General Details

Please note this Second Reduction in Price for This Excellent Vessel!

Your writer was the first broker hired by Northrop and Johnson in the history of the company in Manhattan, its birth place in the 1950’s. Since then I have been in many phases of the boat business but have yet to view a better maintained and equipped offshore sailing vessel than VOLARE represents. Of course always subject to survey, she should be ready to start for the Caribbean tomorrow. She is located at the home of this two boat owner in Punta Gorda, Florida between  the two international airports in Ft Myers and Sarasota. Courtesy showings can be easily arranged. Currently she is the lowest priced of these vessels available. It is a slim margin but is indicative of the owner’s desire to sell promptly. Can we help you?


The salon features full-length Ultra leather settees port and starboard. The salon table can be stowed against the forward bulkhead or folded out for entertaining. A wine rack behind the table is hidden when the table is stowed. Large windows surround the salon providing panoramic views and new peek-a-boo shades offer privacy. The port settee extends to the center line to make a double berth. Throughout the interior of the 445, lighting is abundant. Recessed lights and numerous, well-placed halogen reading lamps, all with dimmer switches, illuminate the spacious cabin. Adjacent to the companionway is the deluxe navigation center - a highlight of this yacht! It features a high-backed swivel armchair, an inlaid chart table with storage tray, cabinetry space sufficient to mount a wide variety of electronic equipment and access to the electrical panels for shipboard AC and DC equipment. This area is sure to be popular with both captain & crew. There’s also a wet locker within arm’s reach. The gourmet galley includes opening ports on either side to keep it light and airy. The top-loading refrigerator and freezer, with digitally controlled cooling units, provide generous cold storage. A pull-out refrigerated drawer is also included for quick access to popular beverages and food. Also featured in the galley are built-in dish racks, cutlery drawers, deep double sinks, a slide out trash bin, a microwave oven and abundant cabinet and locker storage. Other enhancements include Corian counter surfaces with integral sea rails, a Force 10 LPG range/oven and a water purifying system serving all interior cold water sink taps. Two sizable staterooms are perfect for living aboard or world cruising. It is difficult to call one a master as they both offer exceptional rest and relax. The stateroom aft includes a double island berth. Hanging storage with extra height is provided by the outboard hanging locker. Access to the aft lazarette storage area is available through the aft bulkhead. Forward is a stateroom with a large double island berth. Both staterooms include numerous opening ports, large overhead hatches and deck vents, providing plenty of light and ventilation. Both berths are surrounded by an array of cabinets, lockers, drawers and shelves, and include a large panel that lifts on gas support struts to reveal a blanket storage area. Both heads feature vanities with Corian counter tops, separate shower stalls with folding acrylic doors and VacuFlush electric heads. Directly across from the forward head door is a large hanging locker, which for "Volare" is home to her convenient washer/dryer combo.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The center cockpit 445 possesses all the exemplary qualities that have earned Island Packet a worldwide reputation as the leader of cruising boat design and construction. Naval architect Bob Johnson and the Island Packet design team have created the 445 by combining the superior comfort, ease of use, seakeeping, and safety attributes that are the hallmark of every Island Packet, along with innovative new features and stunning good looks that will further reinforce Island Packet's position as America's Cruising Yacht Leader. Tankage and storage on the 445 is exceptional. All tanks are centrally located below the cabin sole, benefiting stability and interior storage space elsewhere in the yacht with minimal effect on trim. Every detail, from the geared rack and pinion steering system to the swedged and threaded fuel hose fittings, is carefully chosen for its important contribution to long term quality and reliability. Numerous details like magnetic reed bilge pump switches and thru-bolts with lock nuts on both seacocks and prop shaft couplings typify the approach to building every aspect of an Island Packet. Heavy duty, high output alternators with Digital Duo-Charge controllers, premium pre-tinned wiring, and large capacity absorbed glass mat (AGM) batteries reflect the many quality features built into the 445 that help ensure the owner years of comfortable, trouble-free cruising.
