BVI Yacht Sales Overview

Island Packet 420 ‘Cajun Moon’

An extremely well outfitted and cared for example of one of the most unique cruising boats to be produced by this builder to date.   A forward masters cabin like no other, a cockpit comfortable for lounging at anchor and safe for working the ship at sea, top quality construction and sensible ergonamic layout to systems and spaces make this a super special cruising boat, you would be lucky to be able to say is yours.

Island Packet builds distinctive, full-keel boats that have almost a cult following. They’re solid glass, heavy cruisers that will get you there in safety and comfort.This sturdy, aft cockpit boat boasts good water and fuel tankage and a spacious two cabin, two head layout with perhaps the best master stateroom found on any boat under about 45′ today. 

“Cajun Moon” is on the hard at Nanny Cay Marina.  I personally went to Puerto Rico recently to deliver this vessel to BVI and found all in good working order, a simple and easy to single hand boat with three roller furling sails, a good autopilot and a great layout for moving around easily onboard under sail or at moorings.   She is fully equipped to take off on a cruise right now and is surprisingly fast both under power and sailing too.   Outfitted with brand new standing rigging, glistening brand new topside gelcoat, all systems in great working order and completely ready to go now this is likely the best offering on the market for an IP420 today.

                    I. INTRODUCTION

                    SCOPE OF SURVEY
                    Acting at the request of Mr. Stephen C. Wooster, the undersigned marine
                    surveyor did attend on board the 2001 Island Packet 420 Cutter named CAJUN
                    MOON on February 8, 2019 while hauled out in Puerto del Rey Marina and afloat
                    on February 25, 2019. The registration papers were not on board at the time of
                    inspection. A sea trial will be performed in a later day. The reason for the survey
                    was to ascertain the physical condition and value of the vessel for insurance
                    purposes. AC and DC power will be used to check the operation of the electrical
                    system when the vessel is afloat.
                    The vessel was inspected without the removal of any parts including fittings,
                    tacked carpet, screwed or nailed boards, anchors and chain, fixed partitions,
                    instruments and miscellaneous materials in the lockers, bilges or other fixed or
                    semi fixed item. Locked compartments or other inaccessible areas would also
                    preclude inspection. Further, no determination of stability characteristics or
                    inherent structural integrity has been made and no opinion is expressed with
                    respect thereto. This survey report represents the condition of the vessel on the
                    above date, and is the unbiased opinion of the undersigned, but it is not to be
                    considered an inventory or a warranty either specified or implied.

                    CONDUCT OF SURVEY
                    STATE CODE (USC): TITLE 33 AND TITLE 46, CODE OF FEDERAL

                    III. GENERAL
                    Hull Material: Ivory GRP hull with blue waterline and cored decks. The decks
                    are FRP with the coach roof, molded in non-skid pattern and cockpit seats.

                    Two cabin layout.
                    The hull appeared to be strong and tight from what could be determined from the
                    inspection. The hull side maintained a high luster through out the length of the
                    vessel. The vessel suffered minor damage to the hull sides during Hurricane
                    Maria. The scratches were corrected and by a renowned contractor in Puerto Del
                    Rey Marina.

                    Topsides: The S/V CAJUN MOON is an aft cockpit Cutter. Upon inspection
                    decks and surfaces were found to be sound and secured. The main deck is has
                    an aggressive nonskid in average condition. Stainless steel stanchions are
                    properly fitted with bolted bases to the deck and hold the lifelines at an
                    appropriate height. On the bow there is a stainless steel anchor roller, it was
                    found to be properly secured and in good condition. Fixed ports, large opening
                    hatches and skylights in the coachroof provide light and ventilation. The aft
                    cockpit is molded fiberglass construction.

                    Bottom: The bottom of S/V CAJUN MOON was inspected at this time. At that
                    time the bottom was recently painted. The bottom was sanded and recoated with
                    new antifouling paint. The vessel is a full keel and no blisters or previous
                    accident damages were observed during the day of inspection. All ball type
                    seacocks and thru hulls were in good condition at the time of inspection.
                    A 1 1/4” stainless steel shaft and a 3 bladed bronze propeller is provided in the

                    local rigger.

                    XI. Surveyors NoteThere were no safety or compliance deficiencies noted at the time of the survey
                    and a few cosmetic issues caused by Hurricane Maria were seen and could be
                    attended whenever the owner see it fit to do so, seeing that they did not devalue
                    or compromise the vessel seaworthiness. S/V CAJUN MOON is considered to be
                    in above average conditions and well equipped for his size and intended coastal
                    use. In the opinion of the undersigned surveyor she represents an acceptable
                    insurance risk.

                    This report is issued under the condition that the surveyor is not to be held
                    responsible, under any circumstances whatsoever, for any inaccuracy,
                    omission, misstatement, or error in judgment. To all intents, purposes and
