Tivoli, the Island Packet 485, is a captain-maintained, cutter-rigged sailing vessel, with an owner who demands perfection. The boat is kept on a private dock in a protected cove and hauled every year. The bottom is power washed and repainted annually.

The Island Packet 485 is a center cockpit with a raked stem and reverse transom with boarding steps and platform. She has six opening hatches for an open feeling in the cabins and salon. Four dorade vents and 14 opening port lights provide plenty of fresh air and light. Double lifelines and two side gates allow easy boarding. 

The highly optimized use of canvas will extend your sailing season and comfort level.

Manufacturer Provided Description:

The Island Packet 485 builds on the exemplary qualities that have made Island Packet yachts respected and admired around the world. Naval architect Bob Johnson created the IP485 by combining the superior comfort, ease of use, sea keeping, and safety that have always been the foundation of the Island Packet concept, along with the innovative features and stunning good looks that will again set benchmarks for the cruising sailor.

The IP485 provides enormous living space, enough storage to hold gear for a circumnavigation, enough sail to speed you comfortably to your destination, and the convenience of managing it all from the cockpit. From the broad anchor platform to the spacious stern boarding area, the 485’s deck abounds with features you will appreciate. 



The teak interior is finished in satin varnish with two tables in the salon. Large cabins create great comfort. A large walk-through galley is a cook's dream. There is a great navigation station to port with a large captain’s chair.

Builders' Comments:

Below, you’ll be immediately impressed with the panoramic view of the open Main Saloon, the spacious forward and aft cabins with private heads, the solid teak and oak soles throughout, the gourmet galley, a multi-use third stateroom, and a Navigation Center that rivals those on much larger yachts. Adjacent to the companionway, the nav station includes a high-backed swivel armchair, inlaid table with storage tray, cabinetry space sufficient to mount a wide variety of equipment you might select, and the master electrical panels for ship-board AC and DC equipment. There’s also a hanging locker suitable for wet gear within reach. This area is so impressive that SAIL Magazine’s Best Boats judges made this comment: “Any offshore navigator would love to call this nerve center home. This is the best equipped nav station we saw this year.”

In the main saloon the starboard settee converts to a double berth when fully extended and both settees double as comfortable sea berths. A large table stows against the forward bulkhead and deploys to create a spacious dining area. CE Category A – Ocean rated safety windows provide a panoramic view and overhead lights and numerous reading lamps with individual dimmers are found throughout. The gourmet Galley is equipped with digitally controlled refrigerator and freezer compartments and double gasketed drop-front lids on gas support struts for easy access. 

Either compartment may be used for refrigerated or frozen storage at the setting of the controls. There’s also a pull-out refrigerator drawer for quick access to popular beverages and food.

Aft is the grand Owner’s Stateroom, with an offset double island berth. Hanging storage with extra height is provided by the outboard hanging locker. Access to the aft lazarette storage area is also made available through the aft bulkhead. Forward is a guest stateroom and head with a double island berth. All staterooms include numerous opening ports and large overhead hatches, providing plenty of light and ventilation. Both berths are surrounded by an array of cabinets, lockers, drawers, and shelves, including hinged lids that lift to reveal blanket trays. The third cabin is across from the forward head and is perfect for a multitude of uses. Both luxurious Heads feature vanities with solid acrylic countertops, separate shower stalls with seats, folding acrylic doors, and standard VacuFlush® heads. Whether cruising the oceans of the world or exploring coastal anchorages, the 485 has been designed and built to take you safely and comfortably to your destination.
