If your dream is to cruise the Mediterranean this boat is wired to European electrical standards. She is currently set up to convert to US voltage standards and her present owners have been enjoying her in Florida for a long time. She can be easily converted to strictly US standards if desired.



Sula's interior is warm and inviting. Thirteen opening ports w/screens and eight hatches with OceanAir screens & shades provide abundant light and air flow. You'll admire the beautiful furniture quality satin gloss varnish applied to the select teak hardwood veneers on the bulkheads and all cabinetry. As you descend the companionway ladder, you will see the open salon with full length settees on both sides covered in beautiful UltraLeather upholstery. The starboard settee extends toward the centerline to make a comfortable double berth and both settees can double as seaberths.  A cedar-lined hanging locker with extra height rods is outboard with a shelf above. The dining table is Island Packet's signature fold-up bulkhead-mounted table. When deployed it will accommodate a large group and then conveniently stores away when not in use. There is a very nice forward-facing navigation center with seating for two, large varnished chart table, storage tray, generous nav/electronics panel with master AC/DC electrical panels. The comfortable wide bench seat has removable panels beneath revealing the dedicated generator compartment. The forward owner's stateroom spans the beam of the yacht and includes a generous offset island berth with access on both sides so you don't have to disturb your partner when getting out of bed. The berth is hinged and can be raised on gas support struts to reveal ample storage. There is a large cedar-lined hanging locker and teak bureau. A nice dressing seat to port adds a final touch. A luxurious private head is located adjacent to the stateroom and features a large stall shower with folding acrylic doors, VacuFlush toilet, vanity with Corian counterop and molded sink. Mirrored storage cabinets and large drawers finish this impressive head. The aft guest stateroom also features a large offset double island berth, a roomy cedar-lined hanging locker with extra height rods outboard, and an array of cabinets, bins, and shelves. As in the owner's stateroom, the berth top hinges on gas struts to reveal lots of storage beneath. The aft head is just as nice as the forward with the same Corian countertops, separate shower stall with seat and folding acrylic doors, and VacuFlush toilet. A door is conveniently located near the companionway in the main salon plus an additional door for private access from the aft stateroom. The roomy cockpit is safe and comfortable with bimini and dodger. The large swim platform features twin molded-in steps to port and starboard, a hot/cold shower and a fold-out swim ladder. The boat is always very well maintained and regularly inspected even when the owners are away. At the time the photos were taken the boat had been professionally prepared for the owners absence by a yacht maintenance company. 3 kg.

Broker Comments
This boat has been well maintained and is "turn key". But the best thing is that you can get this almost good as new Island Packet for much below the price of new. There's no waiting for equipment to be added or working out the bugs...just load her with your personal gear and you are ready to go cruising. Don't miss your opportunity. The Island Packet 440 is a beautiful sailing machine and this is a great example of the model. If your dream is to cruise the Med - this model is equipped to European electrical standards - 110V shore power is transferred to 220V. The current owners use her regularly in her current location in Florida. She can easily be converted to strictly US standards if needed.
