Passport Voyager 480

Model Overview
The new Passport Voyager 480 is the latest design in our long history of creating exceptional long distance cruising yachts that stand alone in their intelligent design, quality and elegance.

The focus in designing and building the new Passport Voyager 480 has been to offer a yacht that can be easily and safely sailed by today’s knowledgeable sailors while also having plenty of room for family and guests. She is another member of our 200 plus mile a day club which Passports have become noted for.

The cockpit is large and secure which bespeaks the Passport pedigree of safe passage making as well as comfortable relaxing while in port. All lines are lead aft to the cockpit which is comfortable and secure and also has a custom stainless steel rimmed windshield for added safety.

Below decks the interior is simply breathtaking. The galley is large and centrally located so the chef is not isolated whether guests are dinning below or in the cockpit. The staterooms and both heads are large and comfortable with plenty of storage, and the main salon is large and bright with large surrounding windows and excellent ventilation. There is even a walk in utility room with volumes of storage, a work bench and even room for a washer dryer.

As with all Passports, the craftsmanship and systems design are simply the very best, providing a carefree and pleasant home on the water that will provide you and your family with years of safe and memorable cruising.

Simply put, the new Passport Voyager 480 is the very best and most comfortable 48 foot passage maker available and is offered at a price that is equally as pleasing.
