The comparison with our new offering isn’t comparing apples to oranges, BUT oranges to oranges. It’s like all 69 old guys are the not same as other 69 guys, for some can’t walk a mile without falling over while others can run a marathon. Well, with this 1999 IP380, you got the cream of the crop, all in one turn-key extremely well equipped go now comfortable liveaboard voyager which is ready to enjoy NOW. She has been maintained and loved regardless of money.

Buy her, write out only one check, and you’ll have everything that you’d ever want and ever need in one very nice and well-loved package. She’s a wonderful opportunity that only comes around in a blue moon without the pain and suffering of buying a cheaper boat that always “needs” stuff.

She will not disappoint in any which way. A very recent spotless survey is available to anyone who is serious and makes a real offer.

This 1999 Island Packet 380 is in absolute pristine condition, tenderly cared for by her current owners since 2006. Having sold this boat to its two previous owners, we “know this vessel” well and have spent many enjoyable hours on her since 2006. It’s only fitting that we are able to offer her again, in even better shape for cruising than before. The current owners have consistently upgraded and outfitted Oriana for cruising safety and comfort. Today, she is well-equipped and in sail-away condition – ready to take you on your dream cruise… A 2020 Marine Survey estimated her “Replacement Cost for a New Like-Kind Vessel with Similar Equipment” at $800,000. A “short-list” of improvements include: 5 kw Genset, 2000 W Charger / Inverter, Air Conditioning, Water Maker, Bow Thruster, 500 Watts of Solar Panels mounted on a Full Kato Arch w Davits, Custom-Designed Integral Bimini w/ Full Surround, Lofrans Windlass w/ 200’ of Chain & Multiple Anchors, Winslow 6 Person Life Raft, New Sails (2015), new running rigging, new holding tank, new Garmin Electronics and 10’ Achilles Dinghy and Outboard, besides Awlgrip boot stripes, besides new batteries/charger/inverter, the list is endless. All improvements and maintenance have been performed at Zahniser's Yachting Center in Solomons Island, MD – one of the top-rated Marina / Boatyards on the Chesapeake Bay.

We are pleased and excited to offer this rare value in a seaworthy sailing vessel. You MUST see it to believe it…!

In every anchorage we’ve ever been to, we find ourselves in the company of Island Packets! Island Packet has truly discovered the formula for success in the family and couples cruising market. They are well built, solid, safe, comfortable, and easy to sail. The living and storage space is amazing and all the creature comforts are built-in. Island Packet is famous for listening to customers and owners and incorporating their ideas into the next model. 

The IP 380 is the result of this kind of listening and innovation. Introduced in 1999, it is much more refined with less bowsprit, a finer entry, a little more deck space, a beautiful reverse transom and swim platform. These changes have resulted in increased speed and comfort underway. It is a perfect size for 2 couples or a family, including other great improvements such as the much sought-after centerline queen berth in the spacious Forward Stateroom, where these owners added a custom made high-quality mattress for an excellent nights sleep. 

With Island Packet’s experience, commitment to building quality boats, and attentive service, she makes a GREAT CHOICE….! Be sure to read Bob Perry’s Review of the IP 380 included in this listing for even more high marks and reasons for the success of this particular boat.

Bob Perry's Review - 1999

Island Packet had a very loyal following, accomplished by combining honest and obvious production quality with a design philosophy that virtually puts in a class by itself. Don’t think that this means a static design approach: the new 380 shows several areas where IP is “pushing the envelope”.

Some of you will look at the full-keel hull form and immediately assume a whole package of performance characteristics, and that’s not fair. There are good full-keel boats and bad full-keel boats, just like there are good and bad fin-keel boats. I would assume, based on the pedigree and the slow, thoughtful evolution of the IP hull form, that designer Bob Johnson has hit upon a successful combination of form features. Note the new IP bow profile. The bowsprit has been shrunk to vestigial proportions and the bow overhang has been extended. This results in more useful deck area forward and more volume below. The new 380 will be drier and, with finer angle of entry, it will probably be faster. It’s a nice look that complements the reverse transom and swim step aft.

The high-volume keel shape results in a high D/L of 313, but that’s typical of full-keel boats. I’m not wild about the “crab crusher” type of keel, but it does offer security in grounding situations, and it generally produces a boat with good directional stability. It’s important to know that not all full-keel boats track well. Note the semibalanced barn-door rudder. Most full-keel boats don’t back up worth a damn, and a big rudder (combined with a three bladed Max Prop) can certainly improve control in reverse.

The interior offers excellent accommodations for two couples. The single head is generous and doesn’t try to cram in a coffinlike shower stall. Although I love the challenge of cooking good meals on my 26-footer, it is definitely a challenge. This galley is spread out and is ideal in its location and layout. My one complaint about this style of interior: it doesn’t provide good sleeping options for an all-boys cruise. This could be remedied with V-berths, but they’re not in vogue these days.

The 380 is a true cutter. The mast location is pretty far back in the boat, leaving plenty of room in the foretriangle for carrying two headsails. The high-clewed staysail is set on a Garry Hoyt-style club that combines auto-vanging with self-tacking. The SA/D is 18.6, which is pretty good for this type of boat.

IPs always look good. There’s enough teak trim to give a dressed-up and yachty look while not overburdening the owner with therapy-like maintenance. Johnson shows in this new model that he is serious about performance while still holding fast to his overall design approach.
