The Island Packet 40 offers the ultimate in safety and seaworthiness, along with a comfortable and cozy interior that is as beautiful as it is functional.  This historic Island Packet 40 is unlike any other on the market! 

Dream Weaver was purchased from her original owner in Spring of 2017, after an extensive search, for a non-stop Pacific crossing, from San Diego to Japan. Since new, she was lightly used and meticulously maintained by caring and knowledgeable owners. 

Major replacements and upgrades performed by qualified professionals totaling more than $70,000 since 2018 include, but not limited to: complete replacement of standing and running rigging, full servicing of all winches, new line clutches and additional winches; servicing of engine and generator, including replacement of engine manifold and exhaust elbow of generator; all new mast wiring, all lights switched to LED and complete replacement of the 1,000AH battery bank; new electronics (Axiom 12 chartplotter, Iridium GO, AIS-B…) and autopilot; new bottom paint and hull waxing; Viking RescU Pro 6, Jordan series drogue, and EPIRB. 

Online access to digital file with all invoices, manuals, pictures etc. will be made available to interested parties.

Distinguishing factors: Complete overhaul in 2018, in pristine condition and ready for a circumnavigation tomorrow as proven by recent non-stop Pacific crossing; new 1,000AH battery bank, DuoGen3 electricity generator, 7.6kw diesel generator and solar panels assure abundant electricity; Boom furling, electric halyard winch and Lewmar 48 and 16 winches with dual rope clutches on starboard and port sides make line handling easy; Autoprop is very effective when under power and efficient when under sail. Two zones of reverse-cycle air/heat, custom made mattress, and custom carpet add to the comfort of this already comfortable boat.

Now, after safely and comfortably completing the non-stop 7,000 nautical mile passage from the US to Japan with only a totally blind sailor and a novice sailor as captain and crew, she is ready to continue the dream with a new owner.
