    Vessel can be accessed from her side decks, through opening gates in the lifelines, or from the molded swim platform on the transom. Her cockpit is quite spacious with long seats to either side (very convenient for lying down), and stern seats on the stern rail aft. Upon descending the companion-way, the U-shaped Galley is immediately to Starbd – convenient for serving the Dinette below, or cockpit above deck.

Opposite on Port side is a straight settee, that can serve as a single berth and a full Nav station at the aft end of this settee. The Salon is quite spacious, especially with the dining table in the up position, and has the feel of a much larger vessel. Numerous teak cabinets and book shelves are outboard of the settees, as well as additional storage below the seating areas. A private aft cabin is in the Port quarter of the vessel with very adequate standing room. Forward of the Salon is a full head w/shower to Starbd, and hanging locker to Port. The head can be accessed from the Salon – The Owner’s cabin forward is comfortable with plenty of storage and also has private access to the head and shower to make this an en-suite cabin Numerous opening ports and overhead hatches make the vessel light and airy as well as well ventilated.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Island Packet 350 is the result of extensive hands-on design and sailing experience at Island Packet, combined with the feedback from owners with millions of miles of cruising experience around the globe. Noted naval architect Bob Johnson, Island Packet's founder and CEO, has fully integrated these resources to create the 350, another in Island Packet's award winning line of cruising sailboats. The Full Foil keel continues as the foundation of the Island Packet concept, and its design and construction provide a host of advantages to the cruising sailor: moderate draft for access to a wider variety of cruising grounds, integral one piece construction for superior strength, a highly effective airfoil shape for excellent windward performance, and a modern hull form for enhanced speed and maneuverability. In addition, the safety and sea keeping offered by this keel design provide both peace of mind and additional comfort while underway. While Bob Johnson insists his designs are "first and foremost excellent cruising yachts," the performance of these yachts has earned them an impressive number of victories in prestigious offshore races around the world. The integrally molded transom platform and clever folding ladder design will be appreciated by swimmers and those boarding from a dock or dinghy, while the offshore security of the cockpit is ensured with a full transom configuration, meeting the safety concerns and needs of passage-makers. The yacht's graceful sheerline carries from the attractive stern forward to the bowsprit tip, where large dual anchor rollers and deck pipes allow convenient and rapid deployment or retrieval of ground tackle. Thoughtful details such as replaceable chafe strips for wear from shackles and chain rodes, oversized deck pipes to clear thimbles, and interior rode attachments reflect Island Packet's unwavering attention to the needs of the cruising sailor. The well laid out deck with meticulous molded detail offers wide side walkways, raised bulwarks forward, full length continuous cabin top handrails, double lifelines with welded rails fore and aft, and two-tone premium diamond pattern, slip-resistant deck surfaces, all designed to enhance security while moving about on deck. The cockpit has full length contoured seats that accommodate a large crew or invite stretching out. The helmsperson will enjoy excellent visibility from the separate raised seat with padded backrest. The console mounted steering features Island Packet's trademark premium rack and pinion geared design, providing a combination of reliability, strength, and sensitivity unmatched by any other wheel steering installation. A steering wheel brake and single lever engine control are also provided on the console with room for owner - dealer installed instruments, and the engine panel is equipped with full analog gauges for all readouts. Cockpit convenience features abound with standard details such as a built-in insulated cooler, two large seat lockers, a hand held personal shower (cold only) that easily reaches the stern platform, two stern rail seats, and a pedestal mounted folding table. Safety concerns are equally met with a pin-lock for securing companionway drop boards, robust padeyes for safety harness attachment, a raised companionway bridge deck, large cockpit scupper drain capacity, and self-locking seat locker hatches with push button hasps that release from inside or out. Island Packet's long term commitment to the cutter rig, paralleling that of experienced offshore sailors worldwide, is due to its versatility, ease of use, and excellent performance over a wide range of conditions. The integral bowsprit gives an extended base to the sailplan for added sail area and provides for optimum sheeting angles for close-winded performance. The new 350 improves upon this sailplan even further with a freestanding staysail boom, simplifying control and adding performance to this highly effective sail. All sails are by Sobstad and both the 130 per cent genoa and the staysail include Harken roller furlers as standard equipment. The mainsail is equipped with a dual, single line reefing system or, optionally, with an in-mast furler. All primary sail control lines lead aft, allowing routine sail trim and setting - reefing activity to be done from the comfort and security of the cockpit. Thoughtful features such as self-tailing winches, color coded lines, rope clutches, traveler control lines, and coaming line stowage bins make sailing easier and more pleasant than ever. Entering the new 350, one is immediately impressed by the spacious and bright feeling below. A harmonious blend of practical cruising features and live aboard comfort is evidenced throughout. The base of the companionway ladder is surrounded by a molded sole area with slip-resistant surface, which extends into the nav and galley areas to provide both secure footing and easy maintenance for this busy central area. Added convenience is provided by a lift-out central teak grate with dust pan and lighted bilge sump access below, interior courtesy lights with switch adjacent to the companionway hatch, interior lock for the companionway hatch, and teak drop-boards with a fixed portlight and interior storage rack. The Island Packet 350's innovative galley design abounds with usable space and convenience features. The well insulated icebox has interior shelves, a direct-overboard electric drain pump, interior light with switch, prewiring for electric refrigeration, and ample volume for holding plates, ice, and food. Numerous drawers, Formica-lined cabinets and lockers, and built-in dish and cutlery storage provide ample room for stores and utensils. A fold-up counter extension and slide-out trash receptacle; deep, polished stainless steel sinks; a safety-type LPG range complete with guard rail and harness attachments; and other detail features are sure to be appreciated both in harbor or underway. The main salon is equally suited for social gatherings, off-watch retreats, or dining. The central hinged table may be either secured against the bulkhead mounted bottle and glass rack or easily lowered for a large dining area. An exceptional amount of interior stowage is available in the salon, as elsewhere throughout the interior, due in good part to the generous tankage centrally located below the cabin sole. Besides its obvious benefit of improving stowage, this feature also provides additional comfort underway by keeping the considerable weight of tank fluids low and out of the ends as well as reducing fore and aft trim changes with varying tank levels. Beautiful cabinetry and joiner-work in select teak; premium designer fabric over dual density 5-inch cushions; well-placed light fixtures and handrails; numerous opening ports, deck vents, and hatches; and durable and easily maintained overhead and hull side surfaces make this salon and the entire interior attractive and practica The nav table shares the aft end of the port settee for the navigator's seat and has ample room for bound chart packs or folded Admiralty charts. A handy drawer is provided outboard of the table, plus a locker underneath the table and a chart drawer under the starboard settee offer additional convenience. The deluxe master electrical control panel is housed in a built-in cabinet over the nav table, while additional blank panel space is provided for a variety of owner installed equipment. The forward stateroom features a large Pullman berth, upholstered dressing seat with contoured backrest; large cedar lined hanging locker, bureau cabinet, berth shelves, and plenty of stowage volume under the berth. A dorade vent, opening ports, and overhead hatch - as well as private head access and ample room to move about - further enhance this exceptional forward cabin. Island Packet yachts have long been noted for their spacious and livable interior designs, as evidenced by Cruising World magazine's comment on the Island Packet 45's forward head as "the most comfortable head afloat." The Island Packet 350 should garner equal accolades for this particularly practical head layout with the large wrap around counter, lots of cabinets, a shower with contoured seat and curtain, and drains that work heeled in either direction. Private access from either the salon or forward cabin, an opening port and overhead hatch, plus details such as a mirror, towel loop, and convenient lights add up to a standard of reference for all yachts in this size range. As with the forward stateroom, a generous Pullman style berth is featured in this fully enclosed aft cabin. A cedar lined hanging locker, bureau cabinet, full length mirror, long shelf, stowage bins, well placed lights, two opening ports, and an overhead hatch make this area inviting and very livable.
