The Island Packet 485 remains the “flagship” of the Island Packet line and “SOLSTICE" is a nice example of this highly sought after world cruiser.

"SOLSTICE" has been loved by just one owner over the past 14 years.  Originally purchased in San Diego new in May 2004, SOLSTICE has traveled up and down the west coast of the U.S., transited the Panama Canal, cruised the Caribbean extensively and is now lying in Palmetto, FL awaiting a new owner and new adventures.

Like all IP485's, "SOLSTICE" has a tremendous amount of living space and enough storage to hold just about everything needed for a circumnavigation.  The thoughtfully laid out interior is bright, spacious and secure. Her functional deck plan, cutter rig, and cockpit configuration make her the perfect boat for shorthanded or single-handed sailing.  Features such as a broad anchor platform and the spacious stern boarding platform, with dual boarding steps, help to enhance this yacht's appeal.

The large aft deck is perfect for sunbathing: set up a folding table and you have an impromptu dining area, as well as enough space to accommodate a 10’ dinghy.  The heavy work of placing the dingy on deck is done with the use of the “Extendo-Boom” option.  With the push of a button, your dingy is out of the water and swung on deck.  Storage bins on either side of the aft deck hold LPG bottles and miscellaneous gear.  The side decks are uncluttered with raised bulwarks forward, and cabin top handrails provide for security on deck.

Below decks, you’ll be immediately impressed by the panoramic view of the open main salon, which flows to a galley that can only be described as a chef's dream.  Spacious forward and aft cabins with private heads, high-end wood joinery, a multi-use third cabin with an office desk, swing-out stool and bunk conversion option, plus a navigation center worthy of the Starship Enterprise are some of the many features that set this Island Packet 485 apart from the competition. 

"SOLSTICE" is very well equipped, mechanically well maintained, and ready to continue delivering cruising memories to a couple or family ready to expand their horizons.
