Accommodations The Island Packet 44 is laid out very comfortably for two couples with heads adjoining the staterooms to optimize privacy.


Beginning forward, the forward stateroom has a nice double pullman berth to starboard. There are teak shelves outboard of the berth, stowage lockers and cedar lined drawers underneath. The forward stateroom also features a large cedar lined hanging locker with interior shelf, teak bureau with mirrored vanity and upholstered seat.


The adjoining head has a separate shower area, teak seat, large wrap around vanity with s/s sink, toilet, hot/cold pressure water, unbreakable mirror, and lots of storage.



Next aft is the main salon which features two comfortable captain's chairs to port with settee to starboard. The captain’s chairs are separated by a fold-up table for games or snacks. This area also provides access to the ship’s entertainment center controls. To starboard is a full size L-shaped settee which converts to a double berth for guests. Island Packet's signature drop down dining table is also to starboard. All new  upholstery throughout the salon!


A very nice nav station is next aft to starboard and includes a full wrap-around work area, large chart table, chart storage tray, drawer, nav light, generous cabinets, master electrical panels, book rack, storage bin, and upholstered seat with stowage under. There is also a ventilated wet locker which drains to the bilge. Both the wet locker and nav station have been neatly fitted into this layout.


Next aft to starboard is the galley, a roomy and comfortable nook for the cook while underway and convenient for food delivery to the hungry crew in the cockpit.


To port is the aft head which features small bathtub/stall shower and toilet. There is a folding teak seat, large wrap around vanity with s/s sink, hot/cold pressure water, unbreakable mirror, and ample storage.


Continuing aft to port is the aft stateroom with a large and comfortable berth, full length teak shelf outboard, stowage lockers under, dressing seat, a generous cedar lined hanging locker, and bureau with shelf over.
