NICOLINA II has a flag blue hull painted with linear polyurethane.  A white boot stripe just above the dark red bottom paint indicates a well trimmed vessel.  A rub rail with stainless steel striker plate protects the hull sides.  A varnished teak caprail tops a wide bulwark rising which rises towards the bow for secure footing.  Another stainless steel protective molded is secured to the outer perimeter of the caprail to further protect the hull sides from pilings and other hazards.  The scoop transom is one of the nicest features on this model.   Large molded steps on either side of the transom make for easy access through the stern rails to the water.   The transom non-skid is beige to keep it cool underfoot in the tropics.  A hot/cold freshwater shower nozzle and control valve are mounted in the lower port step.  A telescoping stainless steel swim ladder is housed beneath a hinged cover on centerline and is deployable from the water for safety.  The bow has a graceful overhang with a molded an integral, molded in anchor platform supporting double bow rollers.  The bow platform is capped with varnished teak.

Stainless steel stanchions mounted well outboard atop the caprail support double vinyl coated lifelines.  Boarding gates are located on each midships and on each side of the transom.  The bow pulpit extends fully forward to the tip of the anchor platform.  A Stainless steel multifunctional stern arch is welded into the pushpits on the quarters.  A folding seat and outboard motor storage bracket are mounted on the centerline stern rail.  The arch provides superb mounting for antennas, wind generator, solar panels, rod holders, and dinghy davits.  Side rungs make access to these to these antennas easy and are great for the kids to jump off while swimming.  The arch mounted dinghy davit is a much better solution to dinghy storage than the standard boom crane for the Island Packet 485.  It’s far easier to use, clears the aft deck, and gets the dinghy up high enough for safe offshore passages while still allowing the transom swim step to be used with the dinghy fully raised.

An offshore sailing yacht of this size just begs for a well-protected center cockpit.  NICOLINA II has the optional glass windshield with a soft dodger top, bimini and full cockpit enclosure.  All sail controls are lead to the cockpit for safe offshore sail handling.  Visibility is excellent from the cockpit.  Seatback coamings are tall enough for good back support and wide enough for sitting and stepping on.  Navigation instruments are mounted in a large Whitlock pedestal and nav pod.  Vinyl covered mesh cockpit cushions with green piping are very comfortable and robustly fabricated.  A back support is aft of the helm.  The custom Island Packet engine panel is mounted to port of the helm in a cockpit coaming recess.  A teak folding drop leaf cockpit table is mounted on the steering pedestal.  Coaming cuddies for line tails are forward to port and starboard.  Stereo speakers are mounted in the cockpit coaming forward and also in the outer cockpit coaming facing the aft “party” deck.  A deep cockpit locker with hinged lid is located in the forward port cockpit settee.  The Winslow liferaft, flares, and life preservers are currently stored in this locker.

The Island Packet 485’s side decks are wide and easy to move about.  Non-skid is a slightly darker beige than the gloss waterways and trunk cabin sides.  The molded-in diamond pattern is a nice balance of traction and comfort under bare foot while being easy to clean.  Mooring cleats are mounted in the caprail.  A large bow storage locker is accessed through a Lewmar deck hatch.  Anchor rode bins are on either side of this locker.  Racks for lines are to port.  A deck fitting for the salt water wash down hose is flush mounted just inboard of the bulwark to port of the hatch.  The aft deck is wide and spacious.  A flush hatch on centerline accesses the very large stern storage locker.   This space easily stores extra sails, folding bikes, dive gear, fenders, extra lines, and other gear one would prefer not to lug through the companionway hatch.  The watermaker and steering systems are found in this space and easy to inspect and service.  A flush hatch to port hinges open to access the propane locker where two large aluminum gas bottles are mounted.   A smaller deck locker is to starboard beneath the flush, hinged hatch.

The raised trunk cabin is fitted with an array of fixed ports, opening ports, overhead hatches, and cowl vents with dorade boxes to provide visibility, natural light, and ventilation.  Stainless steel handrails run along each side of the coachroof.  Teak non-slip steps are strategically placed around the cockpit and aft deck for stepping into or out of the cockpit.  A varnished teak eyebrow trim strip around the coachroof sides accents the coachroof profile.  Mast “granny” bars on either side of the mast are fitted for support.

Island Packet is renowned for their robust, accessible, and reliable systems and NICOLINA II is no exception.  Great efforts have been made to minimize engine and genset noise with lead lining the engine space and a separate sound enclosure for the genset.  A Python shaft coupling on the propeller shaft allows the use of soft engine mounts.  Access is superb and extensive labeling of hoses, through hulls and switches makes operation and maintenance a cinch for the novice or experienced boat owner.  The fuel, water, and holding tanks are mounted below the salon cabin sole to maximize stability and storage while minimize trim changes.

From Island Packet’s brochure for this model:  Exceptions in italic.


Entering the interior from the cockpit on the comfortably angled companionway steps, one will be immediately impressed by the expansive main saloon with panoramic views through an array of large windows.  Full length settees with gently angled shapes luxurious upholstery, and an open central area invite socializing and gracious entertaining.  A hallmark Island Packet feature, the saloon table stows against the forward bulkhead and easily deploys to create a large dining area when desired.  Settees extend on built-in rollers for table seating, with the starboard side converting to a double berth when fully extended.  A smaller, removable table is also provided with a lift-out post for mounting at either side of the saloon for occasional use.  The navigation center, adjacent the companionway in its own spacious alcove, features a high backed swivel armchair, inlaid table with storage tray, and cabinetry space sufficient to mount whatever equipment is likely to be selected.  A hinged, vertical storage bin neatly stows charts aft of the seat, and the master electrical panels for shipboard A-C and D-C equipment are within easy reach of both the nav area and companionway.


The galley has a wide, open layout with ample room for two or more to work comfortably together, and three opening ports to keep it light and airy.  Two insulated compartments outboard have drop-front design hinged lids on gas strut supports for easy access.  With extensive insulation and gasketing, these may be configured into refrigerator or freezer compartments as desired.  A pull-out refrigerated drawer is included for quick access to popular beverages and foods, while all the conveniences one has come to expect from island Packet are also provided, including built-in dish racks and cutlery drawers, deep double sinks, trash bin, microwave, and abundant cabinet and locker storage.  Further enhancements include custom Corian counter surface with integral sea rails, Force-10 LPG range with broiler, extra harness attachments, and a water purifying system serving all interior cold water sink taps.  The spacious design of this exemplary galley will make it a pleasure to use.


Entering the owner’s stateroom aft, one is welcomed by the attractive offset queen-sized island berth surrounded by a wide teak and holly sole and array of cabinets, locker, drawers and shelves, as well as a luxurious dressing chair.  Extra height rods are provided outboard in the hanging locker, and a vanity area with a mirror and drawer sits just forward of the berth.  The private aft head is located ensuite, and features a vanity with integrally molded Granulon countertop and sink, separate shower stall with teak seat and folding acrylic doors, and a standard VacuFlush head situated in an alcove with a curved Granulon countertop forming secure and comfortable seating.

The wide aft deck house has numerous opening ports at the cabin sides and on the aft face, a central overhead hatch and two Dorade vents to make this entire living area particularly bright and well ventilated.  A door is provided for access to the lazarette storage area through the aft bulkhead.

The forward guest stateroom features private access to the adjacent head, a large double island berth, and an array of lockers, cabinets, drawers and shelves suitable for extended stay aboard.  As in the owner’s stateroom aft, the berth top hinges on gas support struts to reveal a blanket tray underneath.  Several ports and an overhead hatch provide ample light and ventilation.  The forward head compartment has a vanity with a wrap-around Granulon counter and integral sink, plus a separate stall shower with teak seat and folding acrylic doors.  An electric drain pump is standard for both forward and aft showers, plus sole drains in the vanity/head areas are provided for routine clean up.  The VacuFlush toilet is located in a curved area of the vanity counter to provide “captain’s chair” seating.  Two opening ports, an overhead hatch and Dorade vent keep this area bright and fresh.

The third cabin, located across from the forward head, has been configured to be a multi-use area, suitable for both an office and workshop.  The L-shaped counter/desk/bench has built in cabinets under each end and a central knee-well with a retracting upholstered chair operated by the push of a button.  A washer/dryer is located in a dedicated locker below the forward counter.

Select teak hardwoods and veneers are used for interior bulkheads, cabinetry and trim, with deluxe raised panel cabin doors, extensive radiaus corner detailing, cedar lined lockers and drawers, and teak and holly soles in all staterooms as well as the forward passageway and main saloon.  A furniture quality satin varnish finish covers all interior wood surfaces.  Slip resistant molded cabin soles are located in head and shower compartments, galley, nav center and companionway area.  Premium designer fabrics and surfaces harmonize and compliment the luxurious interior throughout.

Ample interior natural light and ventilation is provided by a total of fifteen stainless steel opening ports, six opening overhead hatches with built-in Ocean Air shades and screens, and seven large fixed saloon windows with stainless steel exterior frames and deep tinted safety glass that exceed CE Category-“A” requirements.  Numerous lights are located throughout the interior for general illumination, reading or night lighting in key areas.  Convenience lights are also installed in deck lockers, bilge areas and machine spaces.
