Forward is the large guest stateroom with island berth and abundant storage with an assortment of lockers, cabinets, drawers and shelves. A door provides private access to the adjacent head to port. The head features a VacuFlush toilet, separate shower stall and Corian vanity countertop with integrally molded sink. To starboard is the unique third cabin configured as an office/workshop. It also doubles as a laundry room with a convenient washer/dryer combo behind teak doors. The desktop can also be converted to a double berth. Next aft is the roomy main salon with panoramic views through an array of large windows. To port and starboard are full length settees with the starboard settee convertible to a double berth. Halogen reading lights have been mounted at the aft end of each settee. Island Packet's signature bulkhead-mounted dining table stows against the forward bulkhead. Melaka II also has a beautiful custom dining table that is removable. Next aft to port is the very impressive navigation station featuring a high backed swivel armchair, large navigation desk with storage beneath, chart storage, brass clock & barometer, and a wet locker. To port is the gourmet galley with Corian counter surfaces. The open galley layout provides ample room for two to work comfortably. The refrigerator and freezer are in separate adjacent compartments, each controlled by individual thermostats. There is a 3-burner LPG stove with oven. Next aft is the owner's stateroom with a queen-sized island berth and plenty of cabinets, lockers, drawers and shelves, as well as a dressing chair to starboard. The private aft head is ensuite and features Corian countertops with integrally molded sink, VacuFlush toilet and separate shower stall. The ergonomically designed cockpit features a dedicated bin designed to hold an 8-person valise-pack life raft. Aft of the cockpit is a large deck area that can be used for dinghy storage or as a sundeck. The roomy swim platform features twin molded-in steps to the aft deck, a hot-cold shower and a telescoping swim ladder. There are 15 opening ports with screens, 6 deck hatches with Ocean Air screens/shades, and 4 stainless steel dorade style vents with screens.
