Mustangsally - We will have a video review of a Passport 40 in an upcoming episode of the show. It was done with John Kretschmer (part of a "Used Boat Notebook" series of reviews). John said that the PP40/41 is one of his all time favorite boats for a couple to do long distance cruising/passagemaking.

I'll probably finish editing the review in the next couple of weeks. Don't know if it will help you at all, but when it's done I can upload to YouTube and post the video here.

As a P40 owner, I'd love to see the video. We're leaving to cruise on ours with our two kids next week! I always like to see how other P40's are outfitted. We absolutely love ours!

A good, solid, "get you home" boat. Won't win races, but you aren't racing, right? The owners speak highly of the ones that have had the teak decks taken off...teak is a great idea if your boat never moves and you have a crew of detailers...

Actually, Valiente, I beg to differ. We competed in a "pursuit race" this past summer on Champlain. The way a pursuit race is run is that everyone starts at a different time based upon their PHRF rating. The idea is that everyone finishes close together, allowing for an exciting finish for spectators. There were two classes - spinnaker and non-spinnaker. PHRF ratings for non-spinnaker boats were adjusted upward to compensate for the two classes, allowing non-spinnaker boats to finish at the same time as spinnaker boats. It was blowing 15-20 - perfect for us, bad for a lot of lightweight racers. Pelican, Passport 40 #76, was fifth overall across the line and first in the non-spinnaker class. The rating used was the generally accepted rating used for Passport 40's plus the same amount all other non-spinnaker boats had. We proved the - "It's not the boat, it's the people" - theorem since we had two racers on board with us, continuously tweaking our trim. There's nothing like a 12-13 ton cruising boat coming in first! We were also first around every mark. So... easy there with your "won't win races" comment!

Great link, Ray... having crawled around, and through a friend's P40 I can attest to much of what the last poster pointed out. (note, though, that the post is dated 2001 - so anyone reading it today should keep that in mind)

Good tech data for the OP, essentially from a builder!

Friends have a '99 Passport 41 that they bought new. Have cruised extensively including two trips from Long Island to the Carribean via Bermuda. The one major problem was a fuel tank failure on the first trip that dumped gallons of diesel into the bilge. It was an obvious faulty (cold) weld and the Passport dealer refused to do anything. Lied through his teeth when taken to court. Great boat but the dealer stinks.
