The interior of Ruby Lee features a bright main salon, gourmet galley, impressive navigation center, two heads with enclosed showers and two comfortable staterooms with island berths. There is teak joinery throughout the boat and approximately 7' of headroom. Ruby Lee is equipped with a three zone, 33,000 BTU reverse cycle air conditioning system. She also has plenty of light and ventilation with 15 stainless steel ports, 6 large windows, 6 opening hatches and 10 Hella Turbo fans. The ports are equipped with removable Peek-a-Boo blinds and the hatches have Ocean Air screens and shades for privacy.
The spacious main salon has two full-length settees, covered with tan UltraLeather upholstery. The port settee converts to a double berth and a large dining table folds down from the forward bulkhead to reveal a wine rack. The table opens up and extends all the way from the starboard settee to the port settee. A flat screen TV is mounted on the port side of the forward bulkhead and there are shelves and cabinets located above the settees.
The navigation center is truly exceptional! It is adjacent to the companionway steps on the port side of the boat. There is a plush high-back swivel armchair, large chart table with storage below, shelving and plenty of room for electronics. The wet locker and electric panels are located in the navigation center.
The secure and functional galley is aft of the main salon to starboard and centerline. Please see the following equipment list. There are two large Corian counters on either side of the galley. The galley is secure, well-lit and has plenty of ventilation with opening ports. It features a top loading freezer, top loading refrigerator, double stainless steel sink, Force 10 stove/oven, microwave oven, pull out trash bin, built-in dish racks, cutlery drawer, abundant cabinets, and a water purifier.
The staterooms are located forward and aft and are equally appealing. Both staterooms have double island berths with pillow-top mattresses, flat screen TV's, separate HVAC thermostats, hanging lockers, cabinets with shelves and en-suite heads with enclosed showers. The base panels of the berths lift up, with the assistance of gas support struts, to reveal a large storage areas that is perfect for linens, blankets and towels. The aft stateroom has a seat on the starboard side and there is a access door to the aft storage area (garage).
Each head has a VacuFlush electric toilet, Corian counter top, stainless steel sink, Hallo Turbo fan, hatch, ports, cabinetry and enclosed shower stall. The forward head is accessible from both the main salon and the forward stateroom.
Recessed foredecks with bulwarks, uncluttered side decks and full length cabin top handrails provide safe footing and security on deck. Sail controls for setting, furling and sheeting all lead to the safety and security of the cockpit.
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.
