The Perfect Cruising Boat for the Caribbean and Beyond


It is always a pleasure to see and show a boat that has been well cared for by knowledgeable owners, particularly after years of cruising.  It speaks volumes about them and the boat. Arctic Tern is one of those boats.   

If you are looking for a wonderful yacht to cruise the Caribbean or around the world, Arctic Tern is the boat for you!  She recently returned from the Caribbean and is ready to go again!  She has benefited from many upgrades and improvements over the years and is truly a turn key vessel.


The Island Packet 45 replaced the IP 44 and was produced from 1996 to 2000.  It is the culmination of many of the great aspects of the Island Packet line, which has made it so popular, with cruisers, over the years.  This is hull number 12 of 44 and has continued to benefit from her loving owners care with constant maintenance and upgrades.  Complete boat survey and hull survey 2012- available upon request. Standing and running rigging survey 2013
