Manufacturer Provided Description

The center cockpit 445 possesses all the exemplary qualities that have earned Island Packet a worldwide reputation as the leader of cruising boat design and construction. Naval architect Bob Johnson and the Island Packet design team have created the 445 by combining the superior comfort, ease of use, seakeeping, and safety attributes that are the hallmark of every Island Packet, along with innovative new features and stunning good looks that will further reinforce Island Packet's position as America's Cruising Yacht Leader. Tankage and storage on the 445 is exceptional. All tanks are centrally located below the cabin sole, benefiting stability and interior storage space elsewhere in the yacht with minimal effect on trim. Every detail, from the geared rack and pinion steering system to the swedged and threaded fuel hose fittings, is carefully chosen for its important contribution to long term quality and reliability. Numerous details like magnetic reed bilge pump switches and thru-bolts with lock nuts on both seacocks and prop shaft couplings typify the approach to building every aspect of an Island Packet. Heavy duty, high output alternators with Digital Duo-Charge controllers, premium pre-tinned wiring, and large capacity absorbed glass mat (AGM) batteries reflect the many quality features built into the 445 that help ensure the owner years of comfortable, trouble-free cruising.

KOPANO features two sizable private staterooms, fore and aft, and each offers a sanctuary to escape and rest.  Either cabin is large enough to use as a master and each is equipped with a walk-around queen berth.  Both berths are on gas struts that allow them to be lifted to access a large storage area underneath, perfect for extra clothes, spares, tools, safety gear etc... The aft stateroom includes a separate chair and mirror with built-in jewelry drawer.  The outboard hanging locker is extra height and is cedar lined.  A compartment door in the aft bulkhead provides interior access to the large aft lazarette.  A large ensuite  head is just forward to port and has a separate shower stall.
