Amazing Grace offers a blend of liveaboard comfort and practical cruising features. She delivers the best accommodations of any yacht in this size range. Excellent light and ventilation are achieved with 15 opening screened ports, 8 deck hatches, and Hella 12-volt fans. As with all Island Packets, storage is abundant. Starting forward is a large anchor locker with interior access through a tall door in the forward head. This locker has a separate compartment for fender storage. The forward head features a separate shower stall with acrylic door, a deep S/S sink with vanity and Corian counters, new Masterflush/Dometic electric quiet-flush toilet, several lockers and drawers and excellent ventilation with an overhead hatch and opening portlights. The forward owner's stateroom is a true delight with the entire beam of the yacht utilized for a grand and inviting retreat. The large island berth is offset from the hull providing easy access from both sides and features a custom Handcraft mattress. A dressing seat is to port. The aft section of the berth top is mounted on gas support struts and lifts to reveal a large blanket chest. Drawers, cabinets, storage bins and a deep hanging locker provide ample storage. A dressing seat finishes this impressive stateroom. There are four screened portlights and two overhead hatches with retractable shade/screen units. Next aft is the main salon featuring Island Packet's signature bulkhead mounted fold-up table. A nice bottle and glass rack are revealed behind the table when it is lowered. The settee cushions are covered in durable yet comfortable UltraLeather in light beige. The starboard settee pulls out to provide a double berth. The large overhead hatch features an OceanAir retractable shade/screen unit. Next aft to starboard is the navigation station with an electrically powered swing-out seat and large hinged chart table. You'll find beautiful handcrafted cabinetry and joinerwork throughout the yacht in varnished teak. The galley , immediately to the starboard side of the companionway, features double S/S sinks and Corian counters, a 3-burner propane stove with oven, microwave, generous wrap around counter space, and a large refrigerator and freezer. To port is the aft head with entry from the salon or aft cabin. It features shower with wrap-around curtain and folding teak seat, vanity w/stainless steel sink and corian top, teak framed mirror, and new Masterflush/Dometic Electric quiet-flush head. The aft cabin features a large Pullman-style athwartship berth, large cedar-lined locker, numerous drawers and storage bins, and excellent access to the entire drive train through opening bins under the berth. The boat is completely "turn key". All you need to add is your personal gear and provisions and away you go.

Broker's Comments
The Island Packet 420 won the award for "Best Full Size Cruiser" in the 2000 Boat of the Year competition conducted by Cruising World Magazine as was one of the best selling models ever produced by Island Packet Yachts. Today, these yachts are in great demand which is evidenced by how few are available on the brokerage market. "Amazing Grace" is the newest IP-420 on the market. She is extremely well equipped and ready to go - NO upgrades or additional outfitting needed. She is in amazing condition and must be seen to truly be appreciated.
