Manufacturer Provided Description

The Island Packet 485 builds on the exemplary qualities that have made Island Packet yachts respected and admired around the world. Naval architect Bob Johnson created the IP485 by combining the superior comfort, ease of use, seakeeping and safety that have always been the foundation of the Island Packet concept, along with the innovative features and stunning good looks that will again set benchmarks for the cruising sailor.


The interior of the 485 sets her apart from from others in her class. It begins with the enormous raised salon, which allows for panoramic views thru large fixed windows. Seating is ample, with full length settees port and starboard, providing room for 6 to relax comfortably. Covered in buff colored Ultra Leather, seating is very durable and extremely comfortable. A small dining table to port has room for two guests while the bulkhead mounted table to starboard has room for two more. The starboard settee is capable of converting to a double berth.

The navigation center faces forward and has a high back swiveling arm chair. There is a large chart table and repeaters providing access to all information you have in the cockpit. The electrical panel is also installed within arms reach, making for an efficient command center. 

Galley is to starboard and laid out in a walk thru design. This provides several benefits including generous counter space, more room for refrigerated storage, better storage, and easy access into the engine compartment. Counters are finished in Corian, including top loading fridge/freezer. 

Forward is VIP stateroom with island berth and en suite head. Privacy doors close off cabin from passageway and allow private access to head when desired. 

Forward head incorporates a separate shower stall, vanity, and VacuFlush toilet. 

The second guest cabin has bunk beds and could be converted to a dual purpose office. 

Aft of the galley is the owners stateroom. The queen size island berth is set up athwartship. There is a dressing seat and cedar hanging locker along with plenty of drawers and storage compartments. Additionally, access is provided to the 'cave', a lazarette that rivals those of boats twice her size. 

The owners head has a separate shower stall, vanity, and VacuFlush toilet.
