Hi, I'm Bernie Jakits. After 20 years of owning and running a successful brokerage in Annapolis, my partner Kate Christensen and I have merged our company with David Walters Yachts. We are happy and excited to be a part of something bigger and continue to live our passion that started long ago. When I was an engineer in the aerospace industry I had lots of time to read every sailboat review and follow every development in the industry. I dreamed of one day owning a distinctly different brokerage firm and it all came true when in 1997 I started RogueWave Yacht Sales It came out of a passion for the sea and love for the beautiful vessels that sail on her. My vision was to create a new kind of brokerage dedicated to honesty and integrity and desire to help people be successful and achieve their bluewater sailing vision. Kate Christensen joined me in 2001 to share that vision and bring her talents and expertise in business and marketing as well as her passion for sailing her Bristol Channel Cutter. Over 20 years, we built an incredible brokerage and consulting firm specializing in ocean going vessels and live aboard cruising sailboats. We have advised and guided over 800 Clients worldwide from as far away as Hong Kong, Brazil, Australia, Europe and everywhere between, so that they too can also achieve their dream of owning and cruising with a capable bluewater vessel to find and reach their own horizons. We have the experience and expertise required to really help people.
For over 45 years, I have sailed, delivered and worked on hundreds of different types of vessels. Representing many clients, I have sailed in the North Sea to Med, across the Atlantic, and in the South China Sea and the, Pacific, the Caribbean Islands and also both Coasts of the USA. Having owned and maintained over 3 million dollars worth of sailing vessels, I have vast experience with incredible sailing vessels from the Hallberg Rassy 53 or a Valiant 40 & 42, a Norseman 447, a PSC34, and a BCC28. I've sailed to many foreign ports and also lived aboard while raising a family. Kate and I have had the opportunity to have incredible sailing adventures aboard our boats from the amazing Bristol Channel Cutter to the Hallberg Rassy 53 and finally our Valiant 42 that we built new in 2008 when we were Valiant Dealers in Annapolis. We have sailed far and lived aboard; we have led the Caribbean 1500 to the Bahamas. We have raced to Bermuda. We have delivered boats from the North Sea to the Med and from Guatemala to Annapolis and of course from the Caribbean to Annapolis many times. Through that experience we can help cruising couples make the right decisions. I have decommissioned and shipped many vessels and put them back together again, for myself and also for our clients. I have upgraded each vessel we owned installing every system imaginable, and maintaining every boat properly. I have taught and advised clients so that they themselves will have a pleasant and rewarding experience. Being a fellow boat owner and having personally experienced both sides of being a buyer and a seller, I understand your concerns.
With these many years of experience I have come to know and appreciate what a truly high caliber blue water sailing yachts is and should be. As a licensed & bonded professional yacht broker, please give me the pleasure of helping you define your requirements and help choose your next passage making/offshore capable sailing or power yacht. My experience is gained from having had a 100 Ton USCG Master License, being a Captain on several ocean races, having been a Marine Surveyor, and of course my background as an MSME Mechanical Engineer. And most important of all, I have sailed over 100,000 offshore miles, on my own boats and delivering countless boats for client to about everywhere.

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 a Awlgrip boot stripes, besides new batteries/charger/invertor, 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 sea-worthy 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 bow sprit, 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.

Oriana is the much sought after 380 model with wonderful comfort and privacy for two couples or family. The owner’s stateroom forward sports the unique centerline queen berth and the large bathroom with separated shower. The aft cabin offers a huge double berth with its own vanity and private access to the single head. The 380 is a wonderful and comfortable cruiser. With the beautiful wall to wall carpet from Island Packet to the AC/Heat, extra fans, super-duper water pressure and loads of extra creature comforts, including tufted toppers and new custom high-quality mattress in the owner’s stateroom, peek-a-boo blinds, teak screens for ports and hatches and teak hinged doors at the companionway allowing ease of entry / exit from below decks, she shows beautifully and appears like new. The cockpit is super comfortable with plenty of cushions, very protective bimini and dodger, with full surround and added shading panels, all supported from a new full Kato arch with integral davits accommodating dinghy placement that allows full view aft when at anchor or underway plus Hot & Cold water shower and easy access to swim platform.
The spacious and efficient galley makes cooking and dining a wonderful experience. All the amenities, lots of counter space, open and airy, good access to cockpit, loads of storage make this an enjoyable galley whether at anchor or at sea.
Recently upgraded and/or well maintained, Oriana has a Garmin 1040 xs color chart plotter w 18 xHD Radar, B&G Instruments and AutoPilot – all easily accessible, along with VHF Radios.
Oriana’s past owners have spared no expense or effort in maintaining and upgrading her systems. Anything that could be improved, has been improved and you, as a new owner can reap those benefits. She is now capable of offering multiple options for power when away from the dock.
Island Packet has a wonderful formula for easy sail handling. She is a true Cutter Rig with a self-tending staysail on a furler, 115% headsail on a furler and an in-mast furling mainsail. All sails were replaced in 2015 by Quantum Sails in Solomons Island, MD. The cockpit is designed for easy access to all lines and gear. All rigging is in great condition, along with winches and other hardware making for safe and pleasurable sailing in any conditions.
Island Packet builds a phenomenal boat… The fiberglass work is excellent, the stainless is second to none, the boat is strong and stable, yet comfortable in every aspect – a GREAT formula. Your time underway can easily be spent in the safety and comfort of the cockpit due to the well managed sail plan. It is large enough for guests, comfortable and inviting, with easy access to dinghy and swim platform. The large, well designed bimini and dodger, along with full enclosure will keep you dry and comfortable no matter the conditions and really adds to the usable space on the boat in any season. The modernized underbody offers improved performance with Island Packet’s Full Foil Keel. The draft of only 4’ 7” makes this a GREAT BOAT for the BAHAMAS….! The current owners have recently refinished the brightwork with great looking and long lasting Cetol.
Oriana is well equipped for various docking / anchoring situations…
In preparation for their Bahamas Cruise, the current owners well equipped Oriana with safety gear that is great to have on board no matter where you might sail….
Again, in preparation for their cruise, the owners compiled an extensive supply of parts and supplies and over their time on Oriana, have compiled a HUGE array of information that will have immense value to the new owners. As an architect, this owner developed 16 section cut diagrams through the entire length of the boat showing various locations of storage, equipment and thru hull locations… What a gift for the new owners….!
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.
