A beautiful and well maintained IP-45 located in Oriental, NC.
SOMEDAY is an IP 45 that is loaded with cruising equipment including water maker, Panda generator, and update electronics. The exterior teak was re-done in 2016 with 10 coats of varnish. Outfitted and ready to take her new owner’s anywhere in style and comfort. The owner’s change of plans dictates the sale.
As one of the largest of the Island Packet range, the 45 offers exceptional safety and seakeeping, unmatched comfort and livability, superb craftsmanship and materials, and sparkling performance. The exclusive Full Foil Keel unifies the performance of modern hull and foil designs with the superior seakeeping, comfort and safety of a traditional long keel. This design adds numerous benefits for the cruising sailor including superior protection from damage or fouling for both rudder and prop, immensely strong integral hull and keel construction, and moderate draft with exceptional stability. On deck, the well-planned layout provides the safety and security needed in offshore conditions. It features long, contoured seats, a fresh water shower, an insulated beverage locker for quick access to snacks and drinks, locking seat hatches with access to a deep storage locker to starboard and a storage tray to port, recessed winch handle pockets and two covered line bins for storage of sail control lines. Full-length teak handrails, double lifelines and recessed fore and side decks with raised bulwarks provide secure footing when underway. A premium, console-mounted rack and pinion steering system is employed for its smooth, sensitive and responsive control and rugged reliability. The cutter rig has furling systems on both the genoa and self-tending staysail. Three manageable sails allow a small crew to set a variety of well-balanced combinations for comfort, safety and performance over a wide range of wind and sea conditions. The generous sail plan, coupled with the easily driven, long waterline hull form, assures excellent light-air performance. All necessary control lines are lead aft to allow routine sail-handling from the comfort and security of the cockpit. The 45's innovative, practical and well-appointed accommodations are focused on both the requirements of extended cruising and a comfortable lifestyle when living aboard. The navigation station features a wide navigation table with hinged top and a stowage tray below, access the electrical panels and electronics. The molded, slip-resistant sole is provided in the high traffic areas for improved footing and easy maintenance, while the salon and staterooms have varnished teak and holly soles. The entire interior conveys a sense of comfort and style in a harmonious blend of designer fabrics, textures and surfaces. Carefully selected teak, chosen for both grain pattern and color, is meticulously hand-crafted and varnished for a furniture quality fit and finish. The engine is easily accessible. Extensive sound reduction measures include lead-lined foam insulation and gasket doors. Island Packet's exclusive PolyClad hull gel system was developed to avoid osmotic blisters while the deck uses gels specially formulated for long term resistance to crazing and cracking. Gel coats are applied with high volume-low pressure (HVLP) application equipment using statistical process controls to provide an exceptional finish as well as minimize manufacturing emissions. The hull of the 45 is built of solid tri-axial laminate, providing the highest level of impact and puncture resistance and over twice the tensile strength of conventional woven roving laminates. The deck is cored with Poly-Core, an extremely tough inorganic matrix of glass microspheres and resin that is impervious to rot and delamination. All Island Packet 45 structural laminates and internal reinforcements are designed to meet or exceed ABS standards. Well-built and a stout vessel, SOMEDAY will please even the most discriminating Island Packet buyer.
