OverviewGrateful Parrot II is a truly wonderful example of the coveted flagship yacht from world renowned builders Island Packet, known for their outstanding build quality and overall commitment to excellence. This 485 has been extremely well looked after and is outfitted for serious offshore cruising and circumnavigation. She is ready to go and looking for a new owner to start making memories and adventures to remember.
This remarkable example is a pure offshore blue water cruiser capable of 'True' sailing. She has everything you need and more, with first-rate systems and enough storage space to keep a cruising family/couples comfortable for months at a time.
