Giu - You're really spoiled over there in Portugal by warm weather most of the year. Remember that Faster sails his boat way up in Western Canada, where cabin heaters are necessary to keep sailor's eyelids from freezing to their eyeballs.

Labatt I really like the location of the engine in the middle of the boat!!! great set up, balances the boat nicely...

Is it noisy in that box with no sound proof?

By the way...isn't your prop too much out of the water???

Nice interior labatt, reminds me of a vintage clipper ship. I don't see any sound insulation around the engine enclosure though. Is it loud for crew who choose to stay below when motoring?

TrueBlue,

That's a standard feature on the Pacific Seacraft Dana 24 and the Crealock 31. Both fairly small boats so this little trick really opens up the cabin.

By the way, my wife is drooling over your interior photos...


Giulietta Asked: "What's the silver box saying Newport in the bulkhead? Is that an oven? ????? very very intrigued"

Giulietta, that is a propane cabin heater. We have the same unit on our boat. It is built by a Canadian company called "Dickinson", and "Newport" happens to be the name of that particular model. They come in two sizes, roughly 9,000 and 12,000 btus, and have an internal electric fan to help circulate the heat. There are similar versions that use diesel and solid fuels. This is a pretty good arrangement for taking the chill off in the early spring and late fall. Compared to the cost of installing an Espar or Webasto forced-hot-air system they are a good value.

It's an incredible boat that's fun to sail. She is well laid out and the quality of the interior woodwork is incredible. Plus, they put some neat artistic designs in, like the curve of the bookshelves and the cabinet doors. Overall, a beautiful, well laid out, comfortable oceangoing vessel. If you truly go look at Passport's, remember that they are custom on the interior. The two major variations are: V-Berth forward, head just aft of the v-berth on the port side (our boat and preferable for being at sea in), and head forward (in the v - making it horrible while underway) with a pullman berth just aft (nice due to large dressing area). Once you move aft, there are a few variations of how the nav station is laid out, and whether there is a second day head onboard (like on ours)...

If we buy the Hallberg-Rassy 53 (offer in on it now) our Passport 40 will be for sale shortly! Too bad it's such a trip from where you are
