Passport 42 (Stan Huntingford Design)

Friends of ours have recently been forced to put their 1981 Passport 42 on the market due to personal strife. I'm trying to assist in the selling of the boat, meaning giving advice on how best to market the thing but know absolutely nothing about these boats. They seem like a nice bit of kit, teak decks which is a bit of a worry in a boat that old, but no other obvious problems.

Any of you have any experience of the P42 ? I can't find a website that discusses them in general nor any real feedback on them. Even general scuttlebutt would be of assistance. Links would be even better.

As far as I'm aware Huntingford is/was (??) a decent designer and presumable these things were built in Taiwan ?

I'd appreciate any assistance.

Four slightly later models on the market at yachtworld.com.

There is a relatively new 456AC on my dock which I have admired for some time now - young professional couple with lot's of money to throw away. I never knew it was made in Taiwan though - seems high-end.

Aha, I'll Zap a message to LaBatt. Thanks TE.

TB - I've seen the ones for sale. As I said they do seem like a nice bit of kit but I'd like to get some background on them. Not many of them around, as far as I am aware only 51 of them were ever built.

Thats the 40 not the 42. I've asked LaBatt for some info but the 40 is a Robert Perry design while the 42 is by Stan Huntingford

TDW,
You're right, sorry about that, didn't read your post correctly. But I do like the 40.

Chris,
You don't know how close I came to buying your boat! Maybe you owe me a beer? Anyway, I'm glad you ended up with it and I got my Tayana, worked out for the best for both of us.

tdw,
Just noticed a 2000 Passport 42 listed in the new Boatus magazine. If you need the contact info let me know.

My understanding is that it is the same hull as in the Slocum 43 and Formossa 42. Prices vary widely depending on which brand they bear.
