Timeless beauty, top notch building materials, go-anywhere blue water design and construction, sumptuous interior & exterior spaces, unparalleled ride in big seas.  This barely scratches the surface of what makes IP yachts so desirable.  The Island Packet 380 offers the perfect balance of space, displacement, and a sturdy easy-to-manage rig for a cruising couple to venture anywhere on the planet.

This particular IP380 is simply stellar.  Owned by a conscientious cruiser for the last several years, ADAGIO has ventured south from Maine down to the Chesapeake where she has spent her cruising days.  You’d never know it to look at her.  She would be welcome as a proud example of Island Packet prowess at any boat show. This is an opportunity to scoop up a beautifully preserved yacht for a fraction of the cost of a new one

When we first stepped aboard, we were treated to a vessel that is ready to go cruising right now. Our photos and presentation only come close to showing off how well preserved this yacht truly is.

Classic Island Packet lines, a powerful rig, spacious cockpit, easy movement around the decks, and lots of opening ports…You’ll see that this is obviously a passage-making yacht before you even step aboard.

You can easily step aboard at either the port or starboard boarding gates located amidships or from the sugar scoop swim platform stern with a gate that opens up to the helm and cockpit.  The cockpit is almost 7’ long with plenty of room for lots of crew or lounging topsides on a relaxing evening on the hook.  All rigging lines lead aft for easy sail handling, furling, hoisting, and trimming.  The primary and secondary winches are easily reachable from the helm for single-handing. 

Wide side decks take you forward to the mast and foredeck. More winches on the mast facilitate hoisting the jib and staysail onto the furlers.  The teak-capped toe rail bridges the modern finishes of Island Packet with that classic yacht feel. 


The large cockpit has the space to comfortably entertain 6 while also offer enough of an enclosed space for safe cruising in blue-water conditions.  Comfortable green canvas cockpit cushions for the port and starboard long seats as well as for the elevated aft rail seats and helm seat make for a homey and comfortable space.   Wide cockpit coamings offer a comfortable seat back as well as a great space for line storage.  All rigging leads aft and the primary and secondary winches are easily reachable from the helm, allowing for easy single-handing.  Additional protection from the elements is provided by the bimini, dodger and canvas connector.  The swim ladder at the aft rail swings down to allow easy access to the sugar-scoop swim platform.

When it comes to accommodations, Island Packet is famous for space, headroom, and storage!  It could be the foremost reason that people love their Island Packets.  For living aboard and cruising in your home, it doesn’t get better.

There are two large double staterooms, one fore and one aft, as well as a large main salon with a drop-down table that stows against the forward bulkhead, maximizing space.  A U-shaped galley with tons of counter space and storage integrates well with the companionway area and starboard salon seating for an open space that is great for entertaining.  With the two guest cabins separated on either end of the yacht, this layout maximizes privacy.

  • Two- stateroom layout with plenty of privacy

  • Large head forward

  • Headroom 6’5’’

The overall ambiance is one of space, light, and ventilation.  The 6’5’’ headroom gives the vessel a wonderful roomy and light feeling. Two long settees stretch forward to port and starboard with a beautiful teak and holly sole between them.  Deep side-storage located behind each settee with beautiful joinery is complimented by even more deep storage behind and under the settee cushions.  The fold down table stows away easily on the forward salon bulkhead.  The table has a second fold out that allows it to stretch all the way across the main salon to comfortably seat five.

The large U-shaped galley makes cooking and dining a wonderful experience.  So often, yachts have limited counter space due to limited space in a boat’s floor plan…not so with the galley of the 380.  With counter space on either side of the oven and added counterspace over the large double-compartment refrigeration that stretches out underneath the companionway, there is plenty of space to work with here.  The deep storage in the cabinetry along with the added top-loading deep locker, the custom plate and bowl holders aft, and tons of drawer and cabinet space all offer storage for long passages.

The owner’s cabin is forward with a spacious queen-sized centerline v-berth with walk-around cutout spaces for easily getting in and out of bed.  So often, V-berths have to be raised up in order to offer enough hull width for a spacious bed.  Because the hull of the 380 carries so much beam so far forward, the v-berth bed is low and easy to get in and out of.  His and hers storage cabinets lie to both sides of the cabin   There is direct private access to the port head.

When we travel with clients FAR out of town for yachts, we don't like surprises when we get there. It's embarrassing for us and can make for an expensive trip. With that in mind, we'd like to share our rating of various systems on the boat so you'll be as informed as possible before you come for a visit. Our rating system is on a 1-10 scale with 10 being 'near perfect' (in OUR opinion). Please view this list as a GUIDE only. Everyone's idea of good and bad can vary quite a bit and everyone brings a different expectation to the yacht shopping process. Our goal in doing this is to help you reach a comfort level with the boat before you invest time and energy to come and see it. We'll summarize by saying that this appears to be an excellent yacht worthy of serious consideration.

Beyond telling you what’s great about a yacht, don’t you also want to know what it needs next?  Every yacht, no matter how seemingly turn-key, needs something. Every owner has next year’s list of ‘to-do’s, right?  We’ll also include in this section what Erin and I think the boat could use to take her from nearly perfect to ‘voyage-ready’ for your next adventure.

Overall Rating: 9.25/10


Yes, really.  We are privileged to be able to pick and choose the yachts we list.  Often they’re ‘nice’ but not ‘great.’   This yacht is ‘awesome.’  Yeah, yeah, we sound like salesmen (which we are).  That said, this yacht is in superb condition.  When we arrived to see her for the first time, her owner had prepared her to look like she is headed to a boat show.  Very well maintained and thoughtfully updated, the hull both above and below the waterline is in excellent shape.  The decks are in great shape and the teak looks really good and is freshly varnished.  The overall layout of the boat, both above and below decks, is really well configured for long range cruising as well as living aboard.  The IP 380 is about the largest 38’ yacht you can buy that is blue-water capable, has incredible amounts of storage, a sail plan completely managed from the huge cockpit (will accommodate my reclined 6’-2” length), and really inviting spaces below.  The owners berth is low and centerline up forward. The head is spacious. The salon works great, especially with the retractable salon table, and the galley is a chef’s galley for sure.  We looked hard for blemishes and can’t find any so far.  Everywhere we looked, whether bilges, storage spaces, or engine room, we’re very impressed

Exterior: 9.5/10


Having cruised extensively ourselves, we’re looking for several ‘zones’ of success in a blue water cruising yacht.  The most important space is the cockpit and on deck because that’s where we plan to spend the most time.   The cockpit on ADAGIO is deep and comfortable.  The coamings are tall and sturdy for good bracing while healed, providing excellent comfort and safety far out at sea.  Movement into and out of the cockpit to the decks or down below is easy even in rough seas.  The hatch opening to spaces below is large enough that when you and crew are both above and below decks, you’re well within sight and earshot of each other at all times.  For entertaining, guests can be both in and out of the boat and still feel together. EVERYTHING you need to manage the boat underway is right at your fingertips or just a step or two away -- critical characteristics for offshore heavy air sailing.  You can safely navigate around the decks while healed with plenty of thing to grab as you head forward.

  • Hull is shiny, decks are spotless, rig looks good, teak freshly varnished and maintained

  • Rigged for single handed sailing

  • Comfortable protected cockpit with easy access to gear and decks

  • Wide fiberglass decks with great access to rig and systems on deck

  • Exterior canvas all in excellent shape and recently replaced

Interior:  9.5/10

You have to step aboard an Island Packet 380 to appreciate the incredible craftsmanship. Top quality materials abound.  The joinery is superb.  Solid woods are used as much as possible. This is a big boat and feels like it as you pass through interior spaces.  That said, there’s no place you can be where there isn’t something substantial to grab hold of while moving around in rough seas.  The galley is one of the best we’ve encountered.  There’s lots of space around the sink area, on both sides of the range.  There’s lots of fridge/freezer space.

  • An inviting and open main salon seats a bunch of people and is open to the chef’s galley and nav area.

  • Upholstery has been updated and looks really good

  • Storage is available everywhere you look and it’s deep and versatile

  • Large opening hatches and huge side fixed windows provide great ventilation and good natural lighting throughout the boat (everything opens)

  • The navigation station is large and very well located with close proximity and easy access to the cockpit

  • Teak and holly soles are in great shape throughout the boat

  • Engine access is thoughtfully laid out

Electronics/Electrical Systems: 8.5/10

The electronics on this boat are high quality and cover all the bases for voyaging.  They just have a few years on them.  The B&G network instruments cover the basics.  The Raymarine plotter is big and it’s hard to beat their operating system and ergonomics.  Very easy to use.  The autopilot has been updated recently.  So, why the 8.5?  It’s the age of the electronics.  They’ll be totally adequate for bay cruising and light coastal cruising.  If you’re going to head off on a serious long passage, most buyers will probably update at least the radar/chartploter with something newer and faster.  No need to change the autopilot as it’s recent.  We would probably update from the original B&G gear as well.  AIS would be good to have.  If we were buying the boat, we’d pick up last year’s model year of the latest Raymarine touch screen plotter and an HD radar unit along with new depth/wind/speed instrumentation.

  • Top quality Raymarine radar/chart plotting and B&G Network instruments, circa early 2000’s

  • There are (4) GRP31 recently installed house batteries for 420 amp hours along with a GRP 27 starting battery

  • Nice 1500w inverter and battery monitoring system

  • We think, for serious passage making, the boat needs some form of supplemental power generation in the form of wind machines or solar panels

  • There’s a Fischer Panda 4kW genset but we’re only casually mentioning it because it has a mind of its own and can run perfectly or not at all. It will convey ‘as is.’ Ask for more details.

Engine Room: 9.5/10 (visual inspection only)


Mounted well below the steps and almost horizontal, the engine is easily accessed and serviced.  The Racor fuel filter is mounted right on the opening starboard door in the galley which is perfect for quick access.  Engine has been well maintained and has very low hours for the boat’s age at 1636 hours since new.  This owner is a true sailor and uses the engine only when necessary.

  • Good access to systems

  • Hoses, mounts, belts look good

  • Regular service performed and records to back it up

  • Yanmar makes probably one of the best propulsion systems in the business

Galley/Head Systems: 9.5/10


I’m a chef and this is chef’s galley for sure.  Great counter space.  High quality appliances.  Fantastic fridge and freezer space (as in huge).  Dual compressors to separate fridge/freezer plates. Storage compartments and spaces are thoughtfully laid out for maximum efficiency and DEEP. We like that the galley is out of the way of passage through the yacht. The chef does not impede traffic flow through the boat. The head is more like a bathroom with lots of space, and a really large shower.

  • Tons of counter space and deep storage

  • High-end appliances

  • Huge dual compressor/plate fridge/freezer system

  • Large comfortable head


Rig & Sails: 8.0/10

Sails in very good condition and should have some life left though they are original.  Regularly maintained, no repairs have been needed, the sails look really good.   They are removed each season, examined/serviced at a loft and stored indoors for several months each year.  The rig is original and inspected regularly.  Much of the running rigging is recent.  The rig is completely managed from the cockpit so single-handed sailing is a breeze.  The cutter rig is perfect for reducing sail in a big blow easily and safely.  Erin and I think you’ll get some good life out of the sails yet.  Our rating is due to the sails being original along with original standing rigging.  It should be fine for bay and coastal use until you're ready to head seriously off shore.
