Island Packet – 465

Florida, United States

Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime? If you want to cast off from everyday life and set sail aboard a reliable cruising yacht, this well-kept 2008 Island Packet 465 is a must-see!

The Island Packet 465 is a solidly built, center-cockpit cruising yacht with a flexible cutter rig. It features two large cabins, a spacious salon, a nav station, a functional galley, and two heads. The interior is finished with oiled teak, a teak and holly cabin sole, and stainless steel ports. There is excellent headroom throughout the vessel. Its shoal draft is ideal for cruising the Chesapeake, Bahamas, and Gulf of Mexico, and the ICW-friendly mast is a plus. The 465 has plenty of fuel and water for extended cruising and a tremendous amount of storage. It’s hard to find a 46’ – 50’ vessel that checks more boxes than the Island Packet 465.

Additional Info


The Island Packet 465 has a spacious main salon with 7' 3" headroom, an impressive nav station, a galley fit for a chef, two heads, and two spacious cabins. The joinery is teak, and the cabin sole is teak and holly. Throughout the vessel, there are stainless steel ports with screens and opening deck hatches.

The salon has two full-length settees, and a large table folds up against a bulkhead shelf. The port settee pulls out to make a double berth, and both settees can be used as sea berths with the lee cloths. 

Adjacent to the companionway is the navigation station, which features a high-backed swivel armchair, an IPY inlaid chart table, a storage tray, and cabinetry space. A wet locker and chart storage compartment are within arm’s reach.

Two spacious cabins and abundant storage make the 465 as well suited for coastal harbor hopping as for living aboard or world cruising. The aft owner’s cabin includes a double island berth, plenty of storage, and access to the aft storage garage. Forward is a spacious guest cabin with a double island berth and storage. The ends of both berths lift to allow access to storage areas beneath the berths.

Both heads feature vanities with solid acrylic countertops, separate shower stalls with folding acrylic doors, and VacuFlush® heads.
