The Island packet 465 ‘Direct Ferry’ at 14.9 metres (49 feet) long is undoubtedly one of the best yachts in the world in it’s class. A true ‘blue water’ cruising yacht, she is very stable and safe and can go anywhere with her ability to stand up to winds and weather that other lighter yachts may find uncomfortable.
A sensible and well designed cruising boat with exceptional comfort and all the amenities of home, Direct Ferry is ideal for those lazy summer days cruising around the The Mediterranean or for use as a spectator boat for watching regattas.
The roomy cockpit is designed with comfort and safety in mind and the large aft deck is perfectly suitable for entertaining.
The 465’s cockpit will be the spot you spend most of your time while sailing but the afterdeck will beckon for sunning and is big enough to act as a dance floor at party time.
A full width transom including a bathing platform is fitted at the stern complete with a drop down ladder for the swimmers. A hot and cold water shower is also available on the bathing platform.
As beautiful as the Island Packet 465 is to behold, it’s even more appealing below decks. Entering via the comfortably angled companionway steps, your attention will be drawn to full-length settees, port and starboard.
The expansive main saloon boasts more than seven feet of headroom and a well-appointed combination of hand crafted teak furnishings and a navigation station that would excite any world cruiser.
Large windows surround the saloon providing panoramic views…
Fully air conditioned and with independent cold or warm air systems in all cabins. Hot and cold showers in the large heads areas together with vacu flush toilet facilities to satisfy the most discerning guests.
