2008 Island Packet 440

Beaulieu, Hampshire


In excellent condition throughout and comprehensively equipped for long-range cruising, this Island Packet 440 from 2008 combines superb build quality, comfort, easy short-handed sailing and excellent sea keeping. Very much in the Hallberg-Rassy or Malo vein in terms of appeal. She is very nicely set up for European and long distance cruising. Her many extras include the versatile self-tacking staysail, electric primary winches and generator. Seraph of Hamble is afloat at Bucklers Hard Yacht Harbour, seeking her next Owner. A Part-Exchange would be considered.

The interior layout of the 440 makes it perfect for the couple that wants comfortable cruising with excellent family or guest accommodation.  Would also work really well as holiday retreat or live aboard. Both cabins feature island berths so that neither of you wake the other when getting out of bed. A long list of other interior amenities put this yacht in a class by itself. This aft cockpit design, and its predecessors, have been among the favorite Island Packets ever built. The geared rack and pinion steering system, proven through millions of miles of all types of cruising, provides sensitive and responsive control with rugged reliability and a minimum of maintenance.
