Island Packet 40


An absolute must-see
. If you are serious about cruising, you owe it to yourself to look at Cielo. Her current owner is an engineer with 35+ years of cruising experience who bought and equipped her with the intention of owning her forever. This is the best IP40 on the market, and at a bargain price.

The difference between her and others on the market is in the quality of her installations and thoughtful upgrades. She has been outfitted by a cruising couple for a cruising couple. She’s clean, comfortable, energy-independent, and maintained at the highest level. She spent her first 6 years on fresh water.
If you know Island Packets, you know the IP40 is the gold standard; if you don’t, here’s a primer from Cruising World:

More Photos (click here):

A few highlights of Cielo:
· Energy Use & Power Generation:
· Complete gut-and-rebuild Custom Fridge & Freezer ($10k+); uses only 40 amps/day in the Caribbean. Everything is at hand and easy to access, freezer keeps ice cream.
· 260 Watts of Solar generates enough power for complete energy independence (and a 4kw Fisher-Panda genset just in case).
· Above Deck
· Wells Marine Arch ($12k). Custom designed and overbuilt. Davits are no substitute for a proper arch. Dinghy is lifted high and clear for visibility at sea. Solar panels, radar, backup antennas, outboard crane all fit securely with room for more.
· Quantum Cruising Sails (3 seasons, excellent condition). Full-batten Main, Genoa, & Staysail
· Comfort & Convenience:
· Reverse Cycle A/C and Heat ($10k).
· Ultra-suede Salon Cushions ($10k), Custom Cockpit Cushions.
· Custom Memory Foam Mattress ($3k). You will sleep like a baby.
