Re: Passport 42 designed by Stan Huntingford
I paid $85000 for the Passport 42 in better than average condition. It is quite seaworthy and suprisingly fast for it's weight and class. Bringing it up the coast we got caught in a Noreaster going around the cape. 36 hours of 30 mph sustained winds with gusts to 60 and 15 ft waves. The boat handled it as well as can be expected with double reefed main and roller furled genoa. BTW the Genoa is now blown out and the roller fuler was damaged by the wind pressure. I didn't have the right sail inventory for the sea conditions.
The floor plan is very comfortable with plenty of storage and my only complaint is the 6"4" draft which keeps me out of some places.
Hope that helps,
