General Details

Sea Salt is a fine example of Island Packets' Flagship vessel the 485 with a LOA of 51 feet and a comfortable weight of 20 tons.  Island Packet 485 hull design offers exceptional stability for shallow water gunk holing (Draft 5’ 3”) or worldwide voyaging along with performance capabilities proven by numerous victories in prestigious international offshore racing events.  I would dare to say that Sea Salt is the perfect cruising yacht for the couple intent on global adventure or the most magnificent coastal cruising yacht available on the market today.


Manufacturer Provided Description
The 485, provides enormous living space with enough storage to hold provisions for a circumnavigation...enough sail to speed you comfortably to your destination and the convenience of managing it all from the cockpit. From the integral bow platform to the spacious stern boarding area, the 485's deck abounds with features owners will appreciate. On deck, you'll find generous open spaces and secure hand holds, hatches and lazarettes that lead to numerous storage lockers, uncluttered sidedecks, a recessed foredeck and cabin top handrails for safe footing all around. You'll also find our exclusive patented SeaSafe anchor rollers that provide fully captive, low chafe guides for chain and rode for quick anchor deployment and secure storage. A very spacious aft deck and sun platform complement the remainder of the 485's very secure topsides. Below, you'll be immediately impressed by the panoramic view of the expansive main saloon, the open central area, the huge forward and aft cabins with private heads, the solid teak and oak soles throughout, the gourmet galley, the extra stateroom/office/workshop and a nav station that rivals those on much larger yachts.

Nav Station
The Navigation Station is located to port amidships with an impressive view from the high back swivel chair of the vessels control systems and salon.
