Dream Weaver was purchased from her original owner in Spring of 2017, after an extensive search, for a non-stop Pacific crossing, from San Diego to Japan. Since new, she was lightly used and meticulously maintained by caring and knowledgeable owners.
Major replacements and upgrades performed by qualified professionals totaling more than $70,000 since 2018 include, but not limited to: complete replacement of standing and running rigging, full servicing of all winches, new line clutches and additional winches; servicing of engine and generator, including replacement of engine manifold and exhaust elbow of generator; all new mast wiring, all lights switched to LED and complete replacement of the 1,000AH battery bank; new electronics (Axiom 12 chartplotter, Iridium GO, AIS-B…) and autopilot; new bottom paint and hull waxing; Viking RescU Pro 6, Jordan series drogue, and EPIRB.
Online access to digital file with all invoices, manuals, pictures etc. will be made available to interested parties.
Distinguishing factors: Complete overhaul in 2018, in pristine condition and ready for a circumnavigation tomorrow as proven by recent non-stop Pacific crossing; new 1,000AH battery bank, DuoGen3 electricity generator, 7.6kw diesel generator and solar panels assure abundant electricity; Boom furling, electric halyard winch and Lewmar 48 and 16 winches with dual rope clutches on starboard and port sides make line handling easy; Autoprop is very effective when under power and efficient when under sail. Two zones of reverse-cycle air/heat, custom made mattress, and custom carpet add to the comfort of this already comfortable boat.
Now, after safely and comfortably completing the non-stop 7,000 nautical mile passage from the US to Japan with only a totally blind sailor and a novice sailor as captain and crew, she is ready to continue the dream with a new owner.

Designed with Island Packet Yachts' exclusive Full Foil Keel, the Island Packet 40 unifies the performance attributes of modern hull and foil designs with the superior safety, enhanced steering qualities, and more seakindly motion available only with a long keel. This feature brings numerous benefits to the cruising sailor: superior protection from damage or fouling of prop and rudder, an integral hull and keel construction for the strongest possible unified structure, a moderate draft with exceptional stability characteristics for shallow water gunkholing or worldwide voyaging, and winning performance capabilities. Full-length cabin top handrails, double lifelines with welded bow and stern rails, recessed foredeck with bulwarks, and a premium, slip-resistant surface of a contrasting low-glare gelcoat all contribute to offshore safety. Forward, the integral bowsprit-anchor platform increases sail area, improves sheeting angles for enhanced windward performance, and provides ready stowage and immediate access for ground tackle. The 8-foot long cockpit has full-length contoured seats offering plenty of room for comfortable sitting or stretching out. A premium, console-mounted rack and pinion steering system is employed for its exceptional feel and rugged reliability. Integrated into the custom steering console are the single-lever engine control, compass, and flip-up cockpit table. The standard cutter rig used has furling systems on both the genoa and self-tending staysail. (Note: Dream Weaver was modified with full-batten in-boom furling, and staysail boom was removed. This allows greater control of staysail, more foredeck space, and makes tacking the jib easier.] The skipper has a variety of sail combinations available that are readily adaptable to maximize comfort, safety and performance over a wide range of wind and sea conditions. The generous sail plan, utilizing three simply managed sails, coupled with the easily-driven, long-waterline hull form, assures excellent light-air performance. Belowdecks, two double staterooms, well-separated for privacy, and each with an adjoining head and shower, combine with an expansive central living area to provide a gracious setting. Overhead handrails, bulkhead handgrips and an easily maintained, molded slip-resistant cabin sole offer sure-footed movement while underway. The wraparound galley is equipped with a host of detail features for both convenience and safety. The L-shaped settee in the main salon can be quickly converted to an extra double berth with its built-in pullout panel. Forward, there is an elegant, full-width owner's stateroom, with generous stowage. The aft stateroom is similarly roomy and inviting, and has a huge double berth. The engine is mounted on a molded engine bed with an integral drip pan. Fastidious mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems are all in evidence here and are easily accessible through a removable front panel, hinged side panels and an aft cover. All Island Packet 40 structural laminates and internal reinforcements are designed to meet or exceed rigid ABS standards for offshore yachts. Hulls are molded of knitted triaxial roving, offering vastly superior impact and puncture resistance compared to conventional woven rovings or cored construction. Deck laminates are engineered for high-strength with reduced weight, utilizing Island Packet's exclusive PolyCore system. Interior construction features an engineered grid system and reinforced fiberglass structure fully bonded with the hull to form a unit structure of immense strength and durability.
