This is a high-quality boat…I think with this Passport that you’re going to go sailing around the world and you’re going to really enjoy the voyage and the boat. Alvah Simon

The craftsmanship on this boat is amazing. Few boats are put together as well as this one…At the end of the day, you’re looking at something that seemingly should be twice as expensive.

Finding the Right Sailboat

  When we think about sailing and all the joys that we will experience while aboard, it is sometimes easy to lose sight of what we set out to do and consequently select the wrong type of boat. Part of the allure of sailing is that it gives us a great deal of enjoyment and togetherness as well as a sense of accomplishment. That is true in just about all aspects and types of sailing whether it is extended cruising, week-end outings or competition sailing. The trick is to find the right boat for you and your partner and crew for your intended purpose. That is also part of the allure of sailing and why over the years there have been so many different designs developed and advances made.

As an added bonus we get to meet wonderful people along the way, both fellow cruisers and those who live in those wonderful new destinations. That is what the cruising lifestyle is all about. That leads us back to the topic of having the right boat for you and your family and friends. A friend of mine who was involved in everything from the design...
