a traditional long keel.

This design adds numerous benefits for the cruising sailor: superior protection from damage or fouling for both rudder and prop, immensely strong integral hull and keel construction, and moderate draft with exceptional stability.

The cutter rig used has furling systems on both the genoa and self-tending staysail. Three manageable sails allow a small crew to set a variety of well-balanced combinations for comfort, safety and performance over a wide range of wind and sea conditions.

The 45's innovative, practical and well-appointed accommodations are focused on both the requirements of extended cruising and a comfortable lifestyle when living aboard.

The entire interior conveys a sense of comfort and style in a harmonious blend of designer fabrics, textures and surfaces. Carefully selected teak, chosen for both grain pattern and color, is meticulously hand-crafted and varnished for a furniture quality fit and finish.

The engine is easily accessible. Extensive sound reduction measures include lead-lined foam insulation and gasketed doors.

The hull of the 45 is built of solid triaxial laminate, providing the highest level of impact and puncture resistance and over twice the tensile strength of conventional woven roving laminates. The deck is cored with PolyCore, an extremely tough inorganic matrix of glass microspheres and resin that is impervious to rot and delamination.
