Assuming you are talking about Passport , you are correct. Originally built in Taiwan, but changed sometime in 2003

I have a 2009 quote for the Passport 52 , built out of Xiamen ( that is in China)

At one stage Taiwan boat builders were worried a lot by the labour cost argument posed by China builders

The skill factor , together with the unit labour cost has meant that the balance between the two countries was "lineball"
