Passport 40's are magnificent yachts designed by the renowned Robert Perry and built in Taiwan to exacting standards. Passport 40's are a world class cruising boat, equal parts rugged voyager and elegant yacht. It is a boat that you can be proud of and one that can carry you to any corner of the globe. Passport 40's were launched in 1980 and remained in production through 1991, with 148 boats built. Many have cruised extensively and are still sailing. In some way, Passport 40's and other similar vintage Perry designed cruisers trace their roots, or at least their basic underwater hull shapes, to the Valiant 40. Although not a double-ender like the Valiant, the Passport 40 was considered a performance cruiser in its day. It remains a nimble, easily handled boat that performs well. Perry's combination of a traditional style deck with a modified fin and skeg underbody produced a very successful formula for cruising boats.

This Passport 40 is no exception. The current owners have meticulously maintained and loved her. They have kept her up to date and have sailed her regularly making sure that everything works and works well. She is ready to go bluewater cruising.
