During an extensive winterisation service it was felt that the engine would benefit from a bottom up overhaul and rebuild. The engine was therefore removed and extensively workshop rebuilt and tested by a local engineer. Exhaust elbow, water trap, and pipework were also replaced together with gear and throttle linkages. A full breakdown of work carried out is available on request.

The mast is fitted with mast steps to aid ascending the mast. The Harken Furling gear was checked and serviced and found to be in good order.

The sails, although original are all in good order and are currently with the sailmaker for laundering and servicing.

Construction

Construction GRP
Underwater profile Long Keel
Finish Gelcoat finish

The hull below the waterline has been stripped of all antifoul and given a clean bill of health by a local surveyor. A copy of his report is available on request. Subsequently the hull received 2 coats of Gel Shield epoxy (see image) before the application of a fresh coat of antifoul. Above the water line a fresh boot top has been applied and the hull thoroughly polished and waxed. The decks and coachroof have been cleaned and all varnish removed from teak. As one would expect from a 19 year old boat some blemishes remain, but these are purely cosmetic.

Although the tankage of the holding tank is unknown, it is usually in the region of 40 litres

Total # of berths 7
No. of double berths 3
No. of single berths 1
Cabin(s) 3
Sink 1

Below deck the interior furniture has been completely restored. All the original teak oil has been removed and sanded back to pristine timber. All the interior furniture was painted with 3 coats of 2 pack polyurethane giving depth and durability. A further 2 coats of rubbed effect single part polyurethane varnish, giving lustre and UV resistance, was applied. The result is the interior now has a light and airy feel to it. The saloon and cabin floors have also been taken back to the original wood and re-varnished. Furthermore the saloon upholstery has been replaced with material to match the original. The end result is a stunning near showroom finish throughout the interior

Her accommodation comprises two double cabins - one large aft cabin lying athwart ships with ample hanging storage. The second double cabin is in the fore-peak with a dual-door heads opening into the forward cabin (as an en-suite) and also the saloon. The saloon seating can also convert to an additional double berth.

The saloon table folds up so that it is completely out the way when not in use which makes the saloon feel very spacious. The headroom is impressive at a shade under 2m.

The well appointed galley with excellent storage and worktop space lies to starboard, aft of the saloon and includes a double stainless steel sink, a four burner cooker, oven and grill and a very large fridge. The galley also includes an additional small cool box and microwave.

Opposite the galley is the navigation area with a rear facing chart table.

2 burner propane Stove

Broker's Comments

The Island Packet 350 offer more than your average 35 foot yacht. The high quality build and fit out is immediately apparent and she feels bigger than her 35 feet thanks to her design. On deck she has a good sized cockpit with plenty of seating and useful locker space and wide side decks making it easy to move around unimpeded. She has a One-piece integral hull and keel which means there are no keel bolts to maintain, loosen or leak. Furthermore her long keel design ensures a sea kindly vessel capable of long distance and ocean cruising

This Island Packet has recently undergone a major makeover inside and out with the internal furniture having been restored back to showroom condition throughout.

Externally all exposed wood has been taken back to original and recoated. Below the waterline all the old antifoul has been removed. Following a clean bill of health from a surveyor she has had 2 additional coats of gel shield epoxy treatment and a fresh cost of antifoul.

Standing and running rigging has been replaced.

Her engine was removed, stripped and rebuilt from the bottom up.

All in all this is a very well built and solid blue water cruising yacht and we think it is quite special and consider it very unlikely that you will find an Island Packet 350 of this age to match the condition of this yacht outside of a showroom. All of the work that one would expect to undertake, ie engine recondition, rigging replacement and antifoul removal has been done. One should remember that this is a 20 year old boat and there are still some external wear and tear blemishes that could not be removed, however these are light and cosmetic.

If you are looking for an Island Packet 350, this one should most definitely be on your list. If buying from outside the UK; eg USA, the current exchange rate makes this an even more attractive proposition.

Please note; the photographs of her afloat were taken before any of the work was started.
