We are still looking for the right boat, at the right price
and were recently cruising the Gulf Islands and Inside Passage
of B.C. where we came across an Islander Passage
41 (deep keel). We found no listings on Yachtworld for a Passage 41, however we did find several listings for Islander Freeport
with 5'6 keel
. We noted these yachts are a little beamier but do have a raised bow and seem to appear to be a bluewater boat. We have searched the internet
and have found no information about them other than the company in California
built about 65 yachts and then went into bankruptcy. There is no information about seaworthiness or construction quality, however, there are note on how people very much love their boats and seem to be long-time owners. Does anyone know anything about these yachts and their bluewater seaworthiness?
Thanks and hope everyone has had a great summer.
