The Island Packet 465 offers exceptional livability and practical cruising features coupled with impeccable craftsmanship and handsome good looks. 

The large center cockpit provides more than just a comfortable place for crew to congregate, it provides a safe working area from which you can perform all the necessary adjustments while underway and provides fantastic water visibility. 

Wide side decks, strategically placed hand rails and recessed foredecks maximize your safety on deck.

As beautiful as the 465 is to behold, it’s even more appealing below decks.

The expansive main salon boasts more than seven feet of headroom, a well-appointed combination of hand-crafted teak furnishings, cabinetry and storage, a navigation station that would excite any world cruiser, a gourmet galley fit for a master chef and two of the most spacious staterooms you’ll find on any vessel in this size range.
