2018 Island Packet 490

2018 Island Packet 490

The aft cockpit 490 combines the superior comfort, ease of use and safety and seakeeping qualities that are the hallmark of every Island Packet, along with the stunning good looks of its classic design. This world cruiser is capable of long distance days offshore, but is equally at home exploring coastal waters and for living aboard. A long list of amenities and unique design features put this yacht in a class by itself. From our patented SeaSafe anchor rollers to the Full Foil Keel with protected prop and rudder, every detail reinforces our dedication to raising the benchmark for cruising sailors.

The 490 features an aft deck area suitable for sun bathing or on-deck stowage. Storage bins on either side of the aft deck hold LPG bottles and miscellaneous gear. A central hatch opens to steps leading down into a large lazarette that includes a platform for an optional generator. An attractive fiberglass and teak transom platform makes stern boarding safe and simple, with the under-mounted retractable swim ladder providing emergency reboard capability as well.
