Looking at the boat from aft you notice the teak and stainless swim ladder. The aft cockpit is traditionally laid out with an aft helm seat and two large settees. The helm sports an updated NavPod system with a set of Raymarine depth, wind, and smart auto pilot. Below the traditional sailing instruments is a newer Raymarine C90W multi screen. All of the ship’s information is sent to this screen including current ship’s position, the radar and a fishfinder.
On deck Margaritaville is well equipped for cruising. She sports a CQR anchor as well as a Danforth style anchor. There are two rodes: A 60 foot chain attached to a 55 foot rode and a 10 foot chain attached to an 80 foot rode. The canvas was all replaced in 2008 and it looks good. The owner just put the finishing touches on the varnish in April of 2014 and it shows. The owners completely gel stripped the bottom of the boat in 2011 and the bottom looks great. This boat is on a monthly maintenance program and it shows.
Stepping forward through the hatch you see the u-shaped galley to port and a navigation station to starboard complete with an upgraded VHF and a newer AM/FM/CD. Just aft of the Navigation Station is a quarterberth. The whole area closes off to form a unique aft cabin. The main salon sports two large settees and a fold-down dinette for four. The starboard settee expands to form a double bunk. Forward of the starboard settee is a very roomy head with a shower and a seat. Across from the head is a hanging locker. Moving forward again takes you to the v-berth. A rope and chain locker is forward of the v-berth. This is a classic cruiser layout that maximizes your living and storage space.
Margaritaville is a typical cutter rigged Island Packet, but one of her many strong points is the sail inventory. The main and the cruising chute were new in 2007 and the jib was restitched the same year. There is a set of lazy jacks to make flaking the main extremely easy.
This boat is equipped with a reliable Yanmar 3GM30F diesel and a packless sealing system. The mechanical systems run very well.
