The Island Packet 460, designed by navel architect Bob Johnson is an incredibly well built blue water cruising yacht. This is rare opportunity to own a sought after Island Packet with custom finished hull in classic midnight blue with matching canvas at a heav,ily reduced price. With only one owner this Island Packet has seen little use since 2020 and as such is in need of a little bit of updating, including: navigation suite upgrade and re-coating of Coppercoat anti fouling and is priced accordingly. Very low hours on both recently serviced engine and generator. Currently hauled out in a boatyard on the south coast of Grenada.

Sonar was built by Island Packet Yachts in the USA in 2008. She is constructed of GRP with beige decks with beige non-skid and blue topsides. She is Coppercoated which was last retouched in 2019 when some small pimple blisters in a few areas were treated.
Sonar was sailed from Portsmouth (UK) in Sept 2009 to Grenada via Gibraltar and Canary Islands after being purchased and commissioned as new from the UK IP dealer earlier in 2009.
She has been based at Le Phare Bleu Marina in Grenada since she arrived in December 2009. She has cruised regularly up and down the West Indian islands for 3/4 months each year and spent one season based in Antigua until Covid struck in March 2020. She has been moored at Le Phare Bleu with regular weekly inspections and engine/generator checks since then. The Raymarine navigation computer is now 13 years old (it was earmarked for upgrade/replacement in 2022 but Covid intervened). Plumbing and hull repairs are also overdue and the 13 year old Coppercoat has worn thin and needs a refresh. She has been a wonderful, reliable and much loved asset for me for the entire time I have owned her - but octogenarians come to realise that they are soon to become nonagenarians and there are even fewer of them still sailing!
Sonar has a UK Part 1 Registration and there are no outstanding mortgages or encumbrances.
