Too bad...sort of. The work you've done to that Passport 40, I'd just buy the kids a Shark and tell 'em to keep up as best they can.

Voila! Space problems over! Go sailing!

Chris,
Yeah, funny how that works. Every boat I looked at "had a ton of interest in it" and "I had to hurry". I'll bet that will still be true on that HR next Spring.

I would think the "interest" in a boat of the caliber (cost) of the HR would be limited. I've run into the same story with PSC 34s lately. "Lot's of interest and must act soon" but when you say "no" the boats remain on listed on Yatchworld. Seems like its got to more prevalent at the price point you're at.

Question

Do you really think that boat is going to give you $600,000 worth of more enjoyment than your present boat. Send the laundry out to be done and keep the passport.

Labatt...you saw my boat...and the price... and they ain't lining up even for a shoal draft and ICW mast! I think the HR at >twice the price and with less amenable East Coast attributes will still be there when you are ready for her.
Tough decision I'm sure.

labatt will become famous soon enough
RXBOT - Family of 4 cruising for 1.5+ years... I need a bigger boat than the Passport 40 with two staterooms.

Cam - Who knows... perhaps the HR will still be available in a year. Here's how much they wanted me to buy it. According to my wife, when she spoke with our broker he offered to buy our Passport 40 from us in order to get me to buy the HR.

Any strong nibbles on your boat yet?

I made a lowball offer on a 2000 HR53 in Annapolis, and it was accepted. Now I have to come up with the $300,000. I think that was a good deal, any thoughts?

And I need a surveyor, any recomendations.









Kidding!!!!

Congrats. For a boat survey I'd use Bob Turner, for an engine survey I'd use Chris Oliver Sr and for a rigging survey I'd use John at ESR. Good luck.

There's a nice HR46 for sale in Oxford, MD for considerably less:
