pearson 424 vs. passport 40

Philip:

If I forgot to mention it, the basic underbody of the Passport 40 and the P 424 are quite similar. (I can hear both designers grinding their teeth...). The dimensions are not that far off, either, altho'' the rear end of the Passport is more balanced and therefore offers less room in cabin & storage. My impression is also that the build quality is higher on the Passport. Sorry I didn''t mention these things when replying to your email.

However, I''m wondering if you''re stacking up some apples against organges. For boats comparably equipped, isn''t the Passport significantly more pricey than the 424?
