42′ Island Packet 420
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.

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
