Re: Passport 470 or Hylas 46
I'm sure they are both great boats. Occasionally, I hear some grumbling about the Queen Long Shipyard in Taiwan, where Hylas is built (no idea if the 47 was built elswhere). I've never heard anything but good things about the Passport build. But, they are both great brands.
Anecdotally, I was on both the Hylas 63 and the Passport 61 at the Annapolis sailboat show a few weeks ago. In that case, there is no comparison. The Passport seemed, by far, to be the superior boat in both design and quality. Could be personal preference.
