Re: Help Me ID this boat: Silver Girl of Annapolis, MD

The USCG registry data base lists 13 vessels named Silver Girl. The only one listed with the hailing port of Annapolis is listed as a 48.4 foot boat and shows the boat builder as being Xiamen Hansheng Yachts in China. Sailboat Data only shows one boat built by Xiamen Hansheng which is the Flying Tiger, a 33 footer, that has lines similar to Silver Girl, but does not have the pilot house. The Flying Tiger is shown as having been designed by our own Bob Perry. It could be that Sailboat Data does not have a complete listing of all the boat models manufactured by Xiamen Hansheng Yachts, or it could be a custom built boat.

Maybe it is also a Bob Perry design and he will come on here and let us know.
That's what I found out with a quick internet search.

Sailboat Data says that the Xiamen Hansheng Yacht company also builds boats under the Passport brand name.

Re: Help Me ID this boat: Silver Girl of Annapolis, MD

Nice work Midwesterner!!
I didn't realize the documentation registry had so much info available online?

The hull number begins PAS, which immediately made me think PASsport yachts.
Here she is:
Passport Voyager 480

And where did find a reference for the Passport 480? That boat is not listed on Sailboat Data.

The Passport Yachts website says that their boats are designed by either Robert Perry or Bill Dixon.

Neither Perry nor Dixon list the 480 on their websites, but I'm sure it was one of them!
It appears that prior to a repaint, Silver Girl was used for the promotional photos.
I wonder what a 3-stateroom layout would look like...hmmm...

Coincidentally, our current boat was a Angus Primrose/Bill Dixon design (1986 Moody 34).

The Passport website says that it is a two stateroom boat and shows a diagram of the layout.

Yes, but it says " Standard two staterooms, two head layout arrangement.
Custom interior designs are available on request."
If you look at the island packet 485, you can see a potential 3 stateroom layout.

Or, the alleged builder could respond to an email asking about the boat.

y'all do realize that sailboat data is somewhat like snopes--not reliable. i have found many discrepancies with their info. beware.
