Passport 40 sloops are bluewater capable boats. The construction and quality of material used make for a stable and forgiving boat for the bay or ocean. I would be happy to talk to anyone considering this brand.

Pros:
Cons:

Strong, capable and fast. Good light air performance, superior to noted tricked out high end Maine boats. Good performance in a breeze as well. The boat is stiff and carries a lot of sail to weather and she reaches like a spooked Wahoo when the wind is up.

C-1500 1998 vetern with real tropical storm expierence. Finished in 9D / 20H
10 of which was hove to in Mitch.
Would not have wanted to be on any other boat in this size range.

Just finished 14month 9K mile cruise with no failures of hardware , rig or structure components.

Six years of ownership continues to build my appreciation for this design.

I love this boat. With luck, she will finish her (first) circumnavigation in a few weeks. She's been great. I purchased her when I knew nothing about boats, and as I've learned more over the years it's been so wonderful that she has turned out to be exactly the kind of boat that I want. I know people who were not so fortunate in this way, who got a boat that they grew apart from after learning more about their sailing style and their boat. Too fast, too slow, too big, too small, too ugly, too wet, too bouncy, two many hulls (just kidding), and etc...

So I love my Passport 40 more than when we first met 10 (?) years ago. She's so stable and predictable, she's never done anything that I didn't expect her to. She gives me a lot of confidence. We sail onto the anchor in close quarters. We don't miss tacks in gales, and I have never felt the need to stay up all night at the helm. We haul in the trades, and she keeps going well enough in light winds. Every long passage with her has been magical. My fondest memories are of my wife, my children, and being at sea on my Passport 40.

this Bob Perry Design is a wonderfully built boat that loves to please. fit, finish, solid teak quality are top shelf. the boat thrives in 15 -20 knot wind and my surgeon wife has been known to sit on the stern rail in 25 knots against my advice. this boat is hands down better than any sabre, bristol etc i have been on and its a better value.

11,000 miles of offshore sailing in less than 18 months and as pretty now as the day she was delivered. Safe, strong and beautiful, what more could one ask ,the Passport Vista 515CC.
