I found there was a quite diverse menu on the passport table:
Passport 40 40.0 Perry
Passport 41 41.0 Perry
Passport 42 42.0 Huntingford
Passport 44 43.0 Perry
Passport 45 45.0 Doug Peterson/Huntingford
Passport 456 45.0 perry
Passport 47 47.0 Perry
Passport 49 49.0 Perry
Passport 50 50.0 Huntingford
Main source of above info is "sailboat data".
And then I have seen and been on others that were derivates built in strip-plank or even steel
. The ones I have sailed (Slocum 43, which is same hull
as Passport 42, and the 45/458) were well built boats, sailing wonderfully well once in the groove. None, well none that I have been on, were racing
boats, just built for comfort.
BTW the '45' model was imported and marketed initially by the Passport company, but later sold as the Liberty 458, which in turn has a lot of things common with the Kelly Peterson
'Sailboatdata' gives a good overview, but states that all boats were built in Taiwan
by their ‘yard’. I seem to remember that more than one builder
was used by Passport and maybe even one in China
, but that is only going on memory.
Sailboatdata.com is the worlds largest sailboat database.
and type in, next to 'boat': :"passport"
Or, if you have any questions, ask the company:
hmmm, of course the answers could be biased toward their brand......
