The 379 is the result of decades of Island
Packet design refinement and evolution. It
combines innovative and proven features with
all the exemplary construction qualities that
have made Island Packet yachts respected and
admired around the world.
A host of exclusive design features, including
our self tending staysail, geared steering system
and time honored Full Foil Keel®, all combine
to provide superior seakeeping and delightful
sailing qualities that will be appreciated as
much by the weekend sailor as by the couple
cruising the world.
From the large, comfortable cockpit to the
broad anchor platform, there are numerous
deck features on the 379 to appreciate. Wide
side decks, strategically placed hand rails and
recessed foredecks maximize your feeling of
confidence and safety on deck.
Below decks the 379 continues Island Packet’s reputation
for luxurious comfort. Perfect for an evening retreat
or gracious entertaining, the main saloon features our
versatile dining table that folds and stows against a
bulkhead bottle rack, opening up the area for socializing.
To add even more flexibility for entertaining, a smaller
removable table with a lift-out post is available for
mounting at either side of the saloon. Full length port
and starboard seating areas are both comfortable and
practical, double as sea berths and the port settee
conveniently converts to a double berth. Generous
storage is available both under and outboard of the
settees and throughout the entire yacht.
One of the more notable features of the 379 is the
versatility of the aft cabin. Cleverly configured for great
sleeping accommodations, this multi-use area is truly
unique due to the desk area, which can be used as
a vanity, a navigation station, or a work station. The
nav table top lifts to reveal a storage tray and vanity
mirror mounted on its underside. A swing-out seat is
controlled with the push of a button, while a removable
hinged panel in the forward bulkhead opens and joins
this area with the saloon when desired.
The open “U-shaped” design of the 379 galley is notable
for its generous space and numerous convenience
features. The fridge and freezer compartments feature
dual Frigoboat® cooling units and individual digital controls.
Either compartment may be used for refrigerated or
frozen storage by the setting of the controls.
Designed with accommodations for extended cruising,
the 379 is one of the only yachts in her class to boast
large island berths in both staterooms. With plenty
of elbow and headroom, cedar-lined hanging lockers,
bureaus, wide shelves and blanket bins under hinged
bunk lids, both forward and aft areas easily qualify as
Luxury and comfort have been carefully considered in the
head area as well. The separate stall shower features a
folding acrylic door and ample storage is provided by the
built-in vanity. Doors from both the forward stateroom
and the main saloon provide both utility and privacy.
Island Packet continues to set the benchmarks for
excellence in design, construction and value and the 379
advances this tradition.
