Manufacturer Provided Description

The Estero has been created in direct response to market demands for a smaller Island Packet model that offers all of the quality, comforts and capabilities synonymous with our larger yachts, with increased emphasis on ease of use and innovative features. Our decision to use a name for this new model (vs. a number) was made in part to reflect the evolutionary change the Estero represents in our 30 year history.The Estero features a fully roller furling and self-tending sloop rig. With the self vanging feature of the Hoyt boom equipped jib, both sails provide maximum performance and control on all points. Sailing upwind will be particularly close winded thanks to the tight sheeting of the jib, and tacking requires no more crew activity than turning the helm. Downwind performance is also optimized since the main and jib can be set "wing-and-wing". This is a simple and versatile rig that is easily set, reefed, furled and trimmed from the comfort and security of the cockpit. There is also enough room forward of the jib stay to fly a code-zero or other (owner provided) larger headsail if desired for added performance in light conditions.


Upon entering through the companionway you will find a rich and spacious interior featuring the main salon situated forward of the mast in an "open-U" configuration. A central drop-leaf table provides ample area for owners and guests.  Moving aft a U-shaped galley to port provides deep double stainless stell sinks, two burner LP stove/oven, generous storage above and below the counter tops.  Large refrigerated iceboxes provide cold storage.  

Opposite the galley to starboard is the large head compartment with separate shower stall and seat. The vanity with sink has several storage areas, plus additional room is available in a cabinet outboard. The shower area may double as a wet locker when needed.

Aft of the head and to starboard of the companionway is the aft quarterberth cabin and navigation station. A pocket door on an overhead track closes off this area when desired, 

Aft of the galley and to port of the companionway is the private owner's stateroom featuring a large double berth, hanging locker, bureau, shelf and a full length mirror.
