Re: Passport 41
As far as I know there was never a production Passport 41... To me this looks like a Passport 40 that someone modified with the stern platform.. thus the extra foot. Down below she's pure P40.
However if the mods were well done I wouldn't be scared off, and the price looks about right for a good shape P40. That transom modification would be a coastal cruising improvement, for sure.. although it does raise issues with a steering vane. OTOH we had a boat neighbour install a Hydrovane on a C&C 115 last summer, so it's possible.
